ABC has officially handed out a fourth season renewal for showrunner David Shore’s hit medical drama series “The Good Doctor” which will run during the 2020-2021 broadcast season.
Freddie Highmore stars as Dr. Shaun Murphy, a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, who relocates from a quiet country life to join the prestigious St. Bonaventure hospital’s surgical unit.
Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, his only advocate, Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff), challenges the scepticism and prejudices of the hospital’s board and staff when he brings him in to join the team.
The series has been a solid hit for ABC and is considered their cornerstone Monday night series.
