If Station 19 gets a third season, there will be at least one thing different.

Following the end of filming for season 2, creator Stacy McKee has stepped down as showrunner for the Grey's Anatomy spin-off.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, it was McKee's decision as she looks to "move on in a new direction".

The future of the show at ABC is uncertain, but The Hollywood Reporter notes that a renewal is "expected".

Danielle Savre, who plays Maya Bishop, recently told Digital Spy that she was optimistic about the chances of a season 3.

"It's this weird kind of thing where you feel in your gut and your heart that [the show has to be renewed] because it just works so well. It's a well-oiled machine. I hope it does," she said.

"I can try to analyse all the ratings and numbers, but at the end of the day, I don't make those decisions. It's way above my pay grade. The fans love our show and are so passionate about watching it that I think they'd be silly not to [renew] but I don't get to make that decision."

Next week in the US will see the show cross over with Grey's Anatomy, as one of the Station 19 crew is urgently rushed into Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.

Station 19 airs on ABC in the US and on Sky Witness in the UK.
