Erinn Hayes Exits CBS's KEVIN CAN WAIT; Leah Remini Joins as Series Regular
Erinn Hayes, who stars as Kevin James' sitcom wife Donna in the hit CBS comedy KEVIN CAN WAIT, turned to Twitter today to confirm reports that she will be leaving the show. Sources tell Variety that her departure is due to "the show going in a different creative direction, and not a reflection of the actress' performance." Check out the post below.
It was recently announced that Leah Remini has signed on as series regular for the show's sophomore season. In the Season 1 finale she appeared in the role of Vanessa Cellucci, an undercover cop and the former partner of James' character. James and Remini starred together as husband and wife on CBS's KING OF QUEENS, which aired for nine seasons.
True, I've been let go from the show. Very sad, I had a great experience season 1. Thank you for all the support from our wonderful fans. https://t.co/HfYKzVuSnT- erinn hayes (@hayeslady) June 3, 2017
