Every time we learn a little more, we can’t help but get excited all over again!

New details emerged about the long-hyped Grey’s Anatomy spinoff, and it looks like the show finally has their captain.

When we say captain, we, of course, mean fire captain. It’s been long known that this unnamed show would still be taking place in Seattle and in the existing Grey’s universe, but instead of doctors, this time we’ll be watching firefighters.

And now we have the chief. Miguel Sandoval, best known recently for his role in Medium, signed on to play Captain Pruitt, a respected and beloved leader of men. Sandoval will be joined by Jaina Lee Ortiz (Rosewood), Grey Damon (Aquarius), Barrett Doss and more. They're even stealing Jason George—better known as Dr. Ben Warren—from the hospital to star in the new show!

And there's even more good news for longtime fans of Grey’s: Shonda Rhimes, who’s been running the show since 2005, will be spearheading this new project as well. “No one can interweave the jeopardy firefighters face in the line of duty with the drama in their personal lives quite like Shonda," according to a studio rep, "and Grey's signature Seattle setting is the perfect backdrop for this exciting spinoff."

Of course, as any fan of the original series knows, Shonda has a habit of playing with fan’s emotions and absolutely destroying them with tragic surprises. You can check out some of the most traumatic scenes in Grey’s history here!

The Shooting

It's sad to say, but a show set in modern America wouldn't feel legit if there wasn't some sort of gun violence.

The Plane Crash

"Let's take 6 major characters and wreck them all in the middle of the woods.... fiiiine, we'll let some of them live, but I want to cut off a leg!" -Shonda Rhimes, probably

Ambulance Crash

Seriously, if it's big and fast and carries people, it's going to crash on this show.

The Sinkhole

It's actually terrifying that these things exist in real life. One minute you're just standing in the middle of the street, and the next...

'Perfect Storm'

That was the name of the episode. Which was fitting, seeing as they condensed a power outage, an exploding bus and and Meredith's emergency C-section all into a single season finale.

I had a rough childhood. I watched my parents murdered right before my eyes. Shot point-blank by some two-bit thug.

So I ran away from Gotham and wandered the earth, until eventually Liam Neeson found me in an obscure Asian jail. He gave me a home, taught me to fight, and showed me the true meaning of justice meant wearing black rubber latex and speaking really deeply. 

Then I killed him with a flying commuter train.
