‘The Good Doctor’ Renewed For Season 2

The
prognosis for “The Good Doctor” is excellent. ABC has renewed the
show for Season 2.

“‘The Good Doctor’s” message of
inclusiveness resonates with our viewers and is a hallmark of what we aim to
accomplish here at ABC,” Channing Dungey, President of ABC Entertainment said
in a statement on Wednesday. “This series has quickly joined the zeitgeist
and broken records in the competitive television landscape. We are thrilled to
announce that Dr. Shaun Murphy will be back for another season.”

In
the series, “Bates Motel” alum Freddie Highmore plays Dr. Shaun
Murphy, a surgical resident who has autism and savant syndrome. Although some
staff and board members at St. Bonaventure hospital had their reservations
about Shaun at the start of the season, he’s quickly become a valued member of
the team, helping out Dr. Neil Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez) on difficult cases
each week.
