New Amsterdam usually comes out on Tuesday nights on NBC, but the show will be taking a break, as is the norm for network shows during the festive season.

Episode 10, which was titled “Don’t Do This for Me,” came out on November 22, and that was the series’ midseason finale.

When Is ‘New Amsterdam’ Season 5 Returning to NBC

On November 7, NBC confirmed its midseason schedule for the 2022-2023 cycle, and in its announcement, the network revealed when New Amsterdam would be back for two more episodes.

The show will return with its winter premiere event on Tuesday, January 3, and the drama will air at 10 p.m. ET.

When Will the ‘New Amsterdam’ Season 5 End?

The show will be ending with a two-hour season finale, a bumper special that will bring the network program to its dramatic conclusion.

New Amsterdam’s series finale will be ending on January 17 and the episode will be airing from the new time of 9 p.m. ET to conclude at the show’s usual finish time of 11 p.m. ET.

Will Freema Agyeman Return as Dr. Helen Sharpe?

Freema Agyeman portrayed Dr Helen Sharpe in New Amsterdarm up until the show’s fourth season, at which point she exited the series as a regular.

However, it wasn’t the last that fans saw of the character because Agyeman returned for the midseason finale and it has been revealed that she will be back when the show returns from its midseason break.

Showrunner David Schulner spoke to TVLine about how the show will incorporate Agyeman’s Helen in the season and how it will impact Max and his blossoming romance with Dr. Elizabeth Wilder (Sandra Mae Frank).

Of Agyeman’s return in the midseason finale, Schulner told the publication: “We knew we wanted to bring Helen Sharpe back to test Max’s resolve. To test his feelings for Wilder. To test whether or not he’s truly healed.”

Schulner added: “Will [Max] run back to Sharpe? Will he double down on Wilder? There are so many unanswered questions he has for Sharpe. Yet, at the same time, there’s the promise of something new with Wilder. Whatever decision he makes is hard-earned.”

How Helen’s return will impact Max and Elizabeth’s relationship will be seen in the finale of the medical drama.

New Amsterdam returns on Tuesday, January 3, at 10 p.m. ET.
