Grey's Anatomy Spinoff: Jason George Joins!

at . Comments

A popular Grey's Anatomy character will be making a move from the halls of Grey-Sloane Memorial to the latest spinoff series. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jason George will appear as a series regular on the firefighter series which was announced earlier this year.

The report notes that George will remain a series regular on Grey's Anatomy Season 14 until production on the new series kicks off.

On top of that, the details surrounding his move will be revealed during Grey's Anatomy, which will introduce viewers to some of the characters during an episode of Grey's Anatomy. 

But just because he's joining the newest entry in the franchise does not mean he's leaving the parent series behind. He will apparently still appear sporadically.

Details on the untitled offshoot are scarce. We know that Rosewood's Jaina Lee Ortiz will also be a series regular.

George has appeared on Grey's Anatomy since 2010 and portrays the character of Ben Warren. The character is married to Bailey, so it makes sense that he will continue to show up here and there.  

Jason's other TV credits include Mistresses, Off the Map and Eastwick

Stacy McKee is tapped as the showrunner on the series. McKee has been part of the Grey's Anatomy family for several years and has written some of the show's biggest episodes. 

Adding another show to the franchise is a no-brainer when you consider how resilient the series is after all these years on the air. 

Grey's Anatomy Season 13 averaged 7.8 million viewers and a 2.1 rating, continuing to reign as the network's highest-rated drama series.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
