On Sunday, James, 53, and Remini, 47, thanked the cast, crew, network and fans.
“I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything in the world… Okay, maybe a season 3. Love to all,” James captioned his Instagram of a jacket embroidered with the sitcom’s title.
“For me to get to work with @officialkevinjamesagain day in and day out was a Godsend,” Remini captioned a selfie with her friend. “I laughed everyday, and I will miss that the most. You don’t always get a second chance at something that meant so much to you and I did, and I am so grateful for it. It came at a time when I needed to laugh.”
Meanwhile, Hayes, 41, has moved on to the Amazon comedy The Dangerous Book for Boys.
