The GREY’S ANATOMY firefighter spinoff series STATION 19 moves the action just three blocks down from Seattle Grace hospital, so it’s probably not a surprise that the crossover potential is strong.
So strong, in fact, that the first trailer for the new Shondaland drama series spoils Grey’s star Ellen Pompeo’s appearance in what is likely the first episode of the spinoff series.
Pompeo’s Meredith Grey shows up to comfort Station 19‘s leading lady, Andy Herrera, played by Jaina Lee Ortiz, after her father, Station 19’s captain, has to step down following a near-catastrophic fire rescue gone wrong.
The action-packed first trailer also teases everything a Shondaland could want from a soapy nighttime workplace drama, including the rescue of the cutest puppy ever and a love triangle already forming between Andy, fellow firefighter Chad (Grey Damon), and some guy named Ryan.
Station 19 will have a two-hour premiere on Thursday, March 22 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, before moving to its regular 9 p.m. ET timeslot, right between Grey’s and the final season of Scandal.
