Talk about a positive long-term prognosis: NBC has renewed New Amsterdam for three more seasons. The mega-pickup — announced Saturday at the Peacock’s portion of the Television Critics Assoc. winter press tour — ensures that the Ryan Eggold-fronted medical drama (which is currently in its second season) will remain on the air through May 2023.
The blockbuster renewal deal, while rare, is not unprecedented. Last May, NBC similarly picked up New Amsterdam‘s Tuesday-night lead-in, This Is Us, for three more seasons.
UPDATE: In listing his many reasons for the multi-year renewal, NBC entertainment chairman Paul Teledgy alluded to “the potential for a spinoff,” adding: “I can imagine a whole world around New Amsterdam.”
Season to date, New Amsterdam is averaging a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 9.8 million viewers overall (Live+7 Day). It currently stands as NBC’s No. 4 scripted series (tied with Chicago Med), following This Is Us, Chicago PD and Chicago Fire.
TVLine’s 2020 Renewal Scorecard has been updated to reflect New Amsterdam‘s super-sized renewal.
