CBS announced today that Kevin Can Wait has been renewed for a second season. The freshman comedy, which premiered last fall, stars Kevin James in his first leading role on television since his nine-year stint on The King of Queens. The series is off to a solid start in its debut run, where it has established itself as a reliable performer on Monday nights.

Kevin Can Wait stars James as a recently-retired police officer looking forward to having more free time to spend with his family and fellow-retired cop friends. But when his oldest daughter decides to drop out of college in order to support her fiancé, Kevin puts his plans on hold and moves them both into his home so that his daughter can stay in school.

Look for Season 2 to premiere as part of the network's 2017-2018 lineup this fall.
