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

'Kevin Can Wait': Donna's Dies in Season 2 — Where Is Erinn Hayes? | TVLine

Now, CBS has announced an update for those wondering how Hayes' character will be written off the show: They're going to kill her.

In June, we reported that Hayes was sacked from the show and replaced with Leah Remini. It's unknown how the show will progress, but it is believed that Kevin Gable will be romantically involved with Remini's character, Vanessa.

Reuniting James with his former King of Queens co-star provided such unbelievable chemistry that producers were keen to keep her on for the new season.

"[Her] character will pass away and we will be moving forward in time, catching up at a later date", CBS programming boss Thom Sherman said. After the case was closed, Kevin came home to his wife and learned that Donna has quit her job as a school nurse. "When everybody collectively saw how Leah and Kevin were together in those last couple episodes, there was an undeniable spark there", CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl added.

The executives on the Kevin James comedy will eliminate family man Kevin Gable's wife Donna (Erinn Hayes) for its sophomore season. They are banking on the team-up's familiarity as Remini and Kevin James used to lead another CBS comedy, "King of Queens".

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. Obviously, the chemistry between James and Remini was incredible in the stunt episodes", Sherman said.

"It will be treated with dignity and respect, something that will have taken place in the past."

Last month, a source told TV Line that "Kevin Can Wait" Season 2 will head to a new creative direction. "Genuine, I've been given up from the show", she composed on Twitter at the time. She said the decision was not hers and tweeted, "True, I've been let go from the show".
