Grey's Anatomy Spinoff: Title Announced!

at .  Updated at . Comments

The Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff officially has a title!

The network confirmed on Thursday that the new drama series will be titled Station 19. 

If you were playing along with us, that's not too far off from one of the titles we at TV Fanatic predicted!!

It makes sense, but it's not quite Blaze Anatomy. Maybe ABC wanted to set the title apart from the parent series in an attempt to bring in viewers who do not watch the mothership series. 

As previously reported, Station 19 will debut with a two-hour debut Thursday, March 22 and will unspool one episode in the 9/8c ever week for the rest of its first season. 

Scandal will move an hour later to accommodate the new series. Having the Grey's Anatomy lead-in will likely give it the best chance of being a success.

The offshoot will star Jaina Lee Ortiz as Andy Herrera, Grey Damon as Lieutenant 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.

Meanwhile, Grey's Anatomy star Jason George will move over to the spinoff as Ben Warren. The news was announced late last year. 

If you watch Grey's Anatomy online, you will already know that Ben's wife, Bailey, was not impressed when he revealed all about his aspirations of becoming a firefighter. 

The series hails from Shonda Rhimes' Shondaland and will be penned by Stacy McKee. 

ABC gave the show a straight-to-series order last May with a 10 episode order. 

Over to you, TV Fanatics!
