Kevin James is Officially Coming Back to TV

Will it be as great as King of Queens?

Merrill Barr

CBS has officially picked a new comedy starring Kevin James, Kevin Can Wait, which will premiere during the 2016/2017 television season.

The new multi-cam sitcom stars Kevin James, Erinn Hayes and Taylor Spreitler; James plays a newly retired police officer that finds himself facing a whole new set of challenges while spending more time with his family at home.

Since the end of King of Queens, James has grown into a big movie star (Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Zookeeper) whose name is enough to get a film made and draw crowds to theaters. Now, with the comic returning to the small screen, we'll see just how versatile he is, and if Kevin Can Wait will be as glorious a sitcom as the one that made him a household name.
