News broke earlier this summer that Kevin James television wife on ‘Kevin Can Wait’ was let go after the first season. His wife, Donna, was played by Erinn Hayes. At the end of the first season Donna had quit her job when she was skipped over for a promotion at work, leaving her jobless like Kevin.
The second season will be a time jump and the death of Donna will have already passed.
Leah Remini was promoted to a series regular after her appearance on the two part season finale. Remini used to play Kevin James television wife for nine season on ‘King of Queens.’ Many are worried about the show becoming ‘King of Queens’ 2, but Thom Sherman, Senior Exec VP of Programming, said, “No, I don’t think so. I think the show speaks for itself and stands for itself.”
Hayes wrote on social media following her exit from the show. “Very sad, I had a great experience season 1. Thank you for all the support from our wonderful fans.”
‘Kevin Can Wait’ returns Monday, September 25, 2017.
