New Amsterdam Season 5: When will the new episodes premiere?
Unfortunately, the new series will not return on the network in 2022, so fans will have to wait a little longer, which is a few weeks. The 11th episode, “Falling,” is set to premiere on Tuesday, January 3, 2023, at the same time slot of 10/9c on NBC and later on Peacock. On the other hand, it is already assumed that the new episodes will continue the plot from the previous episodes. The episode is directed by Peter Horton and written by Mona Mansour and Laura Valdivia.
The runtime of each episode is approximately 43 minutes. The official synopsis of the episode states, “When Helen Sharpe unexpectedly returns to New York, Max escapes to the wilderness on a corporate retreat with Bloom, Wilder, and Iggy; fun soon turns into a catastrophe that threatens a life; Reynolds agrees to perform a risky surgery.” In the meantime, we urge viewers to catch up with the prior episodes of the fifth season to get an idea of how the story will unfold.
