ABC has given a straight-to-series order for another Grey’s Anatomy spin-off.

The network has given a straight-to-series order to a spin-off set in a Seattle firehouse, ABC announced Tuesday.

The untitled Shonda Rhimes drama will be centered on a group of heroic firefighters, from the captain down to the newest recruit, following the brave men and women as they risk their lives and their hearts — both in the line of duty and off the clock.

The spin-off will launch out of an episode of Grey’’ Anatomy — the timing of the announcement is curious as the penultimate episode of the flagship ended with a big explosion at the hospital.

“No one can interweave the jeopardy firefighters face in the line of duty with the drama in their personal lives quite like Shonda, and Grey’s signature Seattle setting is the perfect backdrop for this exciting spin-off,” said ABC chief Channing Dungey.

Stacy McKee (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder) will write the script and executive produce with Rhimes and Betsy Beers.
