Watros, who plays Kelly Andrews on the series, is moving on for the upcoming MTV series “Finding Carter.”
That series, which has received a 12-episode order, follows a teen who who discovers that her mother actually kidnapped her as a toddler. The teen must then return to the family who thought they had lost her, which includes brand new parents, a twin sister, high school and boys.
Watros’ last episode will air April 16, with McClain debuting in the role April 24.
