And Just Like That... star Sarita Choudhury has responded to the exits of Sara Ramirez and Karen Pittman ahead of season three.

Speaking in an interview with Radio Times, Choudhury said it would be "hard to imagine" filming for the show without them.

"It's so new, the news, and we haven't started shooting, so I don't know what it's gonna be like. But it's definitely hard to imagine just because it takes a while to meld as a group," she said.

Choudhury went on to add that while she had never "been able to act with" Ramirez and Pittman due to her storyline being completely connected to Carrie Bradshaw's [Sarah Jessica Parker], she would miss seeing the pair in the hallways on set.

"I know they're doing other things now, so I'm happy for them," she added.

It was confirmed back in February that Ramírez would not be reprising her role as comedian Che Diaz for the third outing of the Sex and the City spin-off, after featuring in the first two seasons of the show.

A month later, Pittman was confirmed not to be returning as Nya Wallace. The actor was originally set to return for season three, but ultimately wasn't able to commit due to scheduling conflicts.

"It has been a joy to have Karen Pittman play the smart and stunning Professor Nya Wallace on the first two seasons of And Just Like That…" a spokesperson for Max told Deadline.

"Due to her commitments to two other streamer series, it has become apparent that filming three shows at once isn't possible. Due to the production realities, we are disappointed to announce that scheduling conflicts will not allow us to continue with this character as part of season 3 of And Just Like That…,' they continued.

"Karen and Nya will be missed, and her Max family and fans will all be cheering her on in her other endeavours."

Filming for season 3 of And Just Like That... is currently set to begin filming next month following a lengthy production delay, with the new episodes currently penciled in for a 2025 release date.

And Just Like That, the sequel to Sex and the City, airs on Max in the US and Sky Comedy and NOW in the UK.
