Over the course of its three-season run on NBC, “New Amsterdam” has done fairly well. It’s a soap opera about Dr. Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold), the new medical director of New Amsterdam Hospital. He’s juggling a failing marriage, a cancer diagnosis, impending fatherhood, and workplace interpersonal issues. Dr. Goodwin is dealing with single fatherhood by the third season, which is presently airing on NBC, after losing his wife in a car accident in Season 2. On the job, he’s trying to outrun the ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In January, the show was renewed for three more seasons, bringing the total number of seasons to five (via Variety). What may Season 4 have in store for fans now that Season 3 is over? Continue reading to learn more about “New Amsterdam‘s” forthcoming third season.
What is the release date for Season 4 of New Amsterdam?
Season 3 of the show just ended earlier this month, so we don’t have a release date for Season 4 yet. Based on NBC’s preference for starting the show in the fall, the next season is anticipated to premiere in September or October 2021, depending on whether or not there are any delays due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
If that’s the case, the third season could be pushed back to March 2022 in order to incorporate all necessary safety precautions to protect the show’s cast and crew’s health. That does not appear to be the case, according to an interview with executive producer David Schulner conducted by TV Insider. The projected release date, according to the released interview, is somewhere in the fall of 2021, which should bring a sigh of relief to enthusiasts.
According to Variety, the show averages 1.7 million viewers in live ratings and 4.6 million in Live+7 views, so viewers will be eager to see what happens next for the New Amsterdam crew.
What is New Amsterdam’s storyline?
New Amsterdam follows Dr. Max Goodwin, the medical director of America’s oldest public hospital, as he defies the odds to reshape the country’s medical system. Dr. Goodwin’s and other hospital staff members’ personal lives are also explored in the episode.
After a tumultuous year, Season 4 is expected to represent a fresh start for Dr. Goodwin and his crew. “More Joy” is the title of the opening episode of the new season, in which the characters try to figure out how to rediscover and keep the joy in their life. Dr. Lauren Bloom’s connection with Dr. Leyla Shinwari, who is now her resident; Dr. Iggy Frome’s new job; and Dr. Floyd Reynold’s personal engagements are all part of this.
Dr. Veronica Fuentes, a newcomer to the hospital, has also arrived. She arrives in New Amsterdam to help turn around the hospital, which is overworked and underfunded. One of her first moves will be to cancel all of Max’s innovative programs from the first three seasons.

Dr. Max Goodwin is played by Ryan Eggold; Dr. Helen Sharpe is played by Freema Agyeman; Dr. Lauren Bloom is played by Janet Montgomery; Dr. Floyd Reynolds is played by Jocko Sims, and Dr. Iggy Frome is played by Tyler Labine. This quintet has so far appeared in every episode of New Amsterdam.
