Get ready for a “King of Queens” reunion.

CBS announced Friday that Leah Remini will reunite with her former TV husband, Kevin James in the two-part, first-season finale (May 1 and 8 at 8 p.m.) of CBS’ “Kevin Can Wait.”

In the episodes, former Nassau County cop Kevin Gable (James) comes out of retirement to briefly resume his undercover assignment in which he and fellow cop Vanessa Cellucci (Remini) pose as husband and wife.

James and Remini co-starred as Doug and Carrie Heffernan on the CBS sitcom “The King of Queens,” which aired from 1998-2007.

“Kevin Can Wait,” which is filmed at Bethpage’s Gold Coast Studios, was renewed earlier this week for a second season.
