Kevin Can Wait is an American sitcom television series starring Kevin James that aired on CBS from September 19, 2016 to May 7, 2018. The series marked James' second starring role in a CBS sitcom, after The King of Queens, which ran from 1998 until 2007.
The series began with James starring as a recently retired Nassau County, New York police officer and father of three, married to Donna (Erinn Hayes). Beginning with season two, the character of Donna has died, and the series' new female lead is Vanessa Cellucci (Leah Remini), Kevin's former rival on the force and now his partner at their new security company, Monkey Fist Security. While the first season focused on Kevin's personal and family life, the second concerns his new profession, his relationship with Vanessa, and his adjustment to life as a single parent.
On May 12, 2018, CBS cancelled the series after two seasons and 48 episodes.
