New Amsterdam Season 5 Release Date on Netflix: All You Need to Know

New Amsterdam Season 5: Everything You Need to Know


New Amsterdam is one of the most popular shows to hit Netflix in 2023. If Suits hadn’t been released on Netflix this year, New Amsterdam might have been able to claim the title of “most popular new broadcast/cable show on Netflix” this year. Now, fans are eagerly waiting to watch New Amsterdam season 5 on Netflix.

The first four seasons of New Amsterdam were released on the streaming service earlier this year. Fans couldn’t wait to watch New Amsterdam season 5, but they had to exercise patience until after the season aired on NBC in late January 2023.

Is New Amsterdam Season 5 Coming to Netflix?

Yes, New Amsterdam season 5 is coming to Netflix in September 2023. Netflix announced back in August that the season will be available to stream, and now, that moment is finally here.

All five seasons will be available to stream soon!

New Amsterdam Season 5 Release Time and Date

New Amsterdam season 5 will be released on Netflix at 12:00 a.m. PT on Wednesday, September 20, 2023. Unfortunately, for fans on the East Coast, that will be at 3:00 a.m. ET, so they will have to stay up quite late to watch the season.

All 13 episodes of season 5 will be available to stream on Netflix at that time. It’s a bit disappointing that there are fewer episodes in New Amsterdam season 5 compared to most seasons of the series. The first and fourth seasons had 22 episodes, while the second season had 18 episodes and the third season had 14 episodes.

Why Was New Amsterdam Season 5 the Final Season?

It’s hard to pinpoint the exact reason why New Amsterdam concluded after season 5. The show was technically canceled, but the creative team was given time to plan for the series’ ending. The fifth season was shortened to 13 episodes to wrap up the story.

Overall, New Amsterdam season 5 ended due to low ratings. Season after season, the ratings consistently dropped, and that seems to be the main factor behind NBC’s decision to end the series. While there are always more factors at play behind the scenes, it’s evident that other shows were experiencing improved ratings while fewer viewers were tuning in for New Amsterdam every week.

What’s interesting to note is how the show gained even more popularity after being released on Netflix. One can’t help but wonder if the ratings would have improved or remained steady had the show been available on Netflix for a longer period. While it’s hard to say for certain, there is definitely a benefit for shows like New Amsterdam, Manifest, Suits, and others to have a wider release on Netflix.

New Amsterdam season 5 will be available on Netflix starting at 12:00 a.m. PT on Wednesday, September 20.
