The first few seasons of New Amsterdam follow Dr. Max Goodwin and his team of doctors over the New Amsterdam Medical Center. Goodwin is the director who took over the hospital and did everything he could to fix the broken medical system to deliver the best medical care he could offer to patients in need while managing some of the most brilliant doctors in different fields.

In an interview with Deadline, Universal Television President Erin Underhill stressed how much she believed in the show.

When I first read the pilot script for New Amsterdam, I knew we had a winner. We cheered Max’s disruption of the status quo and applauded when he asked his patients the simple yet profound question, ‘How can I help?’ Over the last four seasons, David, Peter and our incredible cast have tackled important and thought-provoking stories that have touched on the human condition, but also made us laugh and imbued hope. We’re so proud of this series and are indebted to everyone involved in bringing New Amsterdam to life. Bravo!

President of Scripted Programming for NBCUniversal Studio Liza Katza also sang praises for the cast and crew of New Amsterdam.

The story of Max Goodwin, and his never-ending commitment to patients at New Amsterdam, has been inspiring. We’re so grateful to David Schulner, Peter Horton, and our cast and crew for their incredible dedication, talent, and collaboration.

We still do not know the official plot of New Amsterdam season5, but we got some clues from key people involved in the show. Executive Producer David Schulner dropped hints about the plot when he spoke with TV Insider.

For season 5, you want to end where you begin. I think for us, let’s go back to that energy of season 1 and look at where we started all the characters and make sure we end them in a place where they began. So for Bloom, it was about her addiction…. so her mom can’t be far behind.

How many episodes will New Amsterdam season 5 have?

New Amsterdam season 5 will be shorter than the earlier seasons, with only 13 episodes.
