Based on the book ‘Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital’ by Eric Manheimer, ‘New Amsterdam’ is a medical drama which follows the story of an earnest and dedicated doctor, Dr. Max Goodwin (played by Rayon Eggold) who’s a newly appointed medical director at one of America’s oldest public hospitals – the only one capable of treating Ebola patients, the president of USA and prisoners from Rikers Island all under one roof.
While he strives to tear down the bureaucracy and reform the institution’s derelict and outdated facilities to make way for the best health care services they’re hired to provide, the fellow doctors and staff members – well familiar with hollow promises – don’t bother to take any stock of him. Hell-bent on reinstating medical integrity at the place, Max disrupts the status quo and stop at nothing to follow his words with commendable actions turning the place around. Here’s everything you need to know about New Amsterdam Season 3. Read on.
New Amsterdam Season 3 Release Date
New Amsterdam Season 2 released on September 24, 2019, and aired its finale on 14 April 2020 with an episode titled “Matter of Seconds”, which was replaced by the scheduled episode called “Pandemic” as the events were too the actual Covid-19 pandemic. The show’s creator David Schulner later penned an emotional letter, stating the reason they shelved the original episode is due mainly to the fact that they found the show eerily blending fiction and reality amid a global pandemic. As the world was bracing for an upsurge in coronavirus victims, the decision seems befitting.
NBC has renewed the show for three additional seasons back in January this year. With Covid-19 in motion, the production will remain on hold for a little while longer. However, the entertainment industry is slowly adapting to the circumstances as the world is coping to find a new normal, and so the production is expected to start in early 2021, which means New Amsterdam Season 3 can release sometime in Summer 2021.
New Amsterdam Season 3 Cast: Who Will be in it?
The cast for New Amsterdam Season 3 comprises the original cast members including Ryan Eggold as Dr. Max Goodwin, Janet Montgomery as Dr. Lauren Bloom, Anupam Kher as Dr. Vijay Kapoor, Jocko Sims as Dr. Floyd Reynolds, Freema Agyeman as Dr. Helen Sharpe, and Tyler Labine will serve as Dr. Ignatius Frome. There hasn’t been any official addition to the cast as of this time.
New Amsterdam Season 3: What Will it be About?
In the wake of this pandemic, the show has a potential ground for paying homage to the medical and health care workers who are daily combatting like soldiers on the frontlines of the epidemic. Discussing the next chapter of the story, Schulner said, “All our plans have been blown out of the window.” He continued, “In Season 3 we have to rethink everything. Their priorities are going to change after this pandemic. I don’t think we can force storylines on a new world we’re living in — it would ring false. They’re going to change.” It’ll be interesting to see the current situation feed into the show’s hallmark storylines of injustices in the medical system and corporate greed putting monetary profits above people.
