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.

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.
