Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) has a new job in Madam Secretary's final season, and with that comes new statuses for some of the characters.

The CBS drama returns for the 10-episode Season 6 in October, and things will look a bit different (and not just because Elizabeth is in a bigger — and much more important — office). We already knew that Sara Ramirez will not be back as a series regular, but TVLine reported that's not the only change to the cast now that Elizabeth is president after a two-year time jump.
