An action drama from creator Stacy McKee, Station 19 is a spin-off of Shondaland’s Grey’s Anatomy. It stars Jaina Lee Ortiz, Jason George, Grey Damon, Barrett Doss, Alberto Frezza, Jay Hayden, Okieriete Onaodowan, Danielle Savre, Miguel Sandoval and Boris Kodjoe. The story centers on the crew of Seattle’s Station 19 — the best of the best. Thanks to close quarters, and the nature of the job, the team at Station 19 has grown into a family. The roots of their relationships run deep, and not all of the action they see takes place on the streets.
The second season of Station 19 is averaging a 0.97 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5.34 million viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 8% in the demo and up by 1% in viewers. The series has seen a spike in the ratings when crossing over with fellow Thursday night occupant Grey’s Anatomy.
Compared to the 21 scripted ABC TV shows of the 2018-19 season, Station 19 ranks sixth in the demo and fourth in total viewers.
Today, Grey’s Anatomy was renewed for seasons 16 and 17. The network announced that executive producer and showrunner Krista Vernoff will oversee both Grey’s and Station 19.
“I’m thrilled to continue at the helm of ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ and I’m honored and energized by the opportunity to run ‘Station 19,’ as well. To expand upon the world Stacy McKee created, and further merge it with the world of ‘Grey’s,’ is an exciting challenge,” said Krista Vernoff, executive producer
and showrunner for “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Station 19.”
“Everyone at Shondaland is thrilled that our fans’ commitment to TGIT continues,” said Shonda Rhimes and producing partner Betsy Beers in a joint statement. “We are so proud of Krista and Pete and the work they do. Making the choice to have Krista oversee ‘Station 19’ was easy — the creativity she brings to the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ universe continues a tradition of storytelling we hold dear.”
