      Season 1 – New Amsterdam

      2018 Drama TRAILER for New Amsterdam: Season 1 Trailer List
      34% 32 Reviews Tomatometer 69% 100+ Ratings Audience Score Dr. Max Goodwin is brilliant, charming -- and the new medical director at America's oldest public hospital. While he's set on tearing down the bureaucracy to provide exceptional care, the doctors and staff are not so sure. They've heard this before, and no one else has delivered on those promises. Not taking no for an answer, Max disrupts the status quo and proves he will stop at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed, underfunded and underappreciated hospital -- the only one in the world capable of treating Ebola patients, prisoners from Rikers Island and the president of the United States all under one roof -- and return it to the glory that put it on the map. Inspired by Bellevue in New York City. Read More Read Less Watch on Peacock Stream Now

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Overcrowded, overwrought, and overly familiar, New Amsterdam plays more like an exquisite corpse of pre-existing shows than a breakthrough for the genre -- though that may be enough for medical drama devotees.

      Previous Andrew Dansby Houston Chronicle It's like The Good Doctor with cancery old guy instead of autistic young guy. It's like Grey's Anatomy with caring instead of boffing. It's like E.R. without a cardiology department. People are going to love it. May 8, 2019 Full Review Amy Amatangelo Paste Magazine [New Amsterdam] takes itself so, so seriously. 6.3/10 May 8, 2019 Full Review Brit Trogen The Atlantic Addressing medicine's many ills requires acknowledging their complexity; New Amsterdam does the opposite, leaving only frustration and fear in its wake. For a show about healing the system, it may do real harm. Nov 29, 2018 Full Review Alan Pergament Buffalo News I'd never bet against a hospital series working in Buffalo. 2.5/4 May 8, 2019 Full Review Dominic Patten Deadline Hollywood Daily It sure feels like something you've seen before.

      Previous Neisha L The first and fifth seasons are two of the best. I cried myself out on this last season because it's just too beautiful. Yes, it is a medicine show similar to others but this one includes diversity, includes relevant topics of today's world. I'm a student in a health field and I loved this show! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/20/23 Full Review Ally & S Love love love this series. Too much craziness and depression in the world we live in but this show is exactly what the doctor ordered 😃 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/20/23 Full Review Gustavo L Empezo muy bien pero fue poco a poco perdiendo mi interés con los casos y la forma en que el personaje principal fue llevado. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 09/12/23 Full Review Arthur W too much moralism and the good guy always win, any medical tv show is better than this season at least Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/29/23 Full Review Kasturi A The story is different then usual shows, it focuses on Public Hospitals unlike most of the medical dramas which showcase Private hospitals and discussions on doctor's personal life. This one is balanced. Max Goodwin's as a character is a hoot! Loved it Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/11/23 Full Review Jon.Stephanie F Too political. There is a balance and the writers ruined this show.
