Well, people have been loving the American drama series called New Amsterdam for two seasons now and it is not long before we have its third installment with us. The tale of this show has been adopted from Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital that has been penned down by Eric Manheimer. For the first time, we had the series with us back on the 25th of September 2018 on NBC. David Schulner has created this series for the network. Back in January of 2020, it was confirmed by the creators that New Amsterdam is going to have more seasons with the third on its way.
As for the plot of the series, New Amsterdam throws the entire spotlight on Dr. Max Goodwin as he has become the medical director of one of the oldest public hospitals that are present in the United States.

On the other hand, we see that Max is preparing for an alternative to crowdfunding because he has some different beliefs. All this while, we have seen that Dr. Sharpe preparing for the Fight Cancer charity event. During this, he interacts with the people who have been diagnosed with cancer and takes into account everything that they might be feeling. Later on, Dr. Reynolds is finally leaving this hospital to work in San Francisco instead.

New Amsterdam Season 3 Episode 1 Release Date
Now, as for the new season of the show, even a release date has been set and you all might already know about it. New Amsterdam season 3 episode 1 release date is set to be the 2nd of March 2021. During this, we witnessed that the episode had been replaced in place of the planned episode called Pandemic. As per the explanation given to all the fans by Ryan Eggold as well as Daniel Dae Kim, they did so because that piece of New Amsterdam season 2 was too similar to the events that were happening at that time because of the Corona pandemic. At this point in time, we were shown some of the scenes from that episode which employed the role of Dr. Cassian Shin. This acted as a medium to introduce us to the character before he actually debuts in the third installment.
In this episode, we will witness a plane crashing in the East River. The situation around the show is not as good too because everyone is coming up from the pandemic scenario and trying to adjust to the new normal. This is when the investigators come to ask questions to the flight crew but the pilot will not be able to remember everything because of the crash he has just been through. Iggy is helping him through this situation. On the other hand, we will see that Max is finding out about the rare medication.
