'New Amsterdam' Season 2: When will Episode 18 air and what to expect when the show returns?
‘New Amsterdam’ is a feel-good medical drama whose inspiration stems from a novel titled, 'Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital' by author Eric Manheimer. It showcases the lives of medical professionals taking us through the journey of their career and personal priorities. Bellevue is the oldest public hospital in America and Dr Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) is the new medical doctor whose goal is to provide exceptional care while skipping the bureaucracy.
Season 2 of the esteemed series created by David Schulner had premiered on September 24, 2019. Doctors Goodwin, Vijay Kapoor (Anupam Kher), Iggy Frome (Tyler Labine), Floyd Reynolds (Jocko Sims) and Lauren Bloom (Janet Montgomery) try their best to provide the best medical service to patients. The latest episode, Season 2 Episode 17 'Liftoff', saw Reynolds leave his peers to move away with his fiancee Evie (Margot Bingham). Fans were hoping the writers could bring back Dr Reynolds and they were wondering till when would they have to wait to know their favorite character's fate.
Due to the coronavirus epidemic, Universal Television decided to halt the production of ‘New Amsterdam' on March 12, 2020. As of now, new episodes are not being filmed and fans have to wait till April to see the fates of their favorite medical experts.
Season 2 Episode 18 titled 'Righteous Right Hand' will premiere on Tuesday, April 14, 2020, at 10 pm ET, on NBC.
The new episode's promo sees the hospital tackling a flu outbreak with Dr Reynolds claiming, "This strain is more deadly than anything we've seen in years." To join the staff during this fearful time is Daniel Dae Kim's, Dr. Cassian Shin who will be the new head trauma surgeon. Max asks Helen (Freema Agyeman) to "Keep the hospital running like a hospital" as he puts his efforts into the outbreak. In the last episode, "Liftoff", Helen was "reinstated as deputy medical director (and head of the oncology department)" and she's in for some changes, alright. It looks like while the wait may be a tad longer than fans are used to, we can still afford to wait for a show as good as this.
