Inspired by the oldest public hospital in America, this unique medical drama follows the brilliant, charming Dr. Max Goodwin, the institution's newest medical director, who sets out to tear up the bureaucracy and provide exceptional care. How can he help? Well, the doctors and staff have heard this before. Not taking "no" for an answer, Dr. Goodwin must disrupt the status quo and prove he will stop at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed, underfunded and underappreciated hospital.
When a history-making blizzard hits New York, Max and his staff must work together to keep their patients safe with little resources, even if it means taking to the streets of the city and braving the storm.
NBC announced today that New Amsterdam has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes in the midst of the medical drama's debut run, which has been enjoying continued success after a strong start.
The new series premiered in the fall and jumped out of the gate as one of the top-rated new shows among the 2018-2019 freshman class. After just three airings, the network topped up its initial order to a full 22 episodes, making it the first fall newbie to earn a full season.
Look for Season 2 of New Amsterdam this fall as part of the 2019-2020 television season.
