Sara Ramirez announced on her Twitter that she will be premiering a new character named Kat Sandoval on Madame Secretary this November.

As you can see from the photo, there’s no question as to whether or not Ramirez will continue to use her stardom to represent strong, female LGBT characters. That hair. That tie. And that chain though. Swoon.


Here are some of the best Twitter reactions to the news. Fans are obviously excited, and we can’t blame them! Set your TiVo, ladies.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Ramirez’s new character is, “a brilliant political strategist, legendary in D.C. for her talent and for abruptly dropping out of politics until Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) manages to coax her back into the State Department.”

We can’t wait to see what Kat Sandoval has in store for us.
