There’s enough drama among Seattle’s emergency workers to cover two shows, apparently, as Station 19, a spinoff to Grey’s Anatomy, is back for its fifth season.

While Station 19 is executive produced by Shonda Rhimes, who created Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19 is the creation of former Grey’s Anatomy writer and producer Stacy McKee. The series debuted in 2018 and has run for 59 episodes thus far.

Here is everything you need to know about Station 19 season 5. 

When is the next Station 19 episode?

It’s that time of the year again. The Station 19 finale has finally approached us, and it looks like season 5 is ending with a bang. Will Andy get the charges against her dropped? Will Station 19 manage to save a bunch of kids on a school bus without exposing anyone to radioactive material? 

Find out on the season finale airing on Thursday, May 19, at 8 pm ET/PT on ABC. The all-new episode is titled “Crawl Out Through the Fallout,” and here is the synopsis: 

“Andy tracks down a witness to testify at her trial. Carina and Maya deal with a stressful situation. The crew responds to a car wreck.”

When is the Station 19 season 5 finale? 

The Station 19 season 5 finale airs on Thursday, May 19.  

What is the plot of Station 19?

Set in Seattle, Station 19 follows the lives of the men and women who work as firefighters and EMTs at the city’s eponymous firehouse. In particular, this includes Andy Herrera, who essentially grew up at the station as her dad, Captain Pruitt Herrera, was the head of the firehouse and her inspiration.

Love was in the air in the season 4 finale of Station 19, in all forms — budding, cementing and the loss of it. The episode was built around Maya and Carina’s wedding, while Jack, Dean and Travis all dealt with their own relationship issues. To sum up, Jack and Inara are ending their relationship as she moves away; Travis tells Emmett he wants to be more than friends and they kiss; Dean finally gets the courage to tell Vic how he feels, only to see her making amends with Theo. The final relationship plotline was with Andy and Sullivan, as their marriage has hit the rocks following Sullivan’s decision to push for the ousting of Bishop as firehouse chief, something Andy didn’t agree with. 

Who is in the Station 19 cast?

Station 19 has had its main cast of eight actors around since the very beginning (all episodes except in the case of Boris Kodjoe, who’s only missed a handful). Here is the principal cast and who they play: 

  • Jaina Lee Ortiz - Andy Herrera
  • Jason George - Dr. Ben Warern 
  • Grey Damon - Jack Gibson 
  • Barrett Doss - Victoria Hughes
