The second spin-off to Grey’s Anatomy. Set in Seattle, the series focuses on a group of heroic firefighters of the Seattle Fire Department at Station 19 from the captain down the ranks to the newest recruit in their personal and professional lives.
The show centers around Andy Herrera, who was practically raised at Seattle’s Station 19. She is a confident firefighter who is also the daughter of Pruitt Herrera, the formidable head of the firehouse. Capt. Pruitt was Andy’s primary inspiration to become a firefighter and is a mentor to both her and Jack Gibson, the lieutenant at the station. Jack is as fearless as Andy is by-the-books, but when the two are together, sparks fly and opposites attract.
The two are joined by Maya Bishop, Dean Miller, Travis Montgomery, Victoria Hughes, and the station’s newest addition, rookie Ben Warren. Ben is Miranda’s husband from Grey’s Anatomy. The team also works closely with Seattle PD, often running into Andy’s former flame Ryan Tanner.
