It's time to get excited about the Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff!

Are you ready for this, Grey's Anatomy fans? After months of waiting for news of the straight-to-series Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff, we find out that the new fiery series if finally filming. The Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff will revolve around the personal and professional lives of Seattle firefighters, from the chief down to the newest recruit. Are you ready for more drama in Shondaland and Grey's Anatomy? We've definitely got some feelings on this one!

First, let's get to the good news. Filming for Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff has begun and that in itself is exciting news! We're one step closer to seeing the new season. Maybe the next update will be the official Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff name. Who knows?

Anyway, Jay Hayden, who will play in the spinoff, recently posted a video on his Instagram, revealing to the world that production has finally begun for the new series.

But as with all things in life, we're not too happy about one thing about this spinoff. Our beloved anesthesiologist turned surgical resident is changing careers again. Yes. Ben Warren (Jason George) will be leaving Grey's Anatomy for the firefighter spinoff and we can't help but be a little bit upset. While we don't know how or what this means for Ben and his wife and queen of Grey Sloan Memorial, Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson), we do know that Jason is making the switch once the Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff begins filming. So, that means now.

However, George assures fans that this won't be the last time we see Ben on Grey's.

The good part is that it exists in the same universe and there will be crossovers," George says. "So the way I look at it is, I'm not leaving home for good, I'm leaving home to go to college across town. I'll still bring my laundry home every couple of weeks. It's bittersweet but I'll still see my peeps. I'm still playing on the Grey's softball team. That's not going to stop anytime soon."

That better be true! We don't want to lose Ben on Grey's!

Are you ready for the new Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff? How often do you think that Ben will be on Grey's??
