The first season of The Good Doctor came out in 2017, and the show is now in its sixth season. The famous medical drama keeps us on the edge of our seats, so we can’t wait for it to come back to our TV screens.
The Good Doctor Release Date
According to whattowatch, The Good Doctor will be back on Monday, October 3, after Bachelor in Paradise on ABC. At 10 p.m. ET/PT, there are new episodes.
We’re still waiting to hear when season 6 of The Good Doctor might start in the UK, but you can watch past seasons on Sky TV or NOW TV.
The Plot of the Good Doctor
Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore), a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, has worked hard to show his colleagues that his extraordinary medical skills will save lives. In season 5, Shaun faces more uncertainty as he plans his wedding, and a significant change comes to St. Bonaventure. As they continue dealing with life-and-death situations, the rest of the team must also deal with the complicated changes in their relationships.
Shaun and Lea got married in the season 5 finale. Still, the season ended with a major cliffhanger: Villanueva’s abusive ex-boyfriend attacked Dalisay Villanueva and Dr. Audrey Lim. They were both stabbed and lying on the floor as the season ended. One of the most critical early questions for season 6 is what will happen to these two long-time series regulars.
Here is a summary of “Afterparty,” the first episode of Season 6:
“A violent attack at the hospital stops Shaun and Lea’s long-awaited wedding reception, and the whole team has to work together to save the people who were hurt. Shaun is being damaged in more than one way by the trauma of seeing people he cares about in dangerous situations.
