Plenty of television shows are about to make a comeback in the fall, and "The Good Doctor" is one of them, with a third season that promises to surprise its fans.
Thanks to a photo posted on the show's official Twitter page, fans learned not only that their favorite characters will be returning to TV but also that Dr. Shaun Murphy has grown a beard.
At least Freddie Highmore did, however, it is unknown whether the character will also have a beard. Nevertheless, some fans asked for the actor to keep the facial hair.
SHOWING OFF THE NEW LOOK
In the photo, Highmore can be seen posing for the camera with co-stars Antonia Thomas, Hill Harper, Paige Spara and Tamlyn Tomita, all ready to go back to work.
Highmore revealed that he would be directing an episode in the third season
Although they were not in the photo, it is believed that cast members Richard Schiff, Fiona Gublemann, Christina Chang, Nicholas Gonzalez and Will Yun Lee are also expected to return to the set.
A BRAND NEW WORLD FOR DR. SHAUN
So far, little is known about the upcoming season of "The Good Doctor," which ended with Dr. Shaun asking Carly, played by actress Jasika Nicole, out on a date.
It will be the doctor's first experience when it comes to dating and it has been reported that the writers of the show will be exploring how someone with autism, like Dr. Shaun, deals with a concept such as dating.
Highmore, who is also famous for playing the role of Norman Bates in "Bates Motel," alongside horror queen Vera Farmiga, revealed that he would be directing an episode in the third season.
A BIG RESPONSIBILITY
The actor has co-written and directed episodes of the show in the past and used that opportunity to raise awareness for autism and the spectrum while showing a different side of masculinity.
