Station 19 Season 4 spoilers
Station 19 follows a group of heroic Seattle firefighters as they put their lives and hearts on the line.
The series arrived thanks to a backdoor pilot in Season 14 of Grey’s Anatomy.
That was “You Really Got a Hold on Me,” where the Station 19 firefighters brought in two young boys to the hospital, where Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) meets Andy (Jaina Lee Ortiz), a firefighter, who has her hand inside the patient, clamping his abdominal aorta.
Season 4 of Station 19 “gets hit with a pandemic,” showrunner Krista Vernoff recently told TVLine. While this is pulled from the headlines, Vernoff promises that the season won’t go dark.
She calls the pandemic “ironic because we still have a lighter season planned.” This follows a very dark Season 3 of Station 19.
Last season, Vernoff admitted, “there was some real darkness last season — so much death. This season, the team pulls together and finds a lot of joy despite the heaviness of the world.”
Season 3 was also one of the few major network dramas that actually finished its season before the coronavirus pandemic shut things down worldwide.
In Season 4, there will also be more of the relationship between Andy and Robert. It also sounds like it might turn out better than the end of Season 3 made it look.
“They’ve both been through a hell of a lot. But I’m rooting for them,” Vernoff said.
