New Amsterdam Season 3 promo sees one of our own in danger

New Amsterdam Season 3 is on its way. We get our first look at the season in a trailer that puts one of our own on the line.

It’s been a long wait for the third season. The wait is almost over, with the new episode airing on Tuesday, March 2. Our Tuesdays are about to get a whole lot busier!

As many will remember, the show was shut down early due to the pandemic. Season 2 was cut short with an abrupt finale. On top of that, the show opted not to air one of the episodes already filmed. It happened to be an episode involving a super flu and the creators felt it too close to home back in March 2020.

However, that storyline was always going to come back up. It’s now part of the third season premiere, with much of the episode still the same. The promo makes it clear that one of our own’s life is on the line. Dr. Kapoor is going to have to fight the virus. What’s not clear is whether this is just some unnamed super flu or whether it will become COVID-19 now that filming is back on.

We also don’t really know how many episodes the pandemic storyline will cover. Medical dramas have been hit and miss. Grey’s Anatomy has made it a huge part of the whole season so far, while The Resident did it for one episode with the aftermath post-pandemic being a bigger part of the story.

What to expect on New Amsterdam Season 3

The new episode is sure to bring plenty of highs and lows again. We’ll see Max want to tear the entire medical system down.

He’s always hated how unfair the system is. He wants to treat people and help them, but he can’t always do that. With being a public hospital, there are a few other loops to jump through, especially when they have to treat absolutely anybody who walks through the door without necessarily having insurance coverage.

Meanwhile, the doctors will all need to come together through this difficult time. They’ll be worried about one of their own, but also worried about their own families and their patients.

And it looks like Ella is going into labor during the episode. And she’s doing it without the father of her baby while the grandfather of her baby is fighting for his life. It’s no wonder she’s anxious and scared.
