'Kevin Can Wait' to kill off Erinn Hayes' character, CBS reveals

Iain Armitage Zoey Perry Young Sheldon

After a highly rated two-episode guest arc in May, she'll permanently join the show next season, leading to the obvious question: Is "Kevin Can Wait" about to become "The King of Queens 2.0?" Known for clashing with the show's producers, Remini was sacked from the show after one season. While James will return to play the titular Kevin, the show will spectacularly kill off Erinn Hayes's Donna Gable in a time (and shark) jump - cue exhaustive groans. "Obviously, the chemistry between James and Remini was wonderful in the stunt episodes", Sherman said. On the same day, Erinn Hayes shared she was cut from the series.

During Tuesday's CBS executive session at the Television Critics Association press tour, now underway in Beverly Hills, CBS Executive Vice President Thom Sherman and CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl were asked by a reporter about how the show is planning to address the character's departure. "I think Leah and the studio and network got together and we wanted to keep that magic together".

The first season of Kevin Can Wait was very successful, so getting rid of one of the stars was a curious decision. Kahl promised that Donna Gable's death will be addressed "tastefully" and that it would help to move the series forward, but he admitted that the death of a wife and mother is not a amusing storyline. It's unknown how the show will progress, but it is believed that Kevin Gable will be romantically involved with Remini's character, Vanessa. "Obviously the chemistry between Kevin and Leah was awesome in the stunt episode we did at the end of last season, and we decided we want to continue that".




James and Remini starred together for nine seasons on "King of Queens", which ended its run on CBS in 2007.

But even though Kevin Can Wait was the most successful new comedy on television a year ago, CBS now thinks they shouldn't have tried to fix something that wasn't broken. All that is known now is what was revealed at the end of Season 1.
