‘Sex and the City’ Reboot: Sara Ramirez Casting Could Reveal Major Storyline

Sara Ramirez will be joining the cast of And Just Like That…, the upcoming Sex and the City reboot. Ramirez is the first new cast member to be announced, although they are not the only one who will join Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes, and Charlotte York in the HBO Max series. The new character announcement also appears to have revealed a major plot point. Is it possible that Carrie has put down her pen and picked up a microphone?

Who will Sara Ramirez play in And Just Like That…?

Ramirez is set to take on the role of Che Diaz, a non-binary stand-up comedian, and podcaster. According to Deadline, the character will play a large role in the upcoming series. Beyond that, though, information is scarce. Ramirez took to Instagram to share the big news with fans. On May 19, they posted a photo of the And Just Like That… script.

Before joining the cast, Ramirez had a long and historic role in Grey’s Anatomy. Ramirez played Dr. Callie Torres from 2006 until 2016. The character, who came out as bisexual in 2009, is often credited with bringing more bisexual representation to television.

Will fans find Carrie Bradshaw behind a microphone instead of behind a computer screen?

Based on the information released about Ramirez’s involvement in the show, it looks like Sarah Jessica Parker’s famed character will find herself sitting behind a microphone instead of a computer screen. According to several sources, Carrie and Che will be working together, at least in some way.

Based on the announcement, Carrie is not only a guest on Che’s podcast, but might be a contributor or cohost. If that is the case, it seems possible that Carrie has found a brand-new career. The last time fans caught up with Carrie, she was still writing. While her column was no longer her main source of income, books about sex, dating, and love were. Perhaps that has changed.

How many new characters will Sex and the City fans meet in And Just Like That…?

Ramirez won’t be the only new face to join the cast. HBO announced that at least three new characters will join Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte in the show’s reboot. Ramirez’s character is the only confirmed addition, thus far. That is likely to change in the coming weeks. Filming is set to begin in New York City this summer.

While the show’s writers insist that new characters will join the cast, one familiar face is interested in showing up. Jennifer Hudson told Entertainment Tonight that she would love to reprise her role as Louise. Hudson portrayed Carrie’s assistant, Louise, in Sex and the City: The Movie. Fans have praised her work in the often-criticized movie.
