ABC Releases Trailer For ‘The Good Doctor’ Season 3 As Shaun Navigates Romantic Relationships
‘The Good Doctor‘ returns for its 3rd Season later this month in the US (October in the UK), and it seems love is in the air, as Shaun is learning how to navigation the complex world of dating, whilst Glassman is tying the knot!
From ‘House’ creator David Shore, the series stars Freddie Highmore as Shaun Murphy, a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, 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 skepticism of his colleagues.
At the end of Season 2, we saw Shaun ask out pathologist Dr. Carly Lever (Jasika Nicole) out on a date. It would appear things went well from the trailer, as we see the couple head in for (what is presumably) their first kiss. Although, that doesn’t stop Shaun’s friends, such as Dr. Claire Browne (Antonia Thomas), offering up some unsolicited advice to Carly, which is not very gratefully received! Shaun is not the only one dealing with matters of the heart this season, as the trailer also shows Glassman (Richard Schiff) appearing to place a ring on the finger of hospital barista Debbie Wexler (Sheila Kelley).
‘The Good Doctor’ has always been a show for great notable guest stars, and this season is no exception. In the trailer we see another familiar face from ‘The West Wing’ pop in, as Joshua Malina stops by the hospital. We also see ‘9-1-1’ and ‘UnREAL‘ star Tracie Thoms appear to threaten to report someone (Shaun, possibly?) to the medical board. Another guest star, not seen in the trailer but confirmed, is ‘House’ alumnus Robert Sean Leonard, who will be appearing in a guest role this season, but he’ll be showing up as patient rather than a doctor.
‘The Good Doctor‘ Season 3 premieres in October 2019 (exact day/time TBC) on Sky Witness in the UK, and Monday September 23, 2019 at 10/9c on ABC in the US.
