Doug and Carrie Heffernan are coming back together. Sort of! Leah Remini is set to partner up once again with her former TV husband, Kevin James, in the Season 1 finale of James’ new CBS sitcom “Kevin Can Wait,” it was announced by the network Friday. James and Remini had starred together for nine seasons on the hit series “The King of Queens,” which had aired on CBS back then.

‘Kevin Can Wait’
In the episode, Kevin will be seen coming out of retirement to continue his undercover assignment in the ongoing police investigation. He’ll team up with his fellow cop Vanessa Cellucci (Leah) and they’ll have to pose as husband and wife in order to not let the people know their real identity.
In July 2015, Remini talked about the audition she had with the Grown Ups star.
“He made me laugh in the first two seconds of meeting him. It was just instant chemistry. Really, Kevin was the reason I did [the show], Kevin was very disarming when I walked in the room. Kevin smiles with his eyes, and there’s something so sweet and warm about somebody like [that]… Their soul comes out. He was one of those people to me. So, I fell in love with him, and he was my ‘husband’ for 10 years.”
After the news was out, Leah and Kevin, 51, both took to Twitter to have a little fun. Leah retweeted CBS’ tweet and added, “Can’t wait for
#KevinCanWait.” Kevin also tweeted,
“My old wife meets my new wife. Awkward.
These two are just the cutest!
