From one CBS sitcom to the next, Leah Remini and Kevin James still make a pretty good pair.

From one CBS sitcom to the next, Leah Remini and Kevin James still make a pretty good pair.

Remini — who recently joined the cast of "Kevin Can Wait" — took to Instagram Friday to share a few sweet snaps from her first week on set.

"It's been an amazing first week on @kevincanwaitcbs," she captioned the post. "So blessed that I had my family with me. Thank you to all who came out tonight, cast, crew, writers, thank you for the love!"

The ex "The King of Queens" star was hired as a series regular in June opposite James, her former on-screen husband.

The pair played Doug and Carrie Heffernan on "King of Queens" from 1998 to 2007.

Remini previously guest-starred on "Kevin Can Wait" for two episodes at the end of Season 1, playing Vanessa Cellucci, a tough undercover cop who coaxes James' Kevin Gable out of retirement briefly for one more assignment, in which the pair pose as husband and wife.

Come Season 2, Gable will join a new security firm run by Vanessa.

It's been an amazing first week on @kevincanwaitcbs, so blessed that I had my family with me. Thank you to all who came out tonight, cast, crew, writers, thank you for the love! and thank you to @Casper for the gift, now my daughter and I can get cozy in our new mattress!

Remini's new, full-time gig was announced in June as Erinn Hayes, who played James's wife Donna on "Kevin Can Wait," announced her departure from the series.

CBS revealed earlier this month that when the show returns in the fall, Donna will have been killed off, and James' character will be a widower.

"I think when everybody collectively saw how Leah and Kevin were together in those last couple of episodes, there was an undeniable spark there," CBS President Kelly Kahl said. "I think Leah and the studio and network got together and we wanted to keep that magic together."

Kahl also confirmed that the pair "will date at some point" on-screen.

"Kevin Can Wait," the most-watched new comedy on TV last season, will return to CBS Sept. 25.
