Sherman was asked about that notion as well, but he says that Kevin Can Wait stands on its own. Then, they announced they would replace Hayes with Leah Remini, best known as James' wife on "The King of Queens", the long-running CBS comedy that ended in 2007.
At the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, CBS executives revealed that Hayes' character will be killed off to make room for Remini's character, Vanessa Cellucci, who made her debut in the season-one finale. "Obviously, the chemistry between James and Remini was wonderful in the stunt episodes", Sherman said.
It's no surprise that some Kevin Can Wait fans were up in arms about the news that Donna Gable will be killed off.
"The character will have passed away and we will be moving forward in time catching up at a later date", CBS exec Thom Sherman said.
The decision to fire Hayes came after actress Leah Remini guest-starred in the last two episodes of Kevin Can Wait's first season.
While the Kevin James comedy Kevin Can Wait may have slipped under your radar in its freshman year, prepare to take note - maybe just not for the right reasons.
CBS has stressed that when they send Donna Gable to that cast reshuffling castle in the sky they will do so with "dignity and respect".
In June when news broke that Hayes would not be returning for Season 2 of "Kevin Can Wait", Hayes said she was "very sad" and confirmed that the departure was not her call, tweeting, "True, I've been let go from the show".
James plays a retired police officer on the series. But the network insisted the show will not be a redux of "King of Queens".
