Grey’s Anatomy might be ending soon, but at least you have the spinoff Station 19 to keep you going. This firefighter-centric show, which features crossover characters from Grey’s, launched onto our small screens last year with all the drama we expect of a Shondaland creation. Now it’s time for their second season. Will there be riveting drama or will they hit the dreaded sophomore slump? You’ll just have to tune into the Station 19 season 2 premiere to find out.
But we know what you’re wondering first: Do you get answers about who survives that horrific skyscraper fire that left you reeling in the season 1 finale? Yes, executive producer Stacy McKee confirms, and they’ll address it right away in the Station 19 season 2 premiere because it shapes what comes next. “It was a heightened experience for them all,” she told TV Insider. “We’ll be examining how this event altered them.”
So while the first season was about the cast vying to see who would take over as captain, the second will give you some of their background. (But, yes, a new captain will be selected as the crew adjusts to life after the skyscraper incident.) “We’re diving into their pasts,” McKee explained, while promising more Grey’s crossovers. “We are going to mess with their love lives [and] home lives.”
