Station 19 is the second spinoff of ABC’s hit drama Grey’s Anatomy.

The firefighter spinoff turned up the heat in a big way by launching as an extension of the iconic medical drama.

With soapy plots, sexy relationships, and everything you’d expect from a show set in that universe, it’s been a lot of fun to watch as a viewer.

Now that Station 19 is gearing up for its big comeback for Season 7, it’s time to look at what’s on the horizon.

Hint: There’s a lot.

Scroll down for all the latest intel on this beloved drama.

Station 19 Season 7 renewal status

Station 19 landed an official pickup for Season 7 back in April 2023.

At the time, the renewal was considered a no-brainer.

Station 19 was one of the network’s most-watched series in live plus same-day results.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t hold up quite as well with delayed viewing factored in, with many ABC series overtaking it by quite a margin.

Still, ABC understood that Station 19 was an important series on its schedule, and fans were rewarded with a renewal.

Will Station 19 end with Season 7?

While it seemed like Station 19 would continue for as long as it continued to be a success story, ABC stunned fans and those who cover all things TV by canceling the series in December 2023.

Yes, the final season will still see the light of day, but the show will cease to exist after that.

Given the strong ratings, it’s been a bitter pill for fans, but the decision likely comes down to the network’s plan to have lower-cost programming.

The budget of scripted series spirals out of control as they age due to cast salaries and license fees.

That wouldn’t be a problem at one point, but the TV ad market and diminished ratings across the board make it more difficult for shows to become profitable.

International sales are a significant factor here, too, and the sad reality is that Station 19 isn’t as well known as many other successful broadcast dramas outside the U.S., meaning it doesn’t bring in as much money.

The decision to end the show isn’t very good for fans because instead of a full final season, we’re getting 10 episodes.

This is thanks to the dual Hollywood strikes that meant production on the season couldn’t resume until late 2023.

There’s also a chance that the first episodes of the season have been written without a conclusion in mind, meaning that we might be in for a rush job of a final season.

The series has an expansive cast, and it’s hard to believe it’ll be able to do the characters justice here.

With Grey’s Anatomy set to chug along for years, there is a glimmer of hope that some characters will move over when Station 19 concludes.

When will Station 19 Season 7 premiere?

Station 19 will premiere on Thursday, March 14, 2024.

Unfortunately, the final season is being banished to the 10/9c time period on the night.

The series has spent the last few years kicking off ABC’s Thursday primetime line-up, but the network doesn’t seem to care much about the show nowadays.

ABC is putting its marketing muscle behind 9-1-1, which it picked up from FOX last year.

9-1-1 will lead into Grey’s Anatomy. Will there be audience crossover, or will this decision diminish ratings for all three shows on the night?

Station 19 cast: Who’s in?

With the series coming to a close, knowing who will be along for the ride is important.

Jaina Lee Ortiz will be back to headline the cast as Andy Herrera, alongside Jason George as Dr. Ben Warren, Grey Damon as Jack Gibson, Barrett Doss as Vic Hughes, and Jau Hayden as Travis Montgomery.

We can also look forward to seeing Danielle Savre as Maya Bishop, Boris Kodjoe as Robert Sullivan, Stefanie Spampinato as Carina DeLuca, Carlos Miranda as Theo Ruiz, Josh Randall as Sean Beckett, and Merle Dandridge as Natasha Ross.

There will also likely be several Grey’s Anatomy cast members along for the ride because both shows are interconnected.

Station 19 Season 7 plot details

ABC is keeping the Station 19 Season 7 plot under wraps for now.

It makes sense because the creatives have to pull double duty to craft a truncated season that features a payoff for the characters, but we can draw some conclusions.

Station 19 killed off Michael Dixon in the previous finale, taking one of the show’s biggest enemies out of the equation.

That means there’s an opening for a new antagonist in the drama’s final episodes.

Then again, this series tends to rely too heavily on soapy conventions, so we’d be happy with no villain and decent storytelling for the other characters.

We don’t ask for much, but we want a conclusion befitting of the show and its legacy.

Many spinoffs don’t last, but Station 19 set itself apart from Grey’s Anatomy.

Station 19 Season 7 premieres on March 14 at 10/9c on ABC.
