All the latest New Amsterdam season 4 news - plus a major season 5 announcement. 

With the abundance of medical dramas to choose from across various streaming services, it's difficult to keep the genre fresh and engaging. New Amsterdam has managed to keep audiences coming back for more, with perfectly pitched levels of drama against intriguing medical stories. The series is based on the book Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital - a medical memoir written by Dr. Eric Manheimer, the former medical director of New York's Bellevue Hospital Center. With 3 seasons under its belt, we look into when New Amsterdam is coming back, and the confirmed season 4 release date. 

More drama to get your teeth into this month includes Marriage starring Nicola Walker - the BBC show everyone is talking about. The Suspect on ITV is about to drop, with Aiden Turner returning to screens for this psychological thriller. Also on ITV, season 2 of a rebooted nostalgic show returns in the form of Van der Valk filmed across plenty of iconic landscapes. 

When is New Amsterdam coming back? Season 4 release date 

New Amsterdam season 4 premiered in the UK on Sky Witness on August 3, 2022. The remaining episodes will air weekly at 9pm, whilst you can catch-up on any episodes you've missed so far on Sky Go.

After a difficult year, season 4 is set to see Medical Director Max Goodwin and the New Amsterdam team begin a new chapter in their lives. For Max that means surrendering to his feelings towards Dr. Helen Sharpe, which have been sizzling away for quite some time. Also navigating their personal feelings and journeys are Dr. Bloom and Dr. Leyla Shinwari. Dr. Frome has a new career, and Dr. Reynolds has his own personal entanglements.

A surprise is in store when Dr. Veronica Fuentes joins the underfunded New Amsterdam team to help turn it around, and relieve the overburdened staff. Her first move is to destroy every progressive programme Max has put together - Max will have his work cut out under her rule, if he is to outwit this calm and fearless antagonist.

The show is famed for its epic cliffhangers, and its been promised that season 4 will be no different. in an interview with TV line, executive producer David Schulner spoke out on the subject. He said "Season 1, we got to do a great cliffhanger. Season 2 we were robbed of that because we didn’t get to finish filming our season because of the health crisis. 

He continued to say "Season 3 was Max and Sharpe finally getting together and us closing the door on the audience before they could see what happens next. So cliffhangers are something that we obviously love to do, and love to give our audience that kind of anticipation for next season, so you can definitely expect something". 

Is there a season 5 of New Amsterdam?

Yes, there will be a season 5 of New Amsterdam. However, this is also confirmed to be the final season and the show will conclude with the season 5 finale.

The final season will also be shorter than its predecessors, consisting of just 13 episodes. In a statement the President of Scripted Content at NBCUniversal, Lisa Katz, said “The story of Max Goodwin, and his never-ending commitment to patients at New Amsterdam, has been inspiring.
