Erinn Hayes' Character Will Be Killed Off 'Kevin Can Wait'

Erinn Hayes' character is being replaced by Leah Remini. On the sitcom, she played the wife of Kevin James' lead character, retired police officer Kevin Gable. Viewers will be able to sort out their feelings on the matter when they tune in (or don't) for the season 2 premiere of Kevin Can Wait slated for September 25.

"The character will have passed away", CBS programming manager Thom Sherman clarified at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, Variety reports.

When asked if Hayes had input on how her character would leave the show, CBS Entertainment chief Kelly Kahl simply said "no". After the case was closed, Kevin came home to his wife and learned that Donna has quit her job as a school nurse. "When everyone collectively saw how Kevin and Leah worked together in the last few episodes there was an undeniable spark there".

When the CBS sitcom Kevin Can Wait returns next season it will manage to look very different and yet very familiar at the same time. For those who don't know, James and Remini share a long history with each other, depicting a married couple on another CBS comedy, King of Queens. But it seems that Hayes was released from her role after James and the network was pleased with guest shots by Remini. "Kevin, the studio [Sony] and the network wanted to keep that magic and chemistry going forward". Leah was a stunt episode at the end of the season.

When a reporter questioned if Kevin Can Wait was becoming too similar to King of Queens with Remini's casting, Sherman responded, "No, I don't think so".

Kevin Can Wait will flash forward for its second season, but the Gable family will be missing its matriarch.

"True, I've been let go from the show", she tweeted back in June.

"We love both those actors, and we did not want to lose them", said Kahl, who didn't address any specifics.
