"I want to say thank you to the amazing cast, crew, producers, and the writers of @kevincanwaitcbs. You accepted me with open arms," Remini wrote on Instagram. "For me to get to work with @officialkevinjames again day in and day out was a Godsend. I laughed everyday, and I will miss that the most. You don't always get a second chance at something that meant so much to you and I did, and I am so grateful for it. It came at a time when I needed to laugh. So thank you all. I am so happy that it happened and I will miss seeing all of you. Thank you to @cbstv and @sony for a great time."
"I want to say thank you to all the fans for the love and support," James said in a separate online post. "I was so blessed to be able to work every day with the most amazing cast, crew, writers and support team! Thank you all! Thank you @cbstvstudios and thank you @sony for your constant dedication to the show. I wouldn't trade this experience for anything in the world... Okay, maybe a season 3."
Remini and James previously starred together in the sitcom The King of Queens for nine seasons from 1998 to 2007. Remini guest starred in Season 1 of Kevin Can Wait and was promoted to full-time cast member in Season 2 after they killed off the character of James' wife Donna, who was played by Erinn Hayes.
