Grey's Anatomy has been one of ABC's strongest performers since it debuted way back in 2005, and it's still going strong in its current Season 14. Fans are soon going to get a double dose of the Grey's Anatomy universe in primetime thanks to the upcoming debut of the spinoff, called Station 19. The long-awaited spinoff (which went quite a while without actually receiving a name) will center on a group of firefighters not too far from Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. In fact, one Grey's Anatomy regular is making the jump to the spinoff. Now, ABC finally released a full trailer for Station 19, and it's smoking hot and intense. Take a look!
Sign me up! The two-minute trailer indicates that Station 19 will deliver plenty of fire in the firefighter drama. The characters appear to be in very real danger quite a lot, which may go a long way to explain the various hookups already being teased. Much like the doctors of Grey's Anatomy, the firefighters seem to blow off steam via hookups -- some of which may be distinctly ill-advised.
The series will evidently put the Station 19 captain in danger early on, which will make for an emotional ride for his daughter, Andy. She'll clearly see her father's crisis of health as an opportunity to step up at the station, and it's impressive that she was able to turn off her tears after a few moments in a hospital closet. The trailer also makes it clear that Ben Warren won't be taken altogether seriously by his new coworkers, which makes sense. He may not be the typical age of a newbie, but all his years of surgery don't automatically make him a seasoned firefighter. Hopefully Station 19 will be able to mine his presence for some humor.
We've known for a while that the spinoff was set to follow a group of firefighters who prove their heroism on a daily basis out of Fire Station 19. Some are family by blood but all are family brought together by the stresses and dangers of the job. Season 19 stars Jaina Lee Ortiz as Andy Herrera, Jason George as Ben Warren, Grey Damon as Jack Gibson, Barrett Doss as Victoria Hughes, Alberto Frezza as Ryan Tanner, Jay Hayden as Travis Montgomery, Okieriete Onaodowan as Dean Miller, Danielle Savre as Maya Bishop, and Miguel Sandoval as Captain Pruitt Herrera.
The first episode of Station 19 will be a two-hour event kicking off on Thursday, March 22 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. The show will then move to its regular time slot of Thursdays at 9 p.m. starting on March 29. For more important dates for the coming weeks, be sure to swing by our midseason TV premiere guide.
