ABC confirms renewal of Station 19
Earlier this year, ABC Entertainment confirmed the renewal of Station 19 for its season four. The network shared that they can’t wait to deliver more great stories to their passionate audience. The news is unsurprising for viewers as the spinoff series received its most-watched season during its third run.
Moreover, ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke complimented Station 19’s showrunner. Burke stated,
“Krista Vernoff is a sharp, superb storyteller and we’re so grateful to her, along with the talented cast and crew, for all they’ve done to make Station 19 thrive this season.”
Station 19 halts production due to COVID-19 pandemic
Although the series has already been renewed, there is no certainty about its release date due to the ongoing pandemic. As a matter of fact, Boris Kodjoe, who plays Robert Sullivan revealed that he doesn’t know when they’re going back to work.
Kodjoe further explained,
“It’s about safety. For a lot of these Hollywood studios, liability’s a huge issue so when you have two or 300 people on a stage working on a movie or on a TV show, the risk of infection is huge and plus, you cannot quarantine them 24/7.”
The release date for Station 19 season four may be up in the air. However, it is definite that the writers will cook up a few storylines that will make the hiatus worthwhile.
