In honor of TGIT, or just because Shonda Rhimes loves her fans, when Thursday night hit (Jan. 25), we finally learned the title of the Grey’s Anatomy spinoff series. Your newest obsession – if you love Grey’s Anatomy that is – will be officially called Station 19! It is the fire house number after all, so it fits perfectly.
After teasing that there would be a big reveal on Thursday, the cast and Shondaland productions released the name, and it’s simple, yet pretty appropriate, don’t you think?
“It’s finally here!!! We officially have our title…. Station 19 @Station19tv #TGIT See you on Thursday, March 22nd!” the show’s leading lady, Jaina Lee Ortiz shared on Instagram along with a fire house photo.
Before the name was released, there was a lot of speculation about what it would be and if it would be linked to Grey’s Anatomy, and surprisingly it isn’t. The show however will be linked to the doctor drama, but not too closely.
Both series are set in Seattle, and Station 19 will be located only a few blocks down from Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Plus, Grey’s alum Dr. Ben Warren (played by Jason George) will be joining the fire station as a new fire fighter, so there will hopefully be some more character crossover down the road too.
For now, we know that there will be a lot of drama and high stakes as the firefighters try and keep Seattle safe, and it will all begin this March, so get fired up.
Station 19 begins with a two-hour premiere on March 22, 2018 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
