What to expect from The Good Doctor Season 4

The show will start with a two-parter about COVID-19. The official synopsis for the first part of "Frontline" reads: "Dr. Shaun Murphy treats a patient with an illness that is not only unpredictable in nature, but also unlike anything he or the team at San Jose St. Bonaventure has ever seen before. As safety protocols and quarantines increase due to the global pandemic, Lea and Shaun's new relationship will become tested; and Dr. Alex Park gets ready to move back to Phoenix, Arizona, to be closer to his family."

The second part logline, meanwhile, is, "Dr. Shaun Murphy and Dr. Marcus Andrews determine that their patient has been infected with COVID-19. As they struggle to understand and get ahead of a constantly evolving virus, Shaun has a hard time balancing his fears and concerns about potentially jeopardizing Lea's health and wanting to be with the woman he loves. Meanwhile, Claire looks for a way to grieve Melendez's death through her patients."

After this COVID-themed double bill, the show will get to its main Season 4 plot, which sees a batch of new residents join the hospital. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, The Good Doctor's creator David Shore said: "I'm always excited to see Dr. Murphy in a new context, and I know Freddie is, too. So, that's exciting. And that new context being these new kids, these first-year residents who are where Shaun was three years ago. I think we've got some really interesting characters there. I think they're very real people that the audience will find compelling and enjoy spending time with."

The Good Doctor Season 4 starts on Monday, November 2 on ABC.
