NEW AMSTERDAM’s Max (Ryan Eggold) has big plans in place: Thanks to his new board seat (and the Resistance 2.0), he wants to save the hospital from Veronica (Michelle Forbes). But, naturally, the fight won’t exactly be smooth.

“It’s never as easy as you think it’s going to be to win that war,” executive producer Peter Horton teases. “It’s a journey, full of twists and turns. And she is a really formidable foe—it’s like the clash of the titans. They both go at each other for a number of episodes. So it’s a really fun ride. I love what [showrunner] David [Schulner] and his team came up with for this.”

“We knew that Max can’t go back to London as long as Veronica’s there,” Schulner adds. “He’s coming in with a new singular focus to get her out, and then he can go home to Sharpe. So we’re in this battle royale. But as soon as Veronica’s gone, Max can finally go home.”

But with Veronica out of town when the medical drama returns on Tuesday, April 19, the doctors take a much needed break at a bar in “All Night Long.” On tap? Karaoke and drinking—with a twist.

“And now for something completely different,” Schulner jokes. “We’ve been off the air for so long, and we knew that we wanted to come back with a huge bang. Sometimes that means our big event episode [is] someone’s burning down the hospital or there’s a hurricane coming. We just wanted to challenge ourselves: How can we do that without an explosion, without a fire, without an ambulance crash? How can we recreate—or redefine—an event episode on our own terms? I think we came up with something really exciting and really unexpected.”

“The fun of this one, too, is is not based on the event as much as it’s based on our characters,” Horton adds. “Putting so many of our characters in jeopardy is an event, but like David said, [there’s] no ambulance crash, no hurricane, no bomb in the building. It’s about them. It’s about the people we’ve grown to love so so dearly. And that was just our way of tackling that beast this time.”

But outside of the on-screen drama and adventure, there’s been big off-screen news, as well: NBC announced in March that the medical drama would end with its upcoming fifth season.

“Our plans haven’t changed for this season,” Schulner says. “We’ve been mapped out for a while, and we’ve had this ending in mind for a while—you end where you begin. We’ve set up this ending in the very first episode of season 4. So we’re heading in a direction that Sharpe and Max, this trajectory that they’re on, is going to culminate at the end of the season.”

And with the end around the corner, “because there’s only 13 left next year, we have become determined to make them the best 13 episodes we’ve ever made,” Horton says. “We want this show to go out with its appropriate grace and quality and potential. So look out—it’s gonna be fun.”
