Erinn Hayes' 'Kevin Can Wait' Character to Be Killed Off for Leah Remini

Erinn Hayes' 'Kevin Can Wait' Character to Be Killed Off for Leah Remini

This summer, CBS made the decision to not bring back Erinn Hayes‘ character on the CBS sitcom Kevin Can Wait, and instead, decided to bring in Kevin James‘ former King of Queens co-star Leah Remini.

Now it has been revealed that the character will be killed off and there will be a time jump to make sense of bringing in Leah‘s character.

“The character will have passed away and we will be moving forward in time catching up at a later date,” CBS’ Thom Sherman said at the TCA.

One reporter asked if Kevin Can Wait is going to become King of Queens, Thom responded, “No, I don’t think so. I think the show speaks for itself and stands for itself. Obviously the chemistry between Kevin and Leah was amazing in the stunt episode we did at the end of last season, and we decided we want to continue that.”
