New Amsterdam spoilers follow.

New Amsterdam star Jocko Sims has addressed whether his character is staying for good.

The third season of the NBC medical drama premiered earlier this month, following in the footsteps of Grey's Anatomy and Chicago Med by addressing the coronavirus pandemic head-on.

After Neurological Department head Vijay Kapoor was struck down by the virus, Medical Director Max Goodwin called for assistance — making way for the surprise return of cardiovascular surgeon Dr Floyd Reynolds.

And, speaking recently, Sims revealed fans will "have to wait and see" if Reynolds will stick around, adding that "no character is safe".

"In reality, there are a lot of things to consider if Reynolds were to stay," Sims told TV Line.

"It is entirely possible that Evie and Reynolds break up. It's entirely possible that Evie decides that, 'Hey, I made a mistake leaving New York. I can't live without New York.' There's a lot of possibility there when you have a relationship such as theirs. Would she come back to New Amsterdam, in particular? Who knows? We'll have to wait and see."

On the show teasing fans about Reynolds' future, he added: "Shows often toy with the idea [that] a character might die or a character might leave, and I didn't expect, especially this early in this series, that to be something they toy with, and they are.

"They're toying with the audience quite a bit. And I think they like that space."

He later confirmed: "I want to say that no character is safe, ever. We found out at the end of Season 1 that a character died, and we didn't know who it was, and it turns out it was Georgia, Max's wife.

"I think much the same, by the end of this season, who knows, we may lose a character.

"I literally don't know yet, but I think it's very, very possible."

New Amsterdam airs on NBC in America, while Amazon Prime Video and NOW TV carry the show in the UK. It's also available on All4.
