The Good Doctor premiered in 2017 and is currently in its sixth season. The hit medical drama series continues to keep us on the edge of our seats, so we’re looking forward to its return to the small screen.
Here’s all you need to know about Season 6 of The Good Doctor.
When will The Good Doctor be released?
The Good Doctor returns on Monday, October 3, after Bachelor in Paradise on ABC. New episodes are shown at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
We’re waiting for confirmation on when The Good Doctor season 6 will be available in the UK, however previous seasons have been available on Sky TV/NOW TV.
What is The Good Doctor’s plot?
The series’ official synopsis is as follows:
“Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore), a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, has worked relentlessly to demonstrate to his colleagues that his exceptional medical abilities would save lives. Season 5 finds Shaun navigating more concerns as a big change comes to St. Bonaventure, all while arranging a wedding. Meanwhile, the rest of the squad must deal with the intricacies of their own shifting relationships while dealing with life-or-death scenarios.”
While the season 5 finale included Shaun and Lea’s wedding, it also ended on a significant cliffhanger, with Dalisay Villanueva and Dr. Audrey Lim both stabbed and laying on the floor as the season concluded. One of the main early issues for season 6 is what will happen to these two long-time series regulars.
The following is the synopsis for the season 6 premiere episode, “Afterparty”:
“A violent attack at the hospital disrupts Shaun and Lea’s long-awaited wedding reception, and the entire team must mobilize to save the wounded. Meanwhile, the trauma of witnessing people he loves in life-threatening situations is hurting Shaun in a variety of ways.”
