Kevin Can Wait stars James, Erinn Hayes, Taylor Spreitler, Mary-Charles Jones, James DiGiacomo, Ryan Cartwright, Lenny Venito, Gary Valentine and Leonard Earl Howze.
Kevin James, Rock Reuben, Rob Long, Jeff Sussman, Andy Fickman, Tony Sheehan and Steve Mosko are executive producers for CBS Television Studios in association with Sony Pictures Television.
As previously announced, Kevin Can Wait has been renewed for a second season.
The two-part Season 1 finale airs Monday, May 1 and Monday, May 8 (8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT) on CBS.
Remini is repped by APA, Art2perform, and Hirsch Wallerstein Hayum Matlof & Fishman.
