New Amsterdam season 3 episodes

The third season picks up in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic, being one of the many medical dramas (and television shows in general) to write the real-life events into their fictional world. Season 3 opens with New Amsterdam caring for patients with COVID and victims of a plane crash. Dr. Kapoor, one of their own, suffers from the effects of the virus.

After Dr. Kapoor recovers and is discharged from the hospital, he sends in his resignation. Kher left the series after season 3 episode 7, which finds his character leaving without speaking to his colleagues. (It’s later revealed in season 4 that Dr. Kapoor died.)

The end of season 3 finds Dr. Goodwin and Dr. Sharpe getting closer in their relationship, amid other changes for their colleagues around the hospital. This season-ending development tees up their story in season 4.
