And just like that, Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte have a new pal.

Sara Ramírez, 45, has been cast in the “Sex and the City” reboot, “And Just Like That,” HBO Max announced Wednesday, alongside stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis.

Ramírez will play “Che Diaz,” whom a press release described as “a non-binary, queer, stand-up comedian that hosts a podcast on which Carrie Bradshaw is regularly featured.”

The character, who uses they/them pronouns, will no doubt be dropping some wokeness on the trio — who won’t have Samantha Jones to teach them the ways of the modern world of sex, since Kim Cattrall will not be returning to the series.

“Che is a big presence with a big heart whose outrageous sense of humor and progressive, human overview of gender roles has made them and their podcast very popular,” HBO said.

Ramírez, who won a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for “Monty Python’s Spamalot” in 2005, is best known for making history as the longest-running LGBTQ+ character on TV, as orthopedic surgeon Dr. Callie Torres on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.” They came out as non-binary last year, and noted on Instagram that preferred pronouns are both she/her and they/them.

“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,” executive producer Michael Patrick King said in a statement. “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.”

“And Just Like That,” which will be a ten-episode, half-hour series, is scheduled to begin production in New York this summer.
