Madam Secretary: Sara Ramirez Not Returning for Final Season!

Madam Secretary is losing a series regular ahead of its final season.

TV Line is reporting that Sara Ramirez is stepping down as a series regular, but there's hope that she could return for a guest appearance to wrap up her character's storyline.

Ramirez has played Kat Sandoval on the political drama since the fourth season. She was drafted in to replace Bebe Neuwirth, who played Nadine Tolliver.

If you watch Madam Secretary online, you know that Kat had left the world of politics behind prior to Elizabeth managing to bring her back into it.

Ramirez is best known for her role on the ABC medical juggernaut Grey's Anatomy. She departed the series after over a decade in the role in 2016.

‘Madam Secretary’: Sara Ramirez Not Returning As Series Regular For Final Season

  • Deadline
When Madam Secretary returns for its abbreviated sixth and final season on CBS, it will be without Sara Ramirez, who will not be returning as a series regular, Deadline has confirmed. Ramirez, who plays political strategist Kat Sandoval, may return for a guest appearance, according to TVLine, which first reported the casting news. Ramirez has been with the political drama series since season four.

Ramirez joined the series following the sudden departure of Bebe Neuwirth who played Nadine Tolliver. Ramirez’s Kat Sandoval is legendary in D.C. for her talent and for abruptly dropping out of politics until Elizabeth (Téa Leoni) managed to coax her back into the State Department.

Madam Secretary was Ramirez’s first series regular TV role since her departure from ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, where she appeared for over a decade as Dr. Callie Torres. Her previous credits include voice roles on Disney Jr.

17 Ships That Will Never Sail, But Should

Every TV Fanatic has a ship they love that probably won't happen. 

The chemistry may be obvious to viewers, but for some reason, the writers just don't want to go there.

There's always a chance that these couples might get together, but as the series goes on, it's starting to feel impossible. 

We created a slideshow below of 17 ships that may never sail, but still should! 

1. Murphy and Raven - The 100 There was a time when we thought Murphy and Raven would get together, but it's beginning to feel less and less likely. Murphy has had a serious love interest for seasons, and we find it hard to believe that The 100 would split them up for good. But it doesn't mean we won't hold out for Murven until the end. 2.

‘To Kill A Mockingbird’, ‘Network’ Snubbed From Tony Award Best Play Category – Complete List Of Nominees

‘To Kill A Mockingbird’, ‘Network’ Snubbed From Tony Award Best Play Category – Complete List Of Nominees
Refresh for updates The lush, very-downtown musical Hadestown topped the Tony Awards nominations list with 14, with the more traditional jukebox musical Ain’t Too Proud coming in at second with 12, a one-two punch as clear a sign as any that Tony voters are in a very expansive mood this year.

At #3, Tootsie has 11 nominations; The Ferryman 9 and Beetlejuice 8.

But the big surprise were the no-votes in the Best Play category for both To Kill A Mockingbird and Network, particularly for Aaron Sorkin’s gloriously reviewed and wildly popular adaptation of Harper Lee’s novel. That omission might be the single biggest Tony snub in years, if not decades.

Deadline will examine that omission and other surprises in a complete analysis of the Tony nominations by Deadline theater critic Greg Evans, coming shortly. Check back soon.

Stage Door: What's in the running for Tony nominations this year?

With Emmy nomination voting still two months away, the Awards calendar is now strictly focused on the Broadway stage: it's Tony season!

The 2019 Tony Award eligibility runs May 31st, 2018 through April 25th, 2019. The eligible shows will find out their fate when Bebe Neuwirth and Brandon Victor Dixon announce the Tony nominations on Tuesday, April 30th. A Tony win, even moreso than an Emmy or Oscar triumph, can result in a huge change in the financial fortunes of the nominee/winner. That's especially true if the show doesn't come with a major marketing hook like "based on a popular movie" or "hear all your favourite songs by so & so!" in the case of jukebox musicals. 

So what's eligible this year? It's not time for predictions yet but we've compiled all the titles for you in chronological order because that's more interesting than alphabetical...

‘The Good Fight’ Season 3 Review: CBS All Access Drama Continues to Get Crazier

‘The Good Fight’ Season 3 Review: CBS All Access Drama Continues to Get Crazier
To really appreciate just how insane a show “The Good Fight” has become, it’s worth going back to revisit its big-sister series, “The Good Wife.” The CBS legal drama, which ran for seven seasons beginning in 2009, was notable for being the last broadcast drama to be nominated for Emmys; its status as a CBS series meant that it never had the buzz of “Mad Men” or “Breaking Bad” during its time. But the courtroom shenanigans that revolved around Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) as she returned to the workplace and, year after year, grew more deeply drawn into the nexus of Chicago politics and legal technicalities

While “Good Wife” was extremely serialized for its time and network, creators Robert and Michelle King were still making 22 episodes a season and leaning on the procedural element more often than not. “Good Fight,” meanwhile… it’s on another planet.

In many ways, “The Good Fight

‘Younger’ Star Sutton Foster Recalls One of Her Early ‘Terrible’ Auditions

  • Variety
The road to success for Sutton Foster was not always an easy journey, but it was a trip she looks back on with laughter.

“Auditions are terrible. They really are,” the “Younger” star told Variety at New York City Center’s 75th anniversary gala, which included a performance of the Broadway audition musical “A Chorus Line.”

“I was auditioning for the revival of ‘Annie’ back in 1996,” Foster recalled. “I came in and the only sheet music I had was ‘Oklahoma.’ I had on horrible Velcro sandals because it was the ’90s. The director said, ‘I want you to come back. I want you to sing a different song. And, I want you to wear different shoes. And, please bring a picture and resume,’ since I didn’t have one.”

The singular moment on the stage didn’t scare her, but rather galvanized her to kick her career in motion. “I

The 24 Hour Musicals Are A Huge Success

Favorites of theatre and screen took to the stage of the American Airlines Theatre in Times Square this week for The 24 Hour Musicals on Broadway.

John Mulaney, Bebe Neuwirth, Corey Cott, Savion Glover, Jackie Cruz, Lea Delaria, Emily Estefan, were just a few of the exceptional group of artists who joined forces to write, direct and perform four original musicals within 24 hours, in support of The Lillys.

The first musical of the evening was The Gordon Four, set at the funeral of talent manager of Wendy Elizabeth Gordon with her friend, Stephon (Savion Glover) who taps the eulogy. The next musical was Backstage At ‘Slavery: The Musical,’ – while the cast waits for a constantly tardy star of the show up. Followed by Things Get Better, set during 1972, The Family Kilbasa performs together on a cruise ship, and off-stage problems come to a head. The
