"Station 19" follows a group of heroic Seattle firefighters as they put their lives and hearts on the line. The latest series from the executive producers of "Grey's Anatomy," "Scandal" and "How to Get Away with Murder" takes us inside the tough, tight-knit and sometimes heartbreaking world of the city's bravest first responders.

Season 2 of "Station 19" will return with answers to all of our burning questions. With a massive skyscraper fire raging, can Andy (Jaina Lee Ortiz) lead her team to safety? Will her former flame Jack (Grey Damon) and teammate Travis (Jay Hayden) survive after an explosion sends them both into jeopardy? And when the dust finally settles, who will win the race for the captain position at Station 19?

The second season finds our team wrestling with the fallout of the deadly blaze. The life of their former captain, Pruitt (Miguel Sandoval), hangs in the balance after major health complications. No longer a rookie, Ben (Jason George) searches for his place on the team. Maya (Danielle Savre), Vic (Barrett Doss), and Dean (Okieriete Onaodowan) are tested BEYOND their limits. And if all that wasn't enough for Andy, her complicated relationship with police officer Ryan (Alberto Frezza) grows even more complex as his path intersects with the station's.

The crew at STATION 19 will welcome a new teammate, a seasoned firefighter (Boris Kodjoe) with a mysterious past. Season 2 will also feature more crossover elements with ABC's flagship series "Grey's Anatomy." Seattle's brightest doctors will collide with Seattle's boldest firefighters in unexpected ways as they work side by side to save lives.

"Station 19" stars Jaina Lee Ortiz as Andy Herrera, Jason George as Ben Warren, Grey Damon as Jack Gibson, Barrett Doss as Victoria Hughes, Alberto Frezza as Ryan Tanner, Jay Hayden as Travis Montgomery, Okieriete Onaodowan as Dean Miller, Danielle Savre as Maya Bishop and Miguel Sandoval as Captain Pruitt Herrera.

The drama is produced by ABC Studios. Stacy McKee ("Grey's Anatomy") serves as showrunner and executive producer, along with Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers. Paris Barclay ("Pitch" and "Sons of Anarchy") serves as the producing director and executive producer of the series.
