Grey's Anatomy Firefighter Spinoff Premiere Date & Time, Spoilers, And...
Let's talk about everything we know about the Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff so far!
Everything We Know About Grey's Anatomy Firefighter Spinoff So Far
Grey's Anatomy Season 14 was jam-packed with exciting plot twists, including the departure of Nathan Riggs (Martin Henderson), and the premiere of the 300th episode special. And we're already anticipating its return in January 2018. But, we're also excited about the Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff announced in the fall. Now, it looks like things are finally coming together with the Grey's spin-off, and hopefully, we'll be seeing more of the Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff premiere! But, for those of you who can't wait for the premiere, here's everything you need to know about the Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff so far! And with our first official sneak peek, we're so beyond excited!
When Does The Grey's Anatomy Firefighter Spinoff Premiere?
Sadly, there is no official word yet for the exact date and time the Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff will premiere. We recently learned that the first episode of the spin-off will not be planted into an episode of Grey's Anatomy season 14 as a backdoor pilot.
However, Entertainment Weekly speculates that the Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff will still likely air in an episode of Grey's in March before making its debut in the spring. So, will we be seeing the firefighter spin-off air on Thursdays as part of #TGIT? Seeing as Scandal is coming to an end after this season, this might actually happen. Regardless, come back to this page! We'll keep you posted on the premiere date for the Grey's firefighter spinoff premiere!
Is Ben Warren Leaving Grey's Anatomy For The Firefighter Spinoff?
While we love Ben Warren (Jason George) on Grey's, it looks like we're going to have to let him go. Luckily, we can see him on the new firefighter spinoff! He will continue to be a series regular on Grey's Season 14 until the firefighter spinoff starts filming, and seeing as it has that started back in October, we're expecting Ben's departure sometime in the second part of Season 14. But, that doesn't mean that he will be leaving for good. We'll see him back at Grey Sloan every so often!
Will Miranda Bailey And Ben Warren Still Be Together In The Firefighter Spinoff?
There has been a lot of speculation going around, but it looks like Ben and Miranda Bailey's (Chandra Wilson) relationship is on the rocks. While fans have bittersweet feelings about Ben going off to the firehouse, we will be absolutely torn if Ben and Bailey break up. Sadly, George revealed that a Bailey and Ben breakup is "a genuine possibility" because "nothing lasts forever." Was anyone else gutted? But, we're just going to have to wait and see!
What Is The Name Of The Grey's Anatomy Firefighter Spinoff?
While fans and the spinoff's crew have jokingly called the Grey's spinoff "Blaze Anatomy", the show is still unnamed. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Stacy McKee said, "We don’t have a name. You should see the bulletin board in my office. We have hundreds of Post-its on it with possible names. It’s pretty fantastic."

Will There Be A Grey's Anatomy / Firefighter Spinoff Crossover?
It's looking like a yes on that one. Since we're going to see Ben at both the firehouse and Grey Sloan Memorial, a crossover episode is inevitable. Also, if you take a look at the photo above, you'll see Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) in the company of the Grey's firefighter spinoff's lead, Andy Herrera!
McKee also believes in the potential of more crossovers between the two shows.
"We just finished shooting the pilot, so we’ll see what the crossover potential is. There’s so much, which is so great," McKee said. "The worlds are so rich. Because they coexist, we have the option to do it just a little or a lot. We’re open to all of those possibilities. There’s just a tremendous amount of cross-pollination that could happen. I can’t tell you how many times I would walk into the Grey’s writers’ room and would pitch some crazy, amazing patient story, and everyone would be like, “Yeah, that’s great, Stacy, but all of the cool parts of that happens off-screen. We have to treat them once they get into the hospital.” Now, with this show, I get to do all of that off-screen stuff, so to me, the possibilities for cross-pollination are limitless, because what if we could just do it all if we want?"
We're hoping that EW is correct in the spinoff's backdoor pilot this March!
Will Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) Or Other Grey's Anatomy Stars Be On The Firefighter Spinoff?
Maybe! While we're pretty sure that we'll see a crossover episode occasionally, will we see our favorite Grey's stars on the spinoff? It's very possible! We're hoping that Shondaland uses this opportunity to explore characters in different spaces. However, we certainly hope that none of our other favorite doctors jump ship to the firefighter spinoff from Grey's Anatomy. If it happens again, we're not sure we could take it! Could you?
That was A LOT! Are you excited about the Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff, Grey's fan?!
Grey's Anatomy Season 14 returns to ABC every Thursday at 8|7c on January 18!
