Last May, ABC announced that showrunner Stacy McKee and Shonda Rhimes, creator and head writer behind the hit show Grey's Anatomy, will be spearheading a new show based off the long-running medical drama.
More details about the spin-off, including the plot line and cast, emerged in October. At the time, the show was untitled, but it was confirmed that the story will revolve around the professional and personal lives of firefighters at Station 19, located just three blocks from Grey Sloan Memorial.
Ellen Pompeo, who portrays Dr. Meredith Grey on the original series, will co-executive produce the show alongside Rhimes. At the time, it was unclear if her character will crossover, but then it was revealed that at least one Grey's Anatomy series regular would be taking on a lead role on the new show.
Jason George, who plays Dr. Ben Warren, officially left the flagship show to join the firefighting world. George joins Rosewood alum Jaina Lee Ortiz, who will be the show's leading lady, Andy.
In late January, ABC teased fans with more details about the upcoming series, which has officially been titled Station 19. The 10 episode season will air its pilot in March, and now, after much anticipation, the network has finally released the first trailer.
