One of the several series of NBC is New Amsterdam, which will not be returning this fall due to coronavirus pandemic. The sudden ending because of the industrywide shutdown last year kept the viewers thinking about what’s to come.
This Hospital drama is set in New York City, where Covid-19 hit the hardest, and so obviously, the show will not pick up where it left off. The medical drama does bring some surprises for season 3, though. Yes! New Amsterdam is returning for season 3, and not only that but with many revelations of fan-favorite Helen Sharpe.
New Season Expectations
As we all know, Dr. Floyd Reynolds (Jocko Sims) famously (and sadly) took off for San Francisco in Episode 17, but he has confused us about his return in interviews. Hence if he is back, it will be in some capacity. If you wonder about any new addition of characters, we can surely tell there will not be any as Daniel Dae Kim of last Season is for now.
As Dr. Cassian Shin, Daniel Dae Kim is the new head trauma surgeon, and she did not come here to save everyone but to save the trauma victims. Last we left off with Dr. Helen Sharpe embarked on a relationship with series newcomer Dr. Cassian Shin.
The finale of season 2 was supposed to have a hurricane episode, as said by Schulner, but of course, it couldn’t be done.
Schulner said in an interview, “Hurricanes are becoming more frequent because of global warming; a lot of hospitals don’t have the resources to handle it. [The doctors] were going to a failing hospital to help — it was going to be a huge cliffhanger, life and death, people’s jaws would have dropped. Now they’re going to have to wait before jaws drop again,” he said.
This new Season will bring us an episode of the current pandemic, too, as New York is the first and most affected.
Where to watch: – Platform, release date.
Though vague, NBC has suggested that the premiere date of New Amsterdam will be after 1st January 2021.
The return of New Amsterdam will be on NBC, the NBC app, Peacock, and Hulu. Also, you can catch up with it on Hulu.
