It is being reported that New Amsterdam will be coming to an end on NBC after five seasons. Currently airing Season 4, the medical drama received a rare three-season pickup back in early 2020 during its sophomore run that will take it to Season 5.

The series premiered in 2018 as one of the top-rated new shows among the freshman class. While its viewership has fallen off quite a bit since then, it still garners decent ratings in its regular Tuesday night time slot.

New Amsterdam stars Ryan Eggold in his first lead role in a TV series since playing Tom Keen on 'The Blacklist' and its failed spin-off, 'The Blacklist: Redemption'. Eggold stars as Max Goodwin, a brilliant doctor who is New Amsterdam Hospital's newest medical director. Wanting to disrupt the status quo, he sets out to bypass bureaucracy and focus on providing patients with exceptional care while dealing with his share of problems in his personal life.

13 final episodes have been ordered to conclude the show's story during the 2022-2023 season. It will be its lowest episode count yet, bringing its total to 92 - just shy of the 100-episode milestone. For now, new Season 4 episodes are airing Tuesdays, with the season finale scheduled to air on May 24.
