Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by David Shore and Daniel Dae Kim, THE GOOD DOCTOR is a one-hour drama series that centers on Dr. Shaun Murphy, a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, who relocates from a quiet country life to join the prestigious St. Bonaventure hospital's surgical unit. Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, his only advocate, Dr. Aaron Glassman, challenges the skepticism and prejudices of the hospital's board and staff when he brings him in to join the team. Shaun will need to work harder than he ever has before, as he navigates his new environment and relationships to prove to his colleagues that his extraordinary medical gifts will save lives.

Season 2 of THE GOOD DOCTOR premiered on Monday, September 24, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT on ABC. Fiona Gubelmann, Will Yun Lee, Christina Chang, and Paige Spara have been promoted to series regulars for Season 2. In the season opener, "Hello," Shaun's proposed treatment for a homeless patient puts him and Jared in Andrews' crosshairs. Meanwhile, Claire tries to overcome Melendez's reluctance to do a risky heart operation while Glassman must overcome his personal feelings about his oncologist, Dr. Marina Blaize (new recurring guest star Lisa Edelstein), and face a difficult decision about his health.
