In late January, MTV gave a series order to its pilot "Finding Carter," which follows a teenage girl named Carter (Kathryn Prescott) who discovers that the woman who has been raising her isn’t actually her mother at all. With the pick up, actress Cynthia Watros was forced to vacate the role of "The Young and the Restless'" Kelly Andrews, a role currently portrayed by Cady McClain (ex-Dixie Martin, "All My Children"), as the filming schedule would have conflicted with that of the CBS daytime drama series - "Carter" films in Georgia while "Y&R" films in California. Thankfully, Watros' decision has paid off. The network announced today that it has picked up the series for a second season that will consist of 12 all-new episodes like it did during its first season. In the series, Watros portrays Carter's biological mother who seeks to reacquaint herself with her daughter.
