Due to the coronavirus pandemic, several series are experiencing hiatuses and some of them have even had their seasons shortened, all so as not to expose their producers and team to the spread of the disease that has intensified in the world.
However, New Amsterdam had a good part of its members infected by Covid-19, so some bets that the next season will bring the consequences of this disease to the public have been raised.
But it is worth remembering that a tragedy about an epidemic affecting New York City was discarded in Season 2.
According to the show’s creator and executive producer, David Schulner, the show cannot continue from where the episodes stopped. And all of this is justified, after all, the hospital series has its conflicts, often based on diseases and their patients.
According to Schulner, it is still unclear how the next dramatic developments in the series will take place, given that the writers’ room will only meet again in June. Some initial ideas are already being considered, but how will Season 3 happen? We can make some speculations!
Most likely, the series will have even more emotionally charged conflicts between Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) and Cassian Chin (Daniel Dae Kim). The new frictions can happen mainly due to the relationships that the characters cultivate in the series, in addition to professional matters. It is worth noting that Max has a lot of respect for Cassian, although his philosophies are very contrasting.
However, the creator of New Amsterdam has already stated that Max may not even care about the approach of Cassian and Helen Sharpe (Freema Agyeman) next season. Of course, seeing Max and Helen increasingly distant from each other in past episodes was painful for those who support the couple. All of this already corroborates a bet that the 3rd season will be full of instigating conflicts in this aspect.
Fans of the series can also expect a repetition in certain features of the scripts. An example of this is the approach to the various injustices in the medical system, in addition to the exploitation of corporate greed that prioritizes profits over people’s health.
Some stories are expected to have their consequences and consequences in the new year. In season 2, for example, Iggy (Tyler Labine) was preparing to adopt another boy while researching food addiction, just as Dr. Bloom (played by Janet Montgomery) continued with attempts at reconciliation with her mother. Schulner said the plans for the new season had been dropped, but that everything should be rethought soon.
The creator has also stated that it is not clear whether the coronavirus pandemic will be addressed throughout the season and there will be no new characters included. According to Schulner, the fixed cost of the series will continue and is the only one planned for a new season, until then.
A curious fact is that Daniel Dae Kim was expected to participate in only five episodes, but ended up remaining for new ones.
