The firefighter drama will be back for Season 2.
May 11, 2018
ABC announced today that Station 19 has been picked up for a second season. The move comes as the network is shoring up its lineup for the 2018-2019 season.
A spin-off of Grey's Anatomy, the drama premiered in March; first as a backdoor pilot that was part of its parent series' season, then later in the month in its own time slot. The show is currently nine episodes into its 10-episode run, with the season finale set for Thursday, May 17.
The hour-long series follows the crew at Seattle Fire Station 19, where everyone from the captain to the rookies puts their hearts and lives on the line regardless of whether they are on duty or off the clock. These heroic men and women are like a big family, and together they risk their lives as first responders in order to save others.
I watched one episode of Station 19 and that was enough-along with seeing Shonda Rhimes' name in the credits (sorry, but her shows are largely trash) in the credits-to tell me this show isn't going to be worth much. No comparison to Chicago Fire whatsoever.
If you get beyond the plot holes, the dialog is terrible and not realistic.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate it as a minus 5. ABC should dump this dog.
