It’s finally here!

In an exclusive video, the cast of Shonda Rhimes’ new series Station 19 introduce the ins and outs of their characters and get candid about the training it took to represent these real-life firefighting superheroes.

“They go and face life and death situations everyday and it also involves the intricacies of that family dynamic inside that station,” says Danielle Savre, who plays Maya Bishop.

The series follows a group of heroic firefighters at Seattle Fire Station 19 as they risk their lives every day to save others. And while there’s plenty of thrilling encounters on the job, the drama off the clock is just as intriguing.

“It will have a wonderful mix of humor, romance and drama in all of the action,” says Barrett Doss, who plays Victoria Hughes.

STATION 19 - "Invisible To Me" - “Station 19,” the latest series from the executive producers of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away with Murder,” follows a group of heroic firefighters at Seattle Fire Station 19 - from captain to newest recruit - as they risk their lives and hearts both in the line of duty and off the clock. These brave men and women are like family, literally and figuratively, and together they put their own lives in jeopardy as first responders to save the lives of others.

“Station 19 is the firehouse that’s three blocks down from Grey Sloan Memorial,” says Jason George, who plays Dr. Ben Warren. “It’s a show that lives in the Grey’s Anatomy universe, but it’s definitely it’s own thing.”

In order to get into the right state (physically and mentally!), the cast went through a boot camp for two to three days, getting familiar with equipment, training, and what it takes to be a firefighter.

“It’s important to show what these people do and what it takes,” says Okieriete Onaodowan, who portrays Dean Miller.

The ABC series stars Jaina Lee Ortiz as Andy Herrera, flagship star Jason George as Ben Warren, Grey Damon as Jack Gibson, Barrett Doss as Victoria Hughes, Alberto Frezza as Ryan Tanner, Jay Hayden as Travis Montgomery, Okieriete Onaodowan as Dean Miller, Danielle Savre as Maya Bishop, and Miguel Sandoval as Captain Pruitt Herrera.

Station 19 will have a two-hour premiere at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday and then will shift to its regular 9 p.m. slot. Scandal will then shift to 10 p.m. for its final run, with a series finale on April 19.

Toys “R” Us founder Charles Lazarus passed away Thursday at 94, the company confirmed in a statement. The news comes the same month the toy company announced it would close or sell all of its stores in the United States,

The once iconic retailer can trace its beginnings to 1948, when Lazarus opened a baby furniture store in Washington D.C. when he was just 25.

But as the company notes in a profile of its history, Lazarus quickly realized that what was drawing the most attention wasn’t the furniture, but the toys. The young entrepreneur then had an idea that was radical at the time—he would create a store that sold toys, and only toys. In 1957, Lazarus opened the first Toys “R” Us store, and changed the way families across the country shopped for their children during the holiday season and beyond. Lazarus guided the chain as it expanded and became one of America’s preeminent shopping destinations, until he stepped down as CEO in 1994.

In a statement, a Toys “R” Us spokesperson confirmed the death of the company founder.

“There have been many sad moments for Toys ‘R’ Us in recent weeks, and none more heartbreaking than today’s news about the passing of our beloved founder, Charles Lazarus,” the statement obtained by PEOPLE reads. “He visited us in New Jersey just last year and we will forever be grateful for his positive energy, passion for the customer and love for children everywhere.”

The statement continues: “Our thoughts and prayers are with Charles’ family and loved ones.”

After seven decades, the toy retailer announced earlier this month that it is closing down or selling all of its 735 stores in the United States. The store held on to hope it would be able to rebuild its brand when it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last year after accumulating more than $5 billion in debt. But with competition from the likes of Amazon and Walmart the company’s future was already in the cards.

“Walmart had a better online experience,” industry analyst Jim Silver told CNN. “Target had a better online experience… They lost online and they didn’t adapt.”

She’s almost here! Keep up with all the latest on Khloé Kardashian’s pregnancy as we count down the days until her daughter’s big arrival.

Mom-to-be Khloé Kardashian is over the moon about her daughter on the way, but she couldn’t help feeling a little let down at first.

A source tells PEOPLE that the 33-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was initially “disappointed” to learn she and boyfriend Tristan Thompson wouldn’t be having a son together.

“She really wanted a boy and that’s what she was expecting,” says the insider. “She was definitely disappointed, but is also so happy that God provided her with this gift.”

The source adds that while Kardashian “plans to keep things private for a bit,” she will “share when she’s ready” and “hasn’t decided on a full plan” yet.

“When you have your mind made up as to what you’re having … everyone told me you’re going to feel what you’re having and you’ll just kind of know,” she said. “I just was convinced that I was having a boy, so to be having a girl it’s just like, ‘Okay that wasn’t what I thought was going on.’ ”

“A man is much more attached to a girl,” Kris Jenner told her daughter, prompting Khloé to respond, “Totally, and I know Tristan will be in love and I’ll be in love and she’ll be so cute.”

“This will be the love of his life, no offense to you, but this will be the love of his life,” said Kris, 62.

“Well, then I’m going to get jealous. I’m jealous,” Khloé joked. “Well, then I don’t like that. I don’t like her.”

“Don’t be a bitch!” Kris chided.
