Station 19 season 6 is well underway, as the Seattle-based firefighter team is forced to deal with many of the ramifications of season 5 and new developments at the station and in their personal lives.

So what's going on with Andy, Bishop, Maya, Jack and the rest of the Station 19 crew? Here’s everything we know about Station 19 season 6.

When is the next episode of Station 19 season 6?

Station 19 is back with the last episode of the season, and the big question is who will be the new captain

The episode titled "Glamorous Life" airs on Thursday, May 18, at 8 pm ET/PT on ABC. Here is a synopsis of what's to come:

"The Station 19 crew trade in their turnouts for tuxes and gowns as they attend the Firefighters Ball; but when disaster strikes, they jump into action to save the day."

Check out a promo video for the episode. 

Station 19 season 6 plot

If you managed to check out our Station 19 season 5 ending explanations, then you probably noticed there were quite a few cliffhangers in the finale episode. As we previously mentioned here, Jack left. Not only did he leave the firehouse, but he quit his job which left room for Andy to be rehired. Does this mean Jack will be off the canvas of the series for a while, or is he gearing up for a journey of self-exploration that takes him on the road? 

Then there was the “unwise” threat Maya (Danielle Savre) made. In her final scenes of last season, she threatened to disclose to superiors that Robert and Natasha (Merle Dandridge) are romantically involved if Natasha didn’t reinstate her as captain. While Maya probably thinks she made a wise choice, we can’t help but think the move will have major consequences for her. 

In other season 5 finale news, Andy was on the cusp of officially being rehired at Station 19, Warren had to decide between his family and job and Travis (Jay Hayden) decided he should run for mayor. Putting this simply, season 6 has a lot of storylines to explore. 

Station 19 is proving to be quite interesting this season with the downward spirals of both Bishop and Gibson, among the top storylines.

Most of the show's core characters are returned for season 6 (viewers will recall Okieriete Onaodowan's character Dean Miller died in season 5). Since the inception of the series, Jaina Lee Ortiz has led the series playing Andy Herrera. While this may arguably be her most notable role, she’s previously starred in Rosewood as Det. Annalise Villa and in Shooter as Angela Tio.

Other actors rounding out the main cast include Jason George (Mistresses), Grey Damon (The Flash), Barrett Doss (Iron Fist), Jay Hayden (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Danielle Savre (Heroes), Boris Kodjoe (House of Cards) and Stefania Spampinato (Ford v Ferrari). 

We also expect Chandra Wilson to stop by from Grey’s Anatomy as Dr. Miranda Bailey, especially since she recently quit her job as chief of surgery.  

Merle Dandridge, Josh Randall and Pat Healy, meanwhile, have all been promoted to cast regulars. This is especially great news for those that are entertained by the tension between Maya and Natasha. 

Additionally, General Hospital’s Kelly Thiebaud is reprising her role as Eva.
