Netflix comedy-drama series The Baby-Sitters Club (The BSC) has managed to gain widespread fame and attract viewers from all around the world. Perhaps that’s why it was renewed for a second season – which premiered on October 11, 2021.

When the second season premiered, audiences noticed one major change in the show’s cast members. The actress who played the role of Dawn Schafer in season one was recast and was played by actress Kyndra Sanchez in season two.

So, who played the role of Dawn Schafer in The Baby-Sitters Club’s season one? Well, the person is the American actress Xochitl Gomez. But why did she leave the show?

As per reports, it’s believed that there was a scheduling conflict. At that time, Gomez was cast as America Chavez, aka Miss America, in the sequel to 2016’s Dr. Strange movie, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

The Marvel movie –  releasing on May 6, 2022 – was to be filmed around the same time as the second season of The Baby-Sitters Club. Thus, the actress bid farewell to the Netflix show and joined the superhero movie.
