New Amsterdam is back for its final chapter
September 20th, 2022 under New Amsterdam. [ Comments: 9 ]

Tonight at 10p, New Amsterdam begins its final chapter on NBC. I don’t know if I cried watching the season premiere because of what happened during it or the fact that the medical drama is ending. I think it is a mixture of both.

It starts off with Max (Ryan Eggold) still reeling from Helen leaving him at the altar in the season finale. However, he loves having his old job back now that they get rid of the Wicked Witch of the West Side.

Not only is he back as the medical director of the New Amsterdam, but the show is also back to being how good it was for the first three seasons. Can we ignore last season?

Anyways, Iggy (Tyler Labine), Reynolds (Jocko Sims), and Wilder (Sandra Mae Frank) have some complex cases on their plate. And they will do their magic to help their patients. No matter how good they are as doctors, they can’t always heal the sick. But they are going to try their hardest.

And we don’t have to try to love this series because it comes naturally, just like Eggold’s facial expressions.


Freema Agyeman will not be back for New Amsterdam’s final season

The network shows are back in production. Therefore, we are finding out who will be back and who will not be.

Today, we learned that Freema Agyeman is not returning for the show’s final season as Dr. Helen Sharpe. The actress announced the news on social media.

Dearest Dam Fam.
First off I would like to say a huge heartfelt THANK YOU for your unending, dedicated and deliciously ferocious support! I feel very fortunate to have connected with so many of you, while rolling around in the skin of Ms. Helen Sharpe, and witness every ebb and flow of your emotional investment in her. What a ride! Thank you for being on it with me. She has meant so much to me, but the time has come for me to hang up her white coat, as I officially share the news that I will not be returning for the final season of New Amsterdam. While I am saddened, I am also incredibly excited to see how the story concludes as a fan of the series. It has been such a joy to play Dr. Helen Sharpe for 4 seasons – those magnificent writers built a badass! Beyond grateful for the opportunity to tell some of her stories!
Fanfic – it’s over to you to tell the rest!!
Lots of love Fam!

The news is shocking but not surprising how the medical drama ended its fourth season. Sharpe called Max to tell him that she could not go through with their wedding and that she would not be joining him in NYC.

The medical drama’s biggest mistake was sending Sharpwin to London. I don’t know what they were thinking, but that ruined the fourth season. It never made sense why Max would leave New Amsterdam for a woman.

So, I am sad that Agyemam is leaving the show, but I am not sad to see her character gone. How do you feel about her departure?


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, but where are Sharpwin?

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?


New Amsterdam’s Sharpwin are painting the town of London white

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.
