According to Hollywood Reporter, NBC used the opportunity of the press conference on Saturday at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour to fully commit to medical drama to reveal the good news.
Till Season 2, the show has succeeded to attract an average of 9.8 million viewers. This seems a good show to win Tuesdays at 10 pm in the demo. With a week of delayed viewing, the series scores the third-biggest lift on all of television and second-highest for the network.
Janet Montgomery, Freema Agyeman, Jocko Sims, Tyler Labine and Anupam Kher round out the core cast. ‘New Amsterdam’ is the third NBC show to score an early renewal, joining ‘This Is Us’ and ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine.’
