Plot Synopsis

NIGHTWATCH is a one-hour series that follows multiple sets of partners in the New Orleans Emergency Medical Services unit who cover the unpredictable period from 8pm to 4am, as they battle time and circumstance to save lives. In the Big Easy, police officers, fire fighters and EMTs working the overnight shift answer as many as a thousand emergency calls a night. As the city's heroes, one thing remains clear -- the job of an emergency responder in NOLA is not only about saving lives, it's being there as a support system for the community of people in this diverse and inspiring city. In the series premiere, a man discovered in the street bleeding from numerous gunshot wounds brings multiple teams of EMTs to the scene. While they work furiously to keep the victim alive before taking him to the hospital, the police immediately begin the investigation. As the evening goes on, the calls keep coming. The fire fighters encounter a case of suspected arson and the EMTs at the scene of a car accident catch a driver who refuses to admit he is on drugs. Season 2 of NIGHTWATCH premiered on Thursday, November 5, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT on A&E. In the second season, the overnight shift in the city of New Orleans continues to bring extreme and complex incidents to the EMS teams. Season 2 highlights include a dire situation at Mardi Gras for EMT's Titus and Dan when they must race to save an 18-year old who has suffered a through and through gunshot wound to the head. SWAT officers Jay and Alley enter into a high speed chase that becomes potentially devastating when the driver in pursuit opens fire on them. And things take a bizarre turn when officer Keeley responds to a woman whose eyeball has been bitten out in street fight. But when one of their own, a beloved officer is killed on duty, the whole city comes together in true New Orleans fashion in celebration of his life and years of service.
A&E premiered the 10-episode third season of NIGHTWATCH on Thursday, December 1, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT. In the new season, the New Orleans EMS are cutting the ribbon on a brand-new facility after losing their home base during the devastation of Hurricane Katrina more than a decade ago. As their beloved city sees a crippling spike in heroin overdoses, everyone from the police to the EMS are on high alert as drug deaths skyrocket. And when a fellow police officer is struck down while on duty, the entire NIGHTWATCH family must rally around each other and the community for support. In the premiere episode, the NOLA EMS team celebrates the opening of its new headquarters, finally complete after ten years of working out of trailers. Meanwhile, Titus has his own new beginning as he's received his paramedic's license and he and long-time partner Dan must adjust to their new shared roles in a variety of calls. And new team, Arkady and Ted, get to know each other's styles in their first shifts together.
