Will Jason George leave 'Grey's Anatomy?'

Jason George (Ben Warren) went on full firefighter mode in the Season 13 finale. Fans began speculating that he might leave his regular spot in "Grey's Anatomy" but there's a chance that it won't happen.

THR stressed that the latest Shondaland offering will include a different set of cast members but the production team has yet to release an update regarding this.

Dungey added, “No one can interweave the jeopardy firefighters face in the line of duty with the drama in their personal lives quite like Shonda."

ABC got a straight-to-series order for the planned project. The network will also release a planted episode on "Grey's Anatomy" Season 14 before it heads to regular programming.
