McLellan played Special Agent Meredith Brody on the CBS spin-off. Her departure was reportedly a "creative decision," according to TVLine, which first reported the news, and will be incorporated into the plot of the show. At the end of Season 2, Brody was romantically involved with a Homeland Security agent played by Ivan Sergei who turned out to be a traitor.
