'New Amsterdam' Season 3 Trailer Teases Dr. Kapoor Contracting COVID and More Max and Helen Sparks

Season 3 of New Amsterdam kicks off on March 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

Life at New Amsterdam Hospital was never easy — and that was before a global pandemic hit. Needless to say, the good doctors of New Amsterdam will be feeling the effects of the traumas and tragedies both in their professional lives and their professional ones.

In PEOPLE's exclusive first look at the trailer for season 3, fans are reminded of where things left off — before the world took a turn. Dr. Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) was struggling with being a single parent; Dr. Lauren Bloom (Janet Montgomery) was continuing to recover from an Adderall addiction; Dr. Iggy Frome (Tyler Labine) and his partner were preparing to adopt a baby but struggling to communicate; Dr. Floyd Reynolds (Jocko Sims) was having difficulty deciding between staying at New Amsterdam or following his fiancée to San Francisco; and Dr. Cassian Shin (Daniel Dae Kim) had just arrived to join the team.

Oh, and major sparks continued to fly between Max and Dr. Helen Sharpe (Freema Agyeman). Let's not forget that!

Well, now Dr. Vijay Kapoor (Anupam Kher) is a patient, it seems, with COVID-19. "How could this have happened so fast?" asks Helen.

"That's what I'm trying to figure out," says Max.

As the footage shows Lauren pulling down her mask with her face covered in lines and bruises from wearing a mask so much for so long, Max's voiceover says, "We're tired, we're hurting, but we've survived."

The clip concludes with Max saying, "I don't want to fix the system. I want to build something better. Something better for my daughter. Something better for you."

Oh, and yeah, he said that to Helen.

Pass the tissues.
