Is New Amsterdam ending?
The popular series first premiered in 2018.

The series announced that the two-part finale would air on January 17, 2023.
NBC stated: “After five years, the time has finally come to say goodbye to New Amsterdam.
“The long-running NBC medical drama is airing its final episodes in a two-hour event on Tuesday, January 17 at 9/8c.”
The show’s star Ryan Eggold told NBC Insider about the finale: “Everyone has always been there to support each other and keep each other going and keep this show and this family together. And that is very moving to me and to say I’m gonna miss everybody is an understatement.
“I can’t imagine what’s gonna happen on the last day. I’m gonna just fall apart.
“We’ll put me on a gurney, wheel me out, give me a big bottle of tequila, and call it a day.”
In response, the show shared an emotional clip on their Instagram account with the caption: “Thank you for 5 amazing seasons.”
