While the Grey’s Anatomy still doesn’t have a title, it does have a premiere date. ABC has announced that the new firefighter drama series will launch on Thursday, March 22, 2018, at 9 pm. The spin-off will have a two hour-premiere. Subsequent single episodes will begin airing on March 29th at 9 pm.
Here’s the Alphabet Network’s description of the firefighter series, as well as some images:
The latest series from the executive producers of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away with Murder” follows a group of heroic firefighters at Seattle Fire Station 19 – from captain to newest recruit – as they risk their lives and hearts both in the line of duty and off the clock. These brave men and women are like family, literally and figuratively, and together they put their own lives in jeopardy as first responders to save the lives of others.
The series 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 drama is produced by ABC Studios. Stacy McKee (“Grey’s Anatomy”) serves as showrunner and executive producer, along with Shonda Rhimes (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal,” “How to Get Away with Murder”) and Betsy Beers (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal,” “How to Get Away with Murder”) who also serve as executive producers. Paris Barclay (“Pitch,” “Sons of Anarchy,”) serves as the producing director and executive producer.
