"Hollywood Heights" star Hunter Haley King (Adrianna) has been cast on "The Young and the Restless" as the new Summer Newman.

King's name was tossed about by Soap Opera Digest soon after Lindsay Bushman, let go Wednesday, tweeted that a Hollywood Heights star would be replacing her. "Ahhh! #YR is being invaded by #HollywoodHeights and has replaced yet another actress on YR. Guess who?! Me. Haha well onward and upward."

Though the show has not confirmed King's hiring, Y&R star Max Ehrich (Fen) tweeted Thursday night about working with the actress. "Hey @HunterHaleyKing!" he tweeted. "Great working with you yesterday. Looking forward to a long journey! :)" He has since deleted the tweet.

King played mean girl Adrianna Masters on the Nick-at-Nite summer soap opera. She is the second cast member from Heights to be hired as a recast. Robert Adamson (Phil, HH) replaced Kevin Schmidt as Noah Newman earlier this month.

No first airdate has been announced.
