Sara Ramirez Concludes Time On ‘And Just Like That…’

Sara Ramirez’s time has ended on the Sex and the City spinoff series And Just Like That… at Max.

By the end of Season 2, Ramirez’s Che Diaz and Miranda Hobbs (Cynthia Nixon) had split for good and both had moved on to explore new relationships. A source close to production revealed to Deadline last month that Che’s story had concluded, and Ramirez would not be returning for Season 3.

As Che has a strong friendship with Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), they could essentially make appearances in the future. Max declined comment in January and again for this story.

Earlier this year, the Daily Mail claimed Che was being eliminated due to Ramirez’s pro-Palestine social media posts, but sources told Deadline at the time that was false. Ramirez seemingly responded to the news with an Instagram post shared a day later that read, “Don’t let the tabloids distract you from what’s happening in Gaza. Really nice try, though.”

Ramirez starred in And Just Like That… for two seasons as Che, a non-binary stand-up comic, writer and podcast producer who worked with Carrie as she transitioned from newspaper columnist to sex-advice podcaster. Through Carrie, Che meets Miranda, Esq, and there was instant chemistry. An affair began, followed by Miranda’s separation from Steve (David Eigenberg) and an eventual divorce.

Miranda left behind her past to follow Che to Los Angeles in Season 2, where they filmed a pilot for a series they hoped to develop starring Tony Danza as their dad. When that flopped, the couple headed back east, where things fell apart and their romance ended. Jobless, Che found work helping at a vet clinic where they met someone new, leaving their storyline wrapped up with a bow.

Although Ramirez and Nixon’s characters didn’t make a long-term love connection, the two remain great friends. The former shared photos Sunday night via Instagram of Nixon, who is performing Off Broadway in The Seven Year Disappear by Jordan Seavey and directed by Scott Elliott.
