Grey’s Anatomy fan favorite Jason George set to make his return… after spending the last seven seasons on spin-off Station 19 which just came to an end

ABC’s hit drama series Grey’s Anatomy will return for Season 21 this fall, with a very familiar face making his return.

Jason George – who starred as Dr. Ben Warren on Grey’s since Season 6 – will return as a series regular, according to Deadline. 

George was a series regular on Grey’s from Seasons 12 through 14, before leaving to play the same character on the spin-off Station 19. 

Now that Station 19 has come to an end, with the series finale airing on May 31, George’s Dr. Ben Warren will be returning to Seattle Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.

The actor himself let his 1.4 million Instagram followers in on the news with a brief video post.

‘Well…it WAS kind of hush-hush. But now it’s official. Where my scrubs at?’ he said in the caption of his post, which already has over 20K likes after just three hours.

Warren’s return comes after the explosive Season 20 finale that found Ellen Pompeo’s Meredith Grey quitting the hospital after publishing her Alzheimer’s research.

Dr. Ben Warren started his career as an anesthesiologist before he became a surgical resident at Grey Sloan.

He was bumped up to a series regular in Season 12, though after Season 14, he left the show to join the spin-off Station 19, where he would change careers again.

Towards the end of his time at Grey’s, he revealed to his wife Dr. Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) that he was accepted into the Seattle Fire Academy.

He ultimately opted to leave Grey’s and become an EMT and PRT Physician at Station 19, though he would frequently return to Grey’s as a guest star.

His move to EMT also didn’t hinder his ability to go back and complete his residency, which is exactly what he’ll be doing.

Ben was a fifth-year resident when he left for his career as an EMT, and he revealed to Captain Andy Herrera (Jaina Lee Ortiz) in the Station 19 finale that he was returning to Grey’s to finish his residency.

Station 19 also featured another Grey’s transplant – Stefania Spampinato’s Carina – however there are no immediate plans for her return quite yet.

There is still the possibility that Spampinato’s Carina could return as a guest star at some point in the future. 

George has also been featured in movies such as Barbershop, Playing for Keeps, Breaking In, Indivisible and Give Me An A.

His other TV roles include Mistresses, Off the Map, Eli Stone, What About Brian?, Eve and Sunset Beach.
