New Amsterdam is a tv series that is based on the book by Eric Manheimer, which is named Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital. It first made its debut in 2018, and upon its release, the show was given average reviews by the critics that didn’t like many things about like its story and mostly the characters. There are a total of 4 seasons of the show, and the fourth one ended recently in May. The reception for it was very bad as the other seasons, but the show is still going on as it was renewed by NBC for a fourth and a fifth season simultaneously in January 2020.
This came as a surprise to many that the show was renewed for this many seasons. Nevertheless, it was most likely due to the dedication of the fans as they have invested such a high amount of time in the show. Furthermore, the fifth season of the show will be its final season, this was unveiled in March of this year, and it will consist of 13 episodes. The details on the upcoming season are still unknown, but the production will most likely begin in 2023 with Peter Horton, David Schulner, Kate Dennis, David Foster, Michael Slovis, Shaun Cassidy, and Aaron Ginsburg serving as the executive producers for it.
New Amsterdam Season 5 Plot
For those who don’t know, New Amsterdam follows the story of Dr. Max Goodwin, who becomes the medical director of a public hospital which is one of the oldest public hospitals in the United States. Goodwin’s goal is to reform the entire system of the hospital, which he intends to do so is by tearing its bureaucracy apart and providing care for his patients.
It is a pretty good plot, ok, paper, but the execution is very bad as seeing the reviews and the fanbase also criticizing many aspects of the fourth season. But hopefully, with the fifth season, the story will get better, and we have a chance to redeem itself. The plot points of the show are unknown as the products haven’t even started yet, but by the looks of the fourth season, the fifth season’s plot will have lots of ups and down in it.
New Amsterdam Season 5 Cast Members
As for the cast, the fifth season will most likely consist of Ryan Eggold as Dr. Max Goodwin, Freema Agyeman as Dr. Helen Sharpe, Janet Montgomery as Dr. Lauren Bloom, Jocko Sims as Dr. Floyd Reynolds, Gina Gershon as Jeanie Bloom, Genevieve Angelson as Dr. Mia Castries, Anna Suzuki as Sandra Fall, Teresa Patel as Paramedic Harvell and many more. With the new season, we will probably see new faces in the upcoming seasons, or some of the reoccurring characters will have a bigger part in the fifth season, but the time will tell.
