The new season of Kevin Can Wait will be dark. This week, CBS revealed how star Erinn Hayes will be written out of the TV show, Deadline reports.
In June, we reported that Hayes was fired from the show and replaced with Leah Remini. On the sitcom, she played the wife of Kevin James’ lead character, retired police officer Kevin Gable.
So how will Kevin Can Wait deal with Hayes’ exit? According to CBS EVP Thom Sherman, her character will be killed off:
[T]he character will have passed away, and we will be moving forward in time catching up at a later date.”
When asked if Hayes had input on how her character would leave the show, CBS Entertainment chief Kelly Kahl simply said “no.”
Season two of Kevin Can Wait debuts on CBS on September 25th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
What do you think? Did you watch season one of Kevin Can Wait? Will you watch season two without Hayes?
