Finally, New Amsterdam season 5 begins streaming on Netflix in September 2023, ending a lengthy drought for the binge-watchers who made their way through the first four seasons earlier this year.
The hit NBC medical drama starring Ryan Eggold came to an end after five seasons in January 2023, but New Amsterdam found a second wind when the series started calling Netflix a new streaming home.
As previously mentioned, the fifth and final season arrives on Netflix in September, specifically on Wednesday, Sept. 20. How many episodes do fans have to look forward to for a binge-watch? Here’s everything to know about the episode count!

Why is New Amsterdam season 5 so short?
When NBC announced in March 2022 that New Amsterdam season 5 would be the last of the series, the network also revealed that the final season would only have 13 episodes. It’s typical for some long-running broadcast series to have reduced episode counts for their final seasons.
In January 2020, NBC renewed New Amsterdam for three more seasons, which resulted in its final three seasons, seasons 3 through 5. At the time of the good news, NBC didn’t state how many episodes would be in each season, though the pandemic made that unpredictable anyway.
If you’re binge-watching season 5 on Netflix for the first time and are wondering why the season doesn’t have more episodes, it’s because it’s the final season. There aren’t any additional episodes of the series, and there will not be a New Amsterdam season 6.
