'New Amsterdam' Renewed Through Season 5
NBC announced a huge renewal today for New Amsterdam, ordering three additional seasons that will take the medical drama to Season 5. A multi-season pickup like this is rare for broadcast television, though the network did issue a similar order for its top drama This Is Us last May.
New Amsterdam stars Ryan Eggold in his first lead role in a TV series since playing Tom Keen on The Blacklist and its failed spin-off, The Blacklist: Redemption. Eggold stars as Max Goodwin, a brilliant doctor who is New Amsterdam Hospital's newest medical director. Wanting to disrupt the status quo, he sets out to bypass bureaucracy and focus on providing patients with exceptional care while dealing with his share of problems in his personal life.
