The doors to New Amsterdam Hospital will be reopened!

New Amsterdam showrunner, executive producer, and creator David Schulner is developing a spinoff series based on the beloved NBC show, Deadline reports.

The series — tentatively titled New Amsterdam: Tomorrow — is set to take place 30 years after the original, with Dr. Max Goodwin's (Ryan Eggold) daughter, Luna Goodwin, taking over as Medical Director of New Amsterdam Hospital, per the outlet.

It's been nearly 14 months since fans unknowingly saw the layout for the new spinoff being set up in the series finale when Molly Griggs played an adult version of Luna.

In the final moments of the episode, a grown-up Luna speaks in front of hospital staff as the new medical director and opens up about how she was inspired to become a doctor because of her father.

"I wanted to start by asking you the same thing my father asked his staff every hour of every single day: how can I help?" she later added.

Although it is unclear if Griggs or Eggold will appear in the new series, Deadline reports that fans can expect the show to "explore the ways artificial intelligence would help advance the medical industry in the future."

NBC confirmed that New Amsterdam would end after five seasons in March 2022. The news came as a shock for many fans, as the show had received a three-season renewal in January 2020. At the time, the series was in the middle of its second season, and NBC estimated that it was averaging almost 10 million viewers.

Apart from Eggold, the original series featured Janet Montgomery, Jocko Sims, Freema Agyeman, Tyler Labine, and Anupam Kher.

"When I first read the pilot script for New Amsterdam, I knew we had a winner. We cheered Max's disruption of the status quo and applauded when he asked his patients the simple yet profound question, 'How can I help?'" said Erin Underhill, the President of Universal Television, in a statement after the announcement was made.

"Over the last four seasons, David, Peter and our incredible cast have tackled important and thought-provoking stories that have touched on the human condition, but also made us laugh and imbued hope. We're so proud of this series and are indebted to everyone involved in bringing New Amsterdam to life. Bravo," the statement continued.

After its series finale, the show's Instagram posted a message to fans, sharing, "Thank you #DamFam, we hope we were able to help. ❤️ All 5 seasons of #NewAmsterdam are streaming now on @peacocktv."
