The fourth season of the NBC medical series New Amsterdam arrives in the UK via Sky this month
New Amsterdam is an American medical drama series inspired by New York’s Bellevue Hospital – the oldest public hospital in the United States.
The series follows the lives of overworked doctors at the struggling New Amsterdam Medical Center as they try to provide quality care to their patients and live fulfilling personal lives.
The show’s fourth season aired in the US last year and is finally coming to UK screens.
What is New Amsterdam about?
New Amsterdam follows a renegade doctor, Max Goodwin, as he struggles to accept the realities of America’s healthcare system.
Goodwin is the medical director of America’s oldest public hospital, and often flaunts the rules as he tries to overhaul the system from the inside.
Season four follows a hectic year for hospital staff and many are hoping they will soon turn a page in their busy lives.
The series also follows the personal lives of the hospital staff – and season four sees a development in the relationship between Goodwin and colleague Helen Sharpe.
Doctor Bloom’s relationship with Doctor Leyla Shinwari will also take on new dimensions, Doctor Frome will start a new career and Doctor Reynolds will deal with his personal problems.
Season four also sees the arrival of a new staff member, Doctor Veronica Fuentes, who plans to transform the hospital.
Unfortunately, her methods are proving unpopular as she targets all of the policies that Goodwin had put in place over the past three years.
