Leah Remini’s recent Instagram video share has left fans feeling very nostalgic and wondering if Leah is dropping some big hints about a possible King of Queens reboot. In today’s television world where beloved TV shows of the past can be given a new life, it is safe to assume that the idea is never really out of the question.
This is why so many fans are going crazy questioning Leah Remini and Kevin James’ fun Instagram video share. It has been a long time for King of Queens fans and considering the immense popularity of the series then and now Tv junkies are hopeful.
Do You Miss Leah Remini As Carrie Heffernan?
The video reveals James sitting on a sofa at a party where he wants to introduce his real-life wife when in the background Leah Remini jumps in to smack James playfully on the face. In a fun and bold Carrie Heffernan fashion, Leah and Kevin turn the clock back reminding us all just how much we miss Doug and Carrie.
Fans began immediately commenting on how much they still miss the show and questioning the chance of a King of Queens reboot.
“You guys need to do the King of Queens again. I still watch it every day,” writes one commenter.
“Bring King of Queens’ back!” adds another.
Fans Demand King of Queens Reboot
However, should the fans ever get their wishes, things would be very different for the Heffernans in 2022. Sadly, one key person would be missing from family dynamics. Jerry Stiller passed away in 2020 at the age of 92 from natural causes and would leave a big hole in the Heffernan household reboot.
But much like the Mad About You reboot on Spectrum, fans believe the series could continue on. When the series ended, Carrie and Doug had just adopted a baby and received the news that Carrie was also pregnant. The series could focus on Doug and Carrie’s life as parents as they struggle through raising a family in 2022.
Leah Remini and Kevin James TV’s Favorite Couple?
The hit CBS comedy sitcom first began airing in September of 1998 and ran nine seasons ending its run in May of 2007.

The couple finds a classic TV Honeymooners humor and the family feels in each episode.

Doug is a happy-go-lucky UPS package delivery driver, who is content leading his average-Joe life of work, sports food, and friends. All while dealing with a sassy and over-demanding wife.
Carrie works as a legal secretary and is faced with the chore of working and having a child-like spouse while dealing with her aging father.
The hit series found fans flocking to their television sets for nine seasons before saying goodbye to fans with a climatic and amusing two-part series finale. Leah and Kevin have remained close friends over the years and even reunited for a brief period in a new sitcom starring Kevin James Kevin Can Wait. The show ran for two seasons from 2016-to 2018.
Since the series finale in 2007, the show continues to run in syndication throughout the United States. Fans can enjoy streaming the entire 207 episode series on the Peacock streaming service.
