New Amsterdam Season 3, is an American medical drama TV series on NBC. It is loved for its terrific cast and the storyline. The first season premiered on September 25, 2018. The show has an IMDb rating of 8.1. It is an adaptation of Eric Manheimer‘s Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital. The show shows amazing doctors who do everything in their power to save the patients. It highlights hot social issues and the laws in our healthcare system.

New Amsterdam revolves around the story of Dr. Max Goodwin who becomes the medical director of America’s one of the oldest public hospitals. He tries to break the rules to heal the healthcare system of the hospital. The show takes us along the journey to reform the neglected facility by tearing up the bureaucracy to provide the best car for the patients.
When will New Amsterdam Season 3 premiere?
In January 2020, NBC renewed the series for three seasons. So, we can breathe knowing that not only season 3 but season 4 and 5 are lined up for the show as of now. The show was scheduled to air in September 2020 but since the Coronavirus hit the world, those plans had to take a pause. The filming has not yet begun. The cast is from different parts of the world, from the UK and India as well, so putting them together and filming is a hurdle. As the restrictions regarding the shooting are opening, we can expect the show to go under roll by this year’s end. So, according to that, we can see New Amsterdam Season 3 to air in 2021.
The second season’s ending was not the one which was pre-planned. So, there are speculations that the makers may re-telecast the season’s ending. This will give a proper path for the third season to run on. Executive Producer David Schulner told TV Guide, “We can’t just pick up where we left off.” He told TV Guide that the initial ending involved the doctors going to the Dominic Republic to help out after a hurricane. So, if we get the planned ending, the third season can work on this arc. We will also see more tension between Max and Cassian over Helen.
There were quite some storylines in the second season. Iggy was working on a food addiction. Dr. Bloom was working on his relationship with his mom. But, in the wake of COVID-19, the makers want to give the season a new relatable face. Schulner said, “In Season 3 we have to rethink everything. The priorities are going to change after this pandemic. I don’t think we can force storylines on anew world we’re living in. They are going to change.”
The Cast in New Amsterdam Season 3
Daniel De Kim will be seen in the third season. Schulner said that they are not planning on casting new characters for New Amsterdam Season 3. Hence, we will see the same cast.
- Ryan Eggold as Dr. Max Goodwin
