‘Station 19’ is an American action drama series that airs on ABC. It premiered on March 22, 2018, and has been created by Stacy McKee. McKee is also an executive producer for the show along with Shonda Rhimes, the creator of ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘, Betsy Beers, and Paris Barclay. ABC Studios and Shonda Rhimes’ banner Shondaland, are the production companies backing the show, while Tia Napolitano, Anupam Nigam, Jim Campolongo, Trey Callaway, Angela Harvey, Phillip Iscove, and Christine Larson-Nitzsche serve as producers.
‘Station 19’ is the second spin-off to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, which is why Rhimes serves as an executive producer. It is set in Seattle and follows the exploits of the men and women in Seattle Fire Station 19. The other spin-off to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ has of course been ‘Private Practice’ which aired on ABC as well, and ran from September 26, 2007, to January 22, 2013. It followed the life of Dr. Addinson Montgomery, played by Kate Walsh, who left the Seattle Grace Hospital to join a private practice, at the Seaside Wellness Center (formerly Oceanside Health & Wellness Group), in Los Angeles. Anyhow, ‘Station 19’ is also set in the same universe as these two shows.
Station 19 has seen two successful seasons till now. Here’s everything we know about its upcoming season.
Station 19 Cast: Who is in it?
Station 19 stars Jaina Lee Ortiz as Andrea ‘Andy’ Herrera, a lieutenant at Station 19, and Jason George as Ben Warren. Warren is the character tying ‘Station 19’ to the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ universe as he was a former anesthesiologist turned surgical resident at the Sloan Memorial Hospital before trading in his scrubs for the fireman’s uniform. The other firemen features in ‘Station 19’ series are 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, Miguel Sandoval as Captain Pruitt Herrera and Brenda Song as JJ. ‘Code Black’ alum Boris Kodjoe plays the role of Robert Sullivan, the new chief and a seasoned firefighter with a mysterious past.
Hopefully, the upcoming season will see the main cast return and their ranks are expected to be bolstered by interesting supporting and guest cast members who are bound to push the narrative forward and keep things interesting.
