“Those shows are on the same timeline, they exist in the same universe, they’re three blocks apart in Seattle. The pandemic exists on Station 19 as well, but it looks and feels different on Station 19 because it’s not a hospital so the protocols are different and everyone doesn’t have to be in masks and PPE all the time. It’s a little different.”
Besides, the two series will come together for a crossover premiere event.
