New Amsterdam: Immortal No More?


We've already been told that New Amsterdam is on the bubble, but sadly it is looking to be less and less likely of a lock for a second season with each passing day.


Today, TVGuide classified it as a 4 on a scale of 1 to 10 for chances of renewal (with a 10 being the most likely). Also, a FOX rep told the Hollywood Reporter that of its freshman shows, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Back to You are the ones most likely to be back.


I don't think that New Amsterdam is by any means a perfect show (the crime stories element especially is generally kind of lacking), but I definitely think there's a story to tell beyond 8 episodes.


A cancellation would certainly make me sad. How about you?


Also, make sure to check out this TV Guide list to get the status on all of your favorite shows on the bubble. I am happy to report that Eli Stone (the other bubble show to which I am most attached) is classified as a 7.

I was beginning to get attached to New Amsterdam. I really hope they continue. It stinks that they only had 8 episodes. I think the show was very interesting and with every new plot it made me more curious to learn about John and his past and it gives the viewers a chance to really grasp the concept of the story. I definitley think they should give it another chance.

I second that, HouseAddict! I wouldn't be heartbroken over this one, but I'm very interested in how the show would carry on from this season, so it'd be cool to see it return.

I don't see how it can't come back. I've watched all episodes and obviously he's still immortal and hasn't found the "one." So you see there has to be a season two. Now that Sarah will be gone, John will have to start looking for the other woman from the train. Every episode has great plot and intrigue into the main character. And there's so many questions about John and his 64 kids still left unanswered. So I'm confident the show will come back.

I really hope that New Amsterdam comes back for a second season! I am totally addicted to this show! I guess that it doesn't hurt that the star of the show is adorable! Well that is what I think :)

To cancel it would be a terrible mistake. Surely they can afford us at least one more season of this fantastic show!

Booo to Fox if this show is canceled. The sci-fi genre is too hot right now to do that. Sure, they have "The Sarah Connor Chronicles", a nice show. Based on the movies. But I remember a major motion picture that was sprung based on a series....a series they canceled. Firefly anybody? Booo to you Fox. Don't let another good one go!
