Grey's Anatomy Spinoff Adds Four to Cast: Who's In?

at . Comments

The Grey's Anatomy spinoff was announced way back in May, and details are slowly trickling out about the series which was granted a straight-to-series order. 

ABC knows being part of the Grey's brand means it is likely to have a built-in audience for whatever shows the network manages to spin from it.

A planted episode later this season on Grey's Anatomy will be sure to help get some sampling for the series. 

The latest addition to the franchise will focus on the firefighters in Seattle and how they put their lives on the line to save every civilian they can from the craziest of situations. 

According to Deadline, Grey Damon (Friday Night Lights), Okieriete Onaodowan (Broadway’s Hamilton), Danielle Savre (Too Close To Home) and Barrett Doss (Marvel’s Iron Fist) have been added as series regulars to the series.

Rosewood's Jaina Lee Ortiz was the first person to join the cast, and she previously took to Instagram to announce that filming had started on the 10-episode-series. 

It was later revealed that current Grey's Anatomy series regular Jason George was joining the spinoff as a series regular, and it left the fate of Ben Warren's relationship with Miranda Bailey up in the air. 

At the time, it was said that it was possible for him to appear in both shows.

If you watch Grey's Anatomy online, you will already know that Ben and Miranda's scenes are generally some of the show's most comical, so it would be a mistake to drive a wedge between them. 

This spinoff will mark the second entry into the Grey's Anatomy franchise. As you are probably aware, Kate Walsh took her Grey's Anatomy character, Addison Montgomery to a new location to launch Private Practice

That show lasted for six seasons and came to an end 2013.

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."

DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

CRISTINA: "There's a club. The Dead Dads Club. And you can't be in it until you're in it. You can try to understand, you can sympathize. But until you feel that loss... My dad died when I was nine. George, I'm really sorry you had to join the club."
GEORGE: "I... I don't know how to exist in a world where my dad doesn't."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, that never really changes."
