Is Max Goodwin leaving New Amsterdam? Read here
Max Goodwin is a well-loved doctor and the current medical director at New Amsterdam Hospital. Recently, he’s been plagued with rumours that he will be leaving the show.
The speculation began after actor Ryan Eggold, who plays the role of Max Goodwin, was seen filming for a new show for NBC. This has caused much speculation about whether he will be leaving the show.
Is Max Goodwin Leaving New Amsterdam?
The first clue that Max Goodwin might be leaving New Amsterdam came from the show’s executive producer, David Schulner. In an interview with TV Line, he hinted that Max could be leaving the show at the end of the current season.
He said, “Max is a charming, brilliant doctor but he’s also [at a] crossroads. He’s been living in the hospital for so long, and it’s time for him to explore who he is and what he wants to do.”
In another interview with Deadline, Eggold denied the rumours of his departure. He said that he is excited to continue exploring the character of Max and to continue seeing the various stories and storylines that are still to come.
“Over the course of the day I saw how hard he worked to save one life,” Luna recalls in an auditorium speech, which is eerily reminiscent of Max. “And how hard everybody worked, together. And that’s when I realized that New Amsterdam didn’t take my father away from me. This hospital gave me my father. Showed me who he was, and who I could be. And that’s the day I realized I wanted to be just like him. It was the day I realized I wanted to be a doctor. So I wanted to start by asking all of you the same thing my father asked his staff every hour of every single day: How can I help?”
Series creator David Schulner tells NBC Insider that the exciting twist idea first came to him from his daughter during a breakfast conversation.
“I was like, ‘OK, 11-year-old daughter. Leave the writing to me,'” he jokes. ” ‘Eat your cereal.’ And I totally blew it off. Then, a week later, Laura Valdivia, one of our writers, pitched me the same ending. And so I was like, ‘Oh, OK, I’m ‘gonna listen to you ’cause I pay you to come up with ideas.’ And then a week later, [writer] Erika Green and I were sitting on set and she said, ‘Call me crazy, but what if Luna came back as medical director in the finale?’ So, just over three weeks, something was in the air that was just pointing the arrow there.”
However, despite Eggold’s denial, the speculation persists. Fans have noted that the actor’s contract is up at the end of the current season, and with rumours that he might be leaving New Amsterdam, it could be a sign that the show is coming to an end.
At this point, fans can only wait and see what will happen with Max Goodwin. Although the rumours of his departure are still swirling, there has been no official confirmation from NBC. Either way, fans will be sad to see Max go, but hopeful for whatever the future holds for him.
