In the wake of the ambulance crash that ended season one of “New Amsterdam,” medical director Dr. Max Goodwin must grieve the death of someone close to him while continuing his commitment to solve systemic health care issues at the hospital.

Add his new responsibilities as a father and his cancer still lingering in the rear-view mirror, everyone around Max has to wonder how long he can sustain this impossible load. But, “How can I help?” is not just Max’s catchphrase, it’s his reason for living. As long as he’s helping others, he’s able to find hope in the most hopeless of places.

New Amsterdam stars Ryan Eggold, Janet Montgomery, Freema Agyeman, Jocko Sims, with Tyler Labine and Anupam Kher; and is inspired by Dr. Eric Manheimer’s memoir Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital and his 15 years as medical director at the hospital.
