Looks like Finding Carter's titular character will be drifting farther from her parents than ever before — as in, to Masada in 70 C.E. Kathryn Prescott's joined the miniseries Dovekeepers , so prepare for some hardcore period garb and a big departure from MTV.

Finding Carter's made its mark during its first season on MTV, distinguishing itself in hipness as the network's top streamed show. It's no surprise with its success that we're already guaranteed to see star Prescott in more — and Finding Carter fans that rest easy that the show will power on, likely with Prescott, as it's already been renewed for Season 2.

As for Dovekeepers, that is a minisries coming to CBS in the nearish future. It's slated to span four hours total, and is an adaptation of the Alice Hoffman novel of the same name. Here's the rundown, according to Amazon:

According to The Wrap, Prescott will be playing Aziza, the warrior's daughter who was raised as a boy. Prescott's mainly been known for MTV shows (Skins before Finding Carter) and The CW (Reign), so it'll be interesting to see her depart in a role like this.
