Grey's Anatomy Firefighter Spinoff Name

A ton of fans are asking what the name of the Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff is. Unfortunately, we don't know what the name is yet, but after hearing how many times Shondaland changed the name of Grey's Anatomy, we're willing to hold out for the perfect name for the Grey's firefighter spinoff!

Grey's Anatomy Firefighter Spinoff Air Date

So, you might be wondering when the Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff will air. Well, when we first found out that Grey's was getting another spinoff show, we learned that the spinoff's pilot episode would be planted into an episode of Grey's Anatomy.

However, in a recent interview in The Seattle Times with ABC Studios president, Patrick Moran, we learned that the original plan was scrapped. So, there won't be a firefighter-centered backdoor pilot episode during Grey's Anatomy Season 14.This means that we'll have to wait even longer for the firefighter spinoff debut.

Grey's Anatomy Firefighter Spinoff Cast

Who will star in the Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff? While we don't have a complete cast list yet, there are two confirmed actors for the spinoff.

In July, the firefighter spinoff found its first cast member, Jaina Lee Ortiz. We also believe that she will be the show's female lead.

The next cast member was much more shocking to Grey's Anatomy fans. But, surprise, surprise! Anything can happen in Shondaland. It looks like Ben Warren (Jason George) will be leaving Grey's Anatomy to join the firefighter spinoff. He will continue to be a series regular on Grey's until the spinoff starts production.

How Did Jason George (Ben Warren) Land His Role In The Grey's Anatomy Firefighter Spinoff?

According to George, he thought he was in trouble when he received the news.

"It was a phone call," George recalled. "I was nervous when Shonda gave me the call. I was like, ‘I'm in trouble. What did I do?' I was trying to think if I dropped a secret some place. I was thinking, ‘The finale had a fire. I didn't die in that fire, could there still be a fire? Is this a call where I'm dropped off of something?' But it was all good news."

Will Ben Warren And Miranda Bailey Break Up Because Of The Firefighter Spinoff?

While we're happy for George and his role on the spinoff, we can't help but worry about Bailey and Ben's relationship in Season 14 and the future.

But, George reassured fans, saying that "there will definitely be crossovers between Grey's and the spin-off show... I think kind of along the lines of what happened with Private Practice and Grey's. Bailey can come home and fall into bed, and there's Ben, and they can talk about their day. Or Ben comes home from fighting fires all day and falls into bed, and there's Bailey."
