Alas, New Amsterdam fans. Showrunners previously confirmed that the series is ending after the current (fifth) season.

In the years since New Amsterdam first aired on NBC, viewers have gotten to know and love the colorful cast of characters who work at Bellevue Hospital. Sadly, ahead of the Season 5 premiere, series staple Freema Agyeman — who played Helen — announced her exit from the show.

Meet Gabrielle — the newest nurse on ‘New Amsterdam.’

Season 5 of New Amsterdam (quite literally) started off with a bang. In Episode 3, Bellevue Hospital dealt with the aftermath of a tragic explosion. Heading into the fourth episode of the season, entitled “Heal Thyself,” Bellevue is still recovering.

The description for Episode 4 teased that Max forces the staff to take a “personal health day,” while Iggy went on a first date. In addition, teasers hinted that there was a love connection brewing between Dr. Reynolds and a “persuasive new member of the staff.”

*Gabrielle has entered the chat.*

Although not much is known about her character as of this writing, we anticipate that she will play a major part in Season 5’s storyline.
