"New Amsterdam": NBC Renews Medical Drama's Prescription for 3 More Seasons

Created by David Schulner and well into its second season, NBC's New Amsterdam has expanded the series to not only embrace Dr. Max Goodwin's (Ryan Eggold) personal and professional struggles but also the amazing depth to the series' ensemble cast – thankfully, Bleeding Cool's resident show expert Tiffany Tchobanian has been here to make it all make sense – and now it looks like she'll have three more seasons to see how everything plays out.

Taking advantage of the Television Critics Association's (TCA) winter press event, NBC announced that the medical drama had been given a greenlight for for three more seasons – taking it through the 2022-2023 season, and putting the show in the same "deal league" as This Is Us. The series returns for the second-half of season 2 starting Tuesday, January 14th, with "Code Silver" – with a third season expected for Fall 2020.

In the wake of the ambulance crash that ended season one of "New Amsterdam," medical director Dr. Max Goodwin must grieve the death of someone close to him while continuing his commitment to solve systemic health care issues at the hospital.

Add his new responsibilities as a father and his cancer still lingering in the rear-view mirror, everyone around Max has to wonder how long he can sustain this impossible load. But, "How can I help?" is not just Max's catchphrase, it's his reason for living. As long as he's helping others, he's able to find hope in the most hopeless of places.
