McKenna joined The Young and the Restless after the departure of Michael Muhney, sparking conversations that he would be the replacement Adam.

However, that role later went to Justin Hartley, who will begin this fall.

Instead, McKenna will be jumping networks to play Nick Vera, a covert role on the new NBC series. No other details are available at this time, but we'll keep an eye on it for you.

On his Twitter feed, McKenna assured fans that he'll remain with the CBS soap and that the two networks were working well together with regard to his schedule.
