UPDATE: Shortly after the news that Leah Remini would become a series regular, Erinn Hayes, who plays Kevin James' wife on the show, confirmed that she was leaving. "True, I've been let go from the show," she tweeted. "Very sad, I had a great experience season 1. Thank you for all the support from our wonderful fans."
It's like King of Queens never ended!
Leah Remini has signed on as a series regular on Kevin Can Wait season two, reuniting with her TV husband, Kevin James, ET confirms.
The move comes after Remini's appearance on the comedy's season finale last month was a ratings win for CBS.
The pair talked to ET in early May ahead of the season finale, where they talked about their TV reunion, and explained that their friendship didn't end when the King of Queens cameras stopped rolling.
"We're always in touch," James told ET, nearly 10 years to the day after their sitcom ended its nine-season run. "She's in my life forever. I can't get rid of her!"
