Kevin Can Wait season 2 is officially back in production, and there’s more than one familiar face on set these days.

On Friday (Aug. 11), Leah Remini shared a few pictures of her first full week on the set of Kevin Can Wait, after being picked up as a series regular in June. From the looks of it, Remini and the comedy’s star, Kevin James, are already back to their old ways.

“It’s been an amazing first week on @kevincanwaitcbs, so blessed that I had my family with me. Thank you to all who came out tonight, cast, crew, writers, thank you for the love! and thank you to @Casper for the gift, now my daughter and I can get cozy in our new mattress!” Remini captioned a series of three pictures.

While this might look like another episode of King of Queens — which both Remini and James starred on as husband and wife back in the late ‘90s and early ‘00s — it’s actually the duo’s second comedy together, and the chemistry appears to still be there (at least based on the funny first picture).

Last season, fans got a taste of what a King of Queens reunion would look like when Remini guest starred on the show for two episodes as Vanessa Cellucci, James’ character Kevin Gable’s former partner (they went undercover together).


With the series writing off Erinn Hayes’ character (Kevin’s wife) next season, Remini will be reprising her role and filling the shoes of the lead female in the cast. She already looks happy on set with her former TV husband and current ex-partner so, we can’t wait to see what happens on screen with these two.

Kevin Can Wait returns for its second season on September 25, 2017 on CBS.
