New Amsterdam's End Date Revealed

New Amsterdam Ending With Season 5

Michael Ausiello


New Amsterdam Season 4 Cast


The docs at New Amsterdam will be making their final rounds next season.


TVLine has confirmed that the NBC medical drama’s upcoming fifth season will be its last.


New Amsterdam — which stars Ryan Eggold as Dr. Max Goodwin — is currently in its fourth season. Per Deadline, which first broke the news, Season 5 will consist of 13 episodes — the series’ shortest season to date.


Season-to-date, New Amsterdam is averaging 6.2 million total viewers and a 0.7 demo rating (with Live+7 DVR playback factored in) — down 11 and 30 percent from its Season 3 averages. Among the 11 dramas NBC has aired this TV season, it ranks eighth in audience and ninth in the demo.


New Amsterdam was already renewed for next season as part of a three-year pickup made by NBC in 2020.


“The story of Max Goodwin, and his never-ending commitment to patients at New Amsterdam, has been inspiring,” said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Programming, NBCUniversal Television & Streaming, in a statement. “We’re so grateful to [EPs] David Schulner, Peter Horton, and our cast and crew for their incredible dedication, talent and collaboration.”


Added Universal Television president Erin Underhill: “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.”

Not really surprising. I loved this show when it started. My interest has lessened as each episode aired this year. I really don't know what they can do for another year of episodes that could possibly be worth watching.

I will be sorry to see this show go.  Max reminds me so much of my husband, and I just love the show.  It's hard to keep interested in shows when they are consistenly interrupted and do not air for weeks or months at a time.  Such a shame.

Too bad, but I'm also not surprised.   Great show in the beginning, but it's VERY hard to write a consistently good show when there are so many characters in an ensemble cast.   


Oh well ... five seasons is a good run for any TV series.

I'm not surprised it is ending.  This last year's episodes were awful.  When they moved him away to England that did it for me.  There was no family anymore.  I think if they bring them both back and have the shows from the U.S. the show could come back great.  AND get rid of that idiot new head of the hospital.

I'm not surprised either. I read somewhere that Ryan Eggold didn't want to continue the series and wanted out. I guess the last season wasn't a good one.

Re: New Amsterdam's End Date Revealed

When this series first premiered, it was good but the last two seasons were not relevant to the premise. It was like they wanted to push this show off the cliff. Not surprised Season 5 will be the finale. I thought the writers were on drugs when writing the script. Nothing was cohesive. I do like Ryan Eggold. He is a good actor.
