Hit medical drama The Good Doctor will return to Sky Witness for its 2nd Season in October the UK channel has announced.

The series follows Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore), a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, who relocates from a quiet country life to join a prestigious hospital’s surgical unit. Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, Shaun uses his extraordinary medical gifts to save lives and challenge the scepticism of his colleagues. Aiding him along the way is his one advocate, Dr Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff).

As the 2nd season picks up, Dr Shaun Murphy’s career at St Bonaventure Hospital is still in the balance, and his proposed treatment for a homeless patient puts him in the line of fire. Meanwhile, Dr Glassman must overcome his personal feelings about his oncologist, Dr Marina Blaize (House’ star Lisa Edelstein), and face a difficult decision about his health.

Fiona Gubelmann (Dr Morgan Reznick), Will Yun Lee (Dr Alex Park), Christina Chang (Dr Audrey Lim) and Paige Spara (Lea) have all been upped to series regular roles for the new season. That last one is an interesting addition, as Lea, Shaun’s former neighbour, left for Pittsburgh last season, but it looks like she has returned.

They join other series regulars Nicholas Gonzalez (Dr Neil Melendez), Antonia Thomas (Dr Claire Browne), Beau Garrett (Jessica Preston) and Tamlyn Tomita (Allegra Aoki). Despite appearing in the trailer, Chuku Modu, who played Dr Jared Kalu, will not be back as a regular next season and is only guest starring in the opening episode.

The Good Doctor‘ Season 2 premieres Tuesday, 9th October 2018 at 9pm on Sky Witness & NOW TV.
