Plot Synopsis

KEVIN CAN WAIT is a half-hour comedy series that stars Kevin James as a newly retired police officer looking forward to spending carefree, quality time with his wife and three kids, only to discover he faces tougher challenges at home than he ever did on the streets. Kevin's retirement plans consist of chilling with his family and having epic adventures with fellow retirees Goody, his former partner and close friend; and Duffy, his oldest pal; as well as his brother, Kyle, a fireman whose closest encounter with a blaze would be a grease fire in the firehouse kitchen. However, Kevin's dream is jeopardized when he discovers that Donna, his wonderful wife of 20 years, has shielded him from key family info while he worked overtime protecting the community. Their usually reliable eldest, Kendra, is dropping out of college so she can support her unemployed fiance, Chale, while he designs the next "big app"; his teenage daughter, Sara, has budding anger-management issues; and their youngest, Jack, is a bit of a hypochondriac. For now, his plans for a cushy life will have to wait, because Kevin has work to do, and this time, his family is his beat. Season 2 of KEVIN CAN WAIT premiered on Monday, September 25, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT on CBS, with Leah Remini joining the regular cast as Vanessa Cellucci after a two-episode guest appearance the previous season. In the season opener, "Civil Ceremony," Kendra and Chale must get married immediately when the Gables learn that he is about to be deported.
