Deja Vu! Kevin James and Leah Remini to Reunite in 2-Part ‘Kevin Can Wait’ Season Finale
They made marital magic on CBS for 207 episodes of The King Of Queens (1998-2007), so it was only a matter of time before Leah Remini would guest star on Kevin James’s freshman sitcom, Kevin Can Wait, also on CBS.
Remini will appear on the two-part first season finale airing May 1 and 8 as a fellow cop named Vanessa Cellucci, who helps bring Kevin out of retirement for an undercover assignment in an ongoing police investigation. And, yes, they will be undercover as husband and wife.
Kevin Can Wait was one of a slew of CBS series renewed this week for the 2017-2018 season. The series, which features James as a retired cop realizing that retirement isn’t as fun as he thought it would be, also stars Erinn Hayes, Taylor Spreitler, Mary-Charles Jones, James DiGiacomo, Ryan Cartwright, Lenny Venito, Gary Valentine and Leonard Earl Howze.
Remini’s docuseries, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, was recently picked up for a second season on A&E.
