The 45-year-old actor, who plays Dr. Ben Warren in the original ABC show, will serve as a series regular in the forthcoming drama, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
George's transition to the spinoff will reportedly be "a key part" of his character's storyline in "Grey's Anatomy" Season 14, which premieres Sept. 28. He will remain a series regular on the show until the spinoff starts production.
