Release Date, Cast Changes & Everything We Know


  • The Good Doctor season 7 has been officially set to premiere on February 20th, 2024, after being delayed by the Hollywood strikes.
  • Multiple character exits are expected in season 7, with Brandon Larracuente confirmed to be leaving the show, and it is likely that Hill Harper won’t return due to his Senate campaign.
  • The upcoming season will address the aftermath of major cliffhangers from season 6, including Shaun becoming a father and changes at the San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital. The season is expected to be highly dramatic.

ABC’s hit medical drama series The Good Doctor has been renewed for a seventh season, and the latest news is positive after months of delay. The Good Doctor follows a young autistic surgeon with savant syndrome named Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) as he rises up the ranks in his medical career and attempts to foster a successful personal and social life. Due to his diagnosis, Shaun can come off as callous and has a few idiosyncrasies, but he befriends several other doctors and residents during his residency at the San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital who help him along the way.

As with many medical dramas such as Grey’s Anatomy or ER, The Good Doctor has experienced its fair share of tragic main character deaths and exits. The narrative has pushed past the boundaries of the inner workings of the hospital itself and into Shaun’s personal life, including his marriage to Lea (Paige Spara) in The Good Doctor season 5 and the birth of their child in season 6. However, the show is an ensemble effort, seeing intriguing plot threads for all of its characters. Audiences are eagerly awaiting The Good Doctor season 7 after season 6 ended with some major cliffhangers.

The Good Doctor Season 7 Story Details

The Good Doctor season 6 ended with several big cliffhangers that should be addressed early in season 7. Viewers should see Lea and Shaun bringing their newborn home, while Shaun inevitably questions Glassman’s reasons for not being present at the birth. San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital will also be dealing with the aftermath of two major losses: Dr. Perez, who has left to receive support for recovery from opioid addiction, and Dr. Andrews, who chose his love for nurse Villanueva over being president of the board.

It seems as though the major plot threads that The Good Doctor will follow will be Shaun transitioning into the role of a father and how the new president will change San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital. Both of these events will shake up Shaun’s life considerably, as he isn’t the best when it comes to facing change and transition. All in all, The Good Doctor season 7 is shaping up to be one of the most dramatic yet.
