Kevin Can Wait Cast, Leah Remini Rave About Stinging King of Queens Reunion

Just two weeks shy of the 10th anniversary of The King of Queens series finale, Kevin James and Leah Remini will once again play marrieds on CBS’ Kevin Can Wait.

In the two-part season ender, aptly titled “Sting of Queens,” former police officer Kevin Gable reluctantly agrees to come out of retirement to reprise an undercover assignment with fellow cop — and longtime rival — Vanessa Cellucci (Remini). Worse, they are forced to pose as husband and wife.

“We were always planning on doing something together,” James says in TVLine’s exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Remini’s arrival. “I miss working with her.” Not adorable enough? Stick around to see James’ mini-happy dance when he recounts the moment she agreed to appear on the show.

The Kevin Can Wait finale kicks off on Monday, May 1 at 8/7c; Part 2 airs the following Monday, May 8. Press PLAY on the video above for a glimpse at James and Remini’s on-screen reunion, then chime in below and tell us if you’ll be watching.
