There could be more Japril in our future! Although Jesse Williams announced his departure from Grey's Anatomy On May 6, his co-star Sarah Drew is hoping for a spin-off show between her two characters. Drew left the show in 2018, but during the final episode of Grey's AnatomyJackson Avery and April Kepner, the recurring couple, got back together and prepared fans for a hopeful future.
Following Thursday's episode, Jackson decides to leave Gray Sloan Memorial Hospital to take on starting his family in Boston, with an emphasis on establishing racial justice in medicine. April decides to go with him with his daughter Harriet. While filming, Drew remembered the crew expecting her and Williams to work on a spin-off when they were seen together on set. That sparked an idea for her. "It feels like it is preparing for a really great trip," she said Us Magazine. “And I said, 'I know.' How amazing and necessary is a show about racial justice in the medical field and inequality and equality. How amazing would that be?
"I have to say I was so excited when I saw the episode last night because Jesse Williams just fucking killed it. His passion for all of this stuff comes through so beautifully and brilliantly in his performance," continued Drew away. "But I kept thinking, 'How cool would this couple be? They work from the position of having the money and power to make this change happen. And they work with people who are homeless, and she does so in her own way too. "Those two could change the world of medicine, right? I would watch this show."
