Erinn Hayes hasn't directly responded to the news that her character is being killed off of "Kevin Can Wait," but she has been liking all kinds of supportive (and anti-show) tweets. One tweet she responded to suggested her for a role on "This Is Us."
Mandy Moore's character, Rebecca Malone Pearson, is said to have a sister, and it turns out Erinn Hayes and Mandy Moore played sisters before in an unaired pilot.
Here's the exchange:
I wouldn't fight that. We actually played sisters back on the day for a never seen pilot.— erinn hayes (@hayeslady) August 3, 2017
There you go. She even got the writers involved.
Erinn Hayes confirmed back in June that she was "let go" from the CBS sitcom, as Leah Remini was announced to be joining Season 2 as a series regular. It wasn't clear at the time how they would write out Kevin's wife Donna, but it was just revealed that Donna will have "passed away," with the show using a time jump to explain her absence.
"This Is Us" Season 2 premieres September 26 on NBC. Follow #ThisIsUs for all of the Season 2 updates coming out of today's TCAs.
