It’s a week of premieres, so where is Station 19 Season 3? Why isn’t the show back in the hour after Grey’s Anatomy? Here’s what’s going on.

This week is known as “premiere week” in the world of TV. The majority of primetime shows are back. There’s always the odd show that is held off, like SEAL Team or The Blacklist, but for the most part, all the top four network shows are back. So, where’s Station 19 Season 3?

You’ve likely tuned in in the hour after Grey’s Anatomy or you’ve continued watching and you’ve found a different show is airing its premiere. A Million Little Things has returned in the post-Grey’s slot. And all you’re thinking is, “what the hell?”

More from ABC

I get it! Unfortunately, ABC made a decision during the May Upfronts that Station 19 wouldn’t return as a fall show this season. Instead, A Million Little Things would keep the post-Grey’s Anatomy timeslot that fared it well in the midseason.

Watch Station 19 on Hulu.

So, when is Station 19 Season 3 going to premiere? Right now, we don’t have an answer for that. All we know is that it will be sometime in 2020. This could be in March, which is when the series premiered in 2018 and often works with ABC’s schedule. There’s a chance that ABC will want to run through the whole of A Million Little Things Season 2 (there are 17 episodes) before bringing back the firefighter drama.

Why the change to the schedule? This doesn’t mean there’s a risk to Station 19 at all. It could be that ABC feels the midseason schedule works better for the show. It could also be linked to the fact that Krista Vernoff has taken over as showrunner, and she’s already running the show on Grey’s Anatomy. Yes, other showrunners manage multiple shows at a time but that doesn’t mean everyone can or wants to!

Whatever the reason, we’re waiting a little longer for Station 19 to return.
