The Good Doctor is an American medical-drama series whose first season aired in 2017 on ABC in the United States and CTV in Canada. It is based on a South Korean series of the same name, which was produced in 2013. It revolves around a young surgeon named Shaun Murphy, who is diagnosed with autism and savant syndrome. Having a shattered past, the young man relocates himself from a peaceful life in the countryside to join a highly esteemed hospital’s surgical unit.
He’s alone and initially finds it hard to connect with anybody on a personal level. Though he possesses unparalleled competencies when it comes to work-life, using his extraordinary medical gifts, he saves several lives and challenges the skepticism of his colleagues.
All About its Release
The 2nd episode of The Good Doctor Season 5 is all set to be premiered on October 4, 2021. It is named ‘Piece of Cake,’ which is pretty ironic since nothing about the series makes the episodes an easy walk. After the first episode, named ‘New beginnings,’ the upcoming episode has become the most-awaited and anticipated one. Initially being aired on ABC, the series’ broadcasting rights were soon acquired by Hulu in May 2018.
Since then, all the episodes be it the older ones or the most recent one, have been available to watch on Hulu. The new episodes are made available to stream on Hulu one day after their original release on ABC.
The first episode, titled “New Beginnings,” was aired on September 7, 2021. It was watched worldwide by thousands of people who had been awaiting the new season of the series. It portrayed the rejoicing moments with Shaun and Lea’s wedding hanging ‘round the corner. A case of cancer suddenly comes up from an unknown source found by a single mother in her son, which seems to be presumably a fake one by the end of the episode. Mateo is seen struggling with his previous encounters in America.
Episode 2 of The Good Doctor Season 5 is all set to be streamed on October 4 and, as the promo suggests, is likely to show Shaun and his team put in all their efforts to save the baby of a pregnant woman. The situation will be getting pretty tense, and this case might be a testimony to Shaun’s extraordinary abilities. Meanwhile, the hospital goes through unexpected changes that no one in the office anticipated, and the situation becomes complicated.
The Good Doctor is a great series and is available to watch for free to everybody on abc.com. According to IMDb, with a pretty decent rating of 8.1/10, the show has been a delight to its audiences for the past 4 years and hasn’t failed to meet their expectations even once. The currently ongoing season, which is the fifth season of the series, is also receiving the same amount of love as the first season, and that’s the kind of effect the show has. It never gets old.
