Since its backdoor pilot in Grey’s Anatomy season 14, spin-off Station 19 has proven to be enough of a hit for ABC to renew it for a second season just before its explosive season one finale.
The show follows a group of firefighters of the Seattle Fire Department at Station 19 who were introduced in Grey’s Anatomy episode ‘You Really Got a Hold on Me’ after they rescued two young boys from a house fire, with the first Station 19 episode following three weeks later.
With the show now established as part of ABC’s Thursday night fall schedule after Grey’s Anatomy, what can we expect from season two?
Station 19 season 2 release date: When can we expect it?
Season one premiered on March 22, 2018 on ABC in the US, but we don’t have to wait until March 2019 for season two as it’s been confirmed to launch on Thursday, October 4.
Sky Living airs Station 19 in the UK and launched the first season around a month after the US on April 18, so hopefully it’ll follow the US and premiere season two when it launches Grey’s Anatomy season 15.
Station 19 season 2 cast: Who’s coming back?
At the moment, we genuinely have no idea as the season one finale left pretty much every character in danger as they battled a skyscraper fire.
Apart from Ryan Tanner (Alberto Frezza) and Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) who are back at the station trying to revive Pruitt Herrera (Miguel Sandoval), everyone else is in peril as another blast shook the building at the end of the finale.
Victoria Hughes (Barrett Doss) is fighting the fire with Maya Bishop (Danielle Savre), Dean Miller (Okieriete Onaodowan) is stuck in an elevator, Ben Warren (Jason George) is in a stairwell with a bleeding Travis Montgomery (Jay Hayden), and Andrea ‘Andy’ Herrera (Jaina Lee Ortiz) is worrying about Jack Gibson (Grey Damon) who has stopped communicating.
We can’t imagine there will be a large-scale cull of the cast, but we’re not ruling out at least one or two major exits.
There will be at least one new face around though as Code Black and The Last Man on Earth star Boris Kodjoe has joined the show as a seasoned firefighter with a mysterious past.
“His character returns to the Seattle Fire Department after some time away and brings with him new skills, new perspectives and an approach to the job that doesn’t always fall in line with the members of Station 19,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Station 19 season 2 crossover: Will we see any Grey’s Anatomy characters?
During the network’s upfronts presentation, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey hinted at more crossovers with Grey’s Anatomy in season two. “We are looking at more dynamic interplay between the 8 and 9 o’clock hours,” she teased.
What that turns out to be remains to be seen, but Station 19 showrunner Stacy McKee previously teased after the crossovers in the two-hour season premiere that there would be future crossovers in “small ways and big ways and all sorts of ways”.
And given Dungey’s tease, maybe we could also see the crossover go the other way and have Station 19 characters pop up again in Grey’s Anatomy.
Star Jason George pretty much confirmed as much back in June. “I feel like we’ve barely scratched the surface of Grey’s world interacting with the Station 19 world and vice versa – that’s just getting started,” he hinted.
Stream Station 19 S1 weekly on NOW TV.
