Less than 24 hours following Grey’s Anatomy’s renewal announcement comes the news that sister series Station 19 has also been renewed.
The show will officially return for season 6 during the 2022/23 primetime TV schedule, with Krista Vernoff set to return as showrunner, ABC has confirmed.
“It’s a privilege to tell stories of our heroic first responders, who on our show and in real life put their lives on the line every day to keep us all safe,” said Vernoff. “I’m so grateful to Disney and ABC for the early pickup for season six of Station 19! It’s a tribute to the incredible work of our talented cast, crew, writers and creative team, as well as the dedication of our loyal fans who tune in every week.”
Based in the same story-telling universe as Grey’s Anatomy, the series follows a group of heroic Seattle firefighters as they “put their lives and hearts on the line” to save lives.
“The riveting storytelling and passionate fan base that Station 19 continues to cultivate is a testament to the unrelenting dedication of Krista Vernoff and the incredibly talented cast and crew,” said Craig Erwich, president, Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment. “Coupled with yesterday’s renewal of Grey’s Anatomy, the return of Station 19 ensures more crossover opportunities and a thrilling night of appointment television.”
Station 19 stars Jaina Lee Ortiz as Andy Herrera, Jason George as Ben Warren, Boris Kodjoe as Robert Sullivan, Grey Damon as Jack Gibson, Barrett Doss as Victoria Hughes, Jay Hayden as Travis Montgomery, Danielle Savre as Maya Bishop, Stefania Spampinato as Carina DeLuca and Carlos Miranda as Theo Ruiz.
The series was created by Stacy McKee. Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers serve as executive producers.
