ABC has renewed their freshmen hit THE GOOD DOCTOR for a second season.
The medical drama has been the undisputed hit of the season. It’s currently the second highest-rated show on ABC, behind only Grey’s Anatomy. ABC previously picked it up for a full season after airing just two episodes.
“The Good Doctor‘s message of inclusiveness resonates with our viewers and is a hallmark of what we aim to accomplish here at ABC,” said Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment. “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.”
Freddie Highmore stars as Dr. Shaun Murphy, a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome. The series also stars Antonia Thomas, Antonia Thomas, Nicholas Gonzalez, Chuku Modu, Beau Garrett, Hill Harper, Richard Schiff, and Tamlyn Tomita.
