Medical drama New Amsterdam will end with its previously announced fifth season during the 2022-23 broadcast season. The Ryan Eggold-led series was previously renewed for its third through fifth season back in January 2020 and, despite being owned in-house by Universal Television, has continued to see its ratings slip. Season four, which ends in May, ranks as one of the network’s least-watched dramas and has subsequently been bounced around the schedule.
NBC has picked up freshman medical drama New Amsterdam for a second season. The series is inspired by Dr. Eric Manheimer’s memoir Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital and his 15 years as medical director at the hospital.
