Season 4 storyline, courtesy of NBC:
After an eventful year of sacrifice and hardship, medical director Max Goodwin and the New Amsterdam team are entering a well-deserved new chapter in their lives. The opening episode, titled “More Joy,” reflects both the motivation of the characters and the tone of season four. More joy: how can we find it and how can we keep it?
For Max, that means acknowledging and letting go of his long simmering feelings towards Dr. Helen Sharpe. While this new relationship brings its share of challenges, Max continues his optimistic – and chimerical – quest to improve our country’s healthcare system.
Continuing their personal journey – including Dr Bloom’s relationship with Dr Leyla Shinwari, who is now his resident, Dr Frome’s new career and Dr Reynolds’ personal entanglements – doctors will strive to embrace the joy and the success of their lives.
But there is a surprise in store for our heroes. Dr Veronica Fuentes joins the New Amsterdam team to help turn around the overburdened and underfunded hospital. His first order of business will be to demolish all the progressive agendas that Max has erected. Max will have his work cut out for him if he wants to outsmart this calm, poised and fearless fixer.
