Season 4 of "The Good Doctor" is coming to the screens this fall, and here is everything you need to know about the ABC medical series.


It seems the year 2020 is going to end on a great note for fans of the ABC medical series, "The Good Doctor," as the much-anticipated season 4 is set to hit the screens this fall. 

After season 3 ended one episode early and on a tragic note with Dr. Neil Melendez, played by Nicholas Gonzalez, passing away from the devastating San Jose earthquake, fans are eager to see what the new season brings.

Season 4 of "The Good Doctor" is set to premiere on Monday, November 2. The series would take its usual spot at 10 p.m. ET on ABC. The first episode will come in a two-part premiere.

According to reports, actress Carly Rope will make a guest appearance in the two-part premiere. She is set to play the role of a woman named Lily.


Following the debut episode, the show would take a break in December and then return in 2021. While it hasn't been announced how many episodes would be in season 4, there are speculations that it will be between 18 to 20 episodes, following previous seasons' trend. 


Unfortunately, not all the cast members of season 3 would return as Gonzalez's character is no more. Also, actress Jasika Nicole who plays Dr. Carly Lever, was announced to have exited the show shortly after the season finale.


However, fans are confident of the return of Freddie Highmore, Antonia Thomas, Hill Harper, Paige Spara, Will Yun Lee, Richard Schiff, Christina Chang, and Fiona Gubelmann, who will all be reprising their roles.

Fans can also expect to see new faces. According to reports, actress Carly Rope will make a guest appearance in the two-part premiere. She is set to play the role of a woman named Lily, whose husband exhibits symptoms of COVID-19.


Rope isn't the only new face to grace the medical show's new season as Summer Brown, Noah Galvin, Brian Marc, and Bria Samoné Henderson are reportedly going to have recurring roles. They will play first-year residents vying for resident positions at St. Bonaventure Hospital, which is set to be a part of the central plotline of season 4.


A series of trailers have been released for the new season, but they were all compiled into a 1 minute 15-second clip uploaded on "The Good Doctor" YouTube page on October 13.

The trailer teases fans with what to expect. It shows that show will discuss the ongoing pandemic as the doctors can be seen in PPE from head-to-toe with their pictures hanging around their neck to help patients connect with them. The love story between Shaun and Lea is also explored as the duo was seen sharing a passionate kiss beside a firetruck.
