NBC has handed out a three-season renewal to its hit medical drama. Now that’s what you call a vote of confidence.
New Amsterdam, which is currently airing its second season, has been renewed by the network for three additional seasons. The renewal brings the medical drama’s total to five seasons.
The early renewal from the network was announced by the chairman of NBC Entertainment, Paul Telegdy, during the Television Critics Association winter press tour Saturday morning.
The series from creator David Schulner is based on the book Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital by Eric Manheimer.
The series follows Dr. Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) as he becomes the medical director of one of the US’ oldest public hospitals, aiming to reform the neglected facility by tearing up its bureaucracy in order to provide exceptional care to patients.
In addition to Eggold, the series stars Janet Montgomery, Freema Agyeman, Jocko Sims, with Tyler Labine and Anupam Kher.
