The end of the first season is considered the best episode of the series.

It also includes a very well-covered storyline on PTSD. But most of all, what got viewers hooked was that final twist.
‘The New Normal’ (3×01)
Season 3 of New Amsterdam premiered on March 2, 2021, post-pandemic. For a medical drama, it is not surprising that the writers decided to focus a chapter on how the medical team deals with the coronavirus – just like they did in Grey’s Anatomy or The Good Doctor. As the medical team is recovering from the pandemic, a plane crash lands in the East River.
