New Amsterdam’s 5th season will be its last
March 14th, 2022 under New Amsterdam. [ Comments: none ]

The first two seasons of New Amsterdam did so well in the ratings that NBC gave it a 3 season pickup. However, as the show went on, the viewers didn’t stay with it. Because of that, NBC decided that the 5th season will be its last, according to Deadline. To make matters worse for the fans, like me, who stayed with the medical drama that stars Ryan Eggold, the final season will only be 13 episodes.

While I am not happy with NBC’s decision, I understand why they did. Whoever came up with the idea to have Max (Eggold) leave the hospital to follow love, made a bad decision. It turned the one medical show that was unlike all the other ones and made it like Grey’s Anatomy and Chicago Med. I have to admit, I have been struggling to watch it this season because they took the heart out of New Amsterdam.

New Amsterdam is back on NBC tonight at 10p, but are Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) and Helen Sharpe (Freema Agyeman) back in the hospital in NYC, or are they in London?

The episode takes place a few weeks after the fall finale, and Sharpwin are in London. They are adjusting to their new lives there and trying to figure things out. Some days will be challenging, but they have each other.

Back at New Amsterdam, things are not going well. Now that Max is gone, Dr. Veronica Fuentes (Michelle Forbes) is making a lot of changes to the hospital. One of those changes is cost-cutting, and our favorite doctors are being hit hard. Therefore, one doctor decides to start a rebellion. However, the other doctors aren’t interested. How much can they endure before they say they have had enough.

I also wonder, how long until fans say the same thing? I fear if Sharpwin don’t return to NYC soon, the fans will be leaving the show. I hate to say it, but I might be one of them.

They completely changed the show’s dynamic by not having Max run the hospital, and that was the whole premise for the show. There better be a good reason for this storyline, or fans will be tuning. At least, I will be. How do you feel about the change?

If you are like me and were hoping that Dr. Sharpe and Dr. Goodwin would not get on that plane to London at the end of the midseason finale of New Amsterdam, then I have some bad news for us.

NBC posted some photos from New Amsterdam’s January 4th episode, and it is of Ryan Eggold and Freema Agyeman in London. So all hopes of them returning to the hospital seem to be dashed for now.

But at least, we are going to see them get hot and heavy with some paint, so that is some compensation. Not much, but some.

New Amsterdam starts the year off with a bang

New Amsterdam is back on NBC tonight at 10p, and they are literally starting the season off with a bang. As in, someone is blowing up wards in the hospital. That is not the only thing heating up in this episode, so is Max (Ryan Eggold) and Helen’s (Freema Agyeman) relationship.

Before we get to that, because that is all you want to know, let’s talk about the person who is setting off bombs in New Amsterdam. No one knows who this mystery person is, but they need to find him fast. Therefore, Iggy (Tyler Labine) goes to a dark place to get insight into who might be doing this. Is he mentally up for doing this after all he went through in the season finale with the patient who became dangerously obsessed with him?

Meanwhile, Bloom (Janet Montgomery) is obsessed with her new girlfriend. So much so, she tells all of the new ED residents, which includes her lover (Shiva Kalaiselvan), that they are dating. How will that reveal affect Leyla Shinwari’s residency?

I guess now I can tell you about Helax. They are still together, but she wants to leave NYC and be closer to her family. She has an offer overseas, and Max is going to do everything he can to make their love affair work. How far will they go? That will be answered in the final seconds of the show.

I forgot how much I loved this show until I watched this episode. I watch almost all of the medical dramas on broadcast TV, and this one is by far the best. If you are not watching, now is an excellent time to start.


Two medical dramas are adding doctors

Last season, several doctors checked out some of the medical dramas they were on. Their departure makes room for new medical professionals.

Over in Seattle on Grey’s Anatomy, Peter Gallagher checks in as Dr. Alan Hamilton, who knew Ellis Grey (Kate Burton) back in the day, according to Variety. It sounds like now we know how they are going to incorporate the late Ellis Grey back into the series.

Meanwhile, over on the other side of the country in Manhattan, New Amsterdam is getting a new surgeon. Sandra Mae Frank is playing Dr. Elizabeth Wilder, a deaf surgeon. Like her character, Frank is also hearing-impaired.

We will see both actors debut in the season premieres of their series. The ABC drama returns on September 30th, and the NBC one is back on the 21st.
