Original Hamilton cast member Okieriete Onaodowan has been cast as a series regular in the upcoming Grey’s Anatomy spin-off that will follow a group of Seattle firefighters. This is the first major project for Onaodowan since his publicized departure from the Broadway production of Natasha, Pierre, & the Great Comet of 1812 in August.
In addition to Onaodowan, the cast will also feature recent Groundhog Day star Barrett Doss, as well as Grey Damon and Danielle Savre.
According to Deadline, the principal characters are expected to be introduced in an upcoming episode of Grey’s Anatomy.
The yet-to-be-titled spin-off will star Jaina Lee Ortiz and Grey’s cast member Jason George.
Set to premiere sometime in 2018, the 10-episode series is written written by Grey’s executive producer/co-showrunner Stacy McKee.
