Former Grey's Anatomy star Sara Ramírez is joining the cast of Sex and the City.

Ramírez has been cast in a recurring role in HBO Max's event series And Just Like That… as a podcaster named Che Diaz who frequently has Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) on their show.

Che is queer and nonbinary, and their views on gender identity have made their podcast extremely popular in the world of Sex and the City (via Entertainment Weekly).

Ramírez's casting comes on the heels of reports that Sex and the City boss Michael Patrick King would be adding several characters from diverse backgrounds to the cast to better represent Carrie and friends' social circle.

King has now said: "Everyone at And Just Like That is beyond thrilled that a dynamically talented actor such as Sara Ramírez has joined the Sex and the City family.

"Sara is a one-of-a-kind talent, equally at home with comedy and drama – and we feel excited and inspired to create this new character for the show."

Ramírez is best known for playing one of the longest-running LGBTQ+ characters in TV, Dr Callie Torres, on Grey's Anatomy.

Since leaving Grey's, they starred in the political drama series Madam Secretary as policy advisor Kat Sandoval for two seasons.

And Just Like That… will bring back original cast members Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon without Kim Cattrall's Samantha Jones for a brand new chapter.

John Corbett has also announced that he will be returning as Carrie's one-time boyfriend Aidan Shaw.

The Sex and the City revival series will be airing on HBO Max in the US for 10 all-new episodes, with filming set to begin this summer.
