New Amsterdam Season 3 Plot: What can it be About?
In the Season 2 finale, Max struggles to treat a patient suffering from muscular dystrophy disease. Dr. Vijay Kapoor suffers a handsy encounter with the wife of one of his patients, only to realize she has a condition that triggers such behavior. Dr. Helen Sharpe faces a situation where multiple people suffer from the same symptoms, but as usual, she figures it out. Also, Alice and Max break up for the sake of the kids.
The makers pulled a pandemic-themed episode from season 2, to avoid creating a panic among the audiences. But they assured fans that it might be released in the future. So, we can expect them to introduce the episode in the third season. In the episode, New York City might be hit by an outbreak of a deadly contagious virus, the source of which will be unknown. And worse, Dr. Kapoor can be one of the victims. The medical facility might face a shortage of beds and medicines, leading to a lot of chaos. And the burden might fall on Max and his team to make sure the hospital is up and running and also to find the source of the virus, and curb the infection.
In Season 3, the new entry at New Amsterdam, Dr. Daniel Dae Kim, might test the patience of his trainer, Helen. Can he be a potential love interest for her? And now that Max is single again, there is a chance he might make a move on Helen, and fans might finally get to see them as a couple. Iggy might continue to struggle with anxiety unless he faces his fears and seeks help. We can also expect to see the medical practitioners deal with further challenges, and deliver top-notch service to the patients.
