Fans Are Still Rooting For A Grey’s Anatomy Spinoff, And Jesse Williams Is Increasing The Hype

Although Williams announced his departure beforehand, fellow lead actor Gregg Germann surprised fans when his character left to go to Boston as well.

The actor who played Dr. Jackson Avery, Jesse Williams, said farewell to Grey’s Anatomy on May 22, after 12 seasons.

When actor and director Jesse Williams announced he would be leaving Grey’s Anatomy, fans were hoping that it wasn’t true. However, once reality kicked in, all of social media was heartbroken, and begging for there to be a spin-off specifically for the character of Dr. Jackson Avery.

Williams announced his departure from the show on social media right after the May 6 episode, as the episode itself announced that his character would be moving to Boston to run the Catherine Fox Foundation.

Now, two days after Williams’ final episode, Twitter fans are still pleading for their proposed spin-off, which they say would focus on Dr. Jackson Avery’s life and a new job in Boston. Fans would also want it to include former character Dr. April Kepner, whose character is Avery’s ex-wife, and mother of his child.

Initially reports of a possible spin-off began to be shut down as rumors, but Williams changed that after an interview with TVLine, in which he stated his opinions on a possible spin-off.

“That would be a damn interesting and meaty spinoff with incredibly talented actors, in a world that I don’t see reflected in television, as far as equity in medicine and the actual role that the medical community plays in impacting our livelihoods, so there is something there,” he said. “I don’t begrudge it. So we’ll see. We’ll see.”

Sara Drew, who plays Dr. April Kepner, told US Weekly a while back that she would be interested in a spin-off as well.

“Yes! I mean, you guys, how cool would that show be?” she exclaimed. “I gotta be honest. I’ve been on Twitter, and Japril was, I think, trending worldwide all day.”

Williams’ character Jackson Avery, a doctor related to famous surgeon Harper Avery and Catherine Fox, definitely does have plenty of story to fill up his own show with. Specializing in plastic surgery, his character was also a member of the “plastic posse” with former main character Dr. Mark “McSteamy” Sloan (Eric Dane). Before his departure, Avery worked as chief of plastic surgery.

His character was introduced in season 6 as a recurring character only, but was soon promoted to a main character in season 7. Show creator Shonda Rhimes received near-immediate praise for creating the character, and Williams became a household name in the Grey’s Anatomy universe.

Although Williams announced his departure beforehand, fellow main character Dr. Tom Koracick (Greg Germann) surprised fans by going to Boston with Dr. Avery, followed by Germann announcing that he would also be leaving the show. If the spin-off were to occur, Germann would likely also be seen as a star or recurring character.

Whether these departures were timed this way on purpose or strictly a coincidence is still unclear; the actors may also simply be trying to broaden their horizons after many years on the show. Williams is set to make his Broadway debut in the revival of Take Me Out, which will start its run in 2022. He was also recently one of the producers of Two Distant Strangers, which won an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film in 2021.

Spin-off or no spin-off, though, Williams is still loved by all of the show’s fans, who have wished him nothing but the best.
