The Hollywood Reporter is stating that ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ actor Jason George is joining Rosewood’s as a series regular in Shonda Rhimes’ new spinoff involving firefighters.

George will continue to be a series regular on Grey’s Anatomy season 14 until production of the spinoff begins, at which point he will focus his attention there.

The spinoff, picked up straight-to-series in May, centers on a group of heroic Seattle firefighters from the captain down the ranks in their personal and professional lives.

George joined Grey’s Anatomy as a recurring player in season six, playing Dr. Ben Warren — the eventual husband to original series star Chandra Wilson’s Miranda Bailey. He was promoted to series regular in season 12.

George’s move to the spinoff comes after Ben went full firefighter mode in May’s season-13 finale of Grey’s Anatomy in his attempts to save Stephanie (Jerrika Hinton). Stephanie would go on to leave the hospital as Hinton exited the series.

The spinoff marks George’s third Shondaland drama after Grey’s and ABC’s short-lived Hawaii-set medical drama Off the Map. The actor’s credits also include ABC’s Mistresses and Off the Map. He’s repped by APA and Morris Yorn.
