Medical Drama lovers and fans, it’s time to add yet another beautiful one to your watch list, or should I say binge list. The Good Doctor season five was released in September and is going to release its third episode soon. The series is inspired by the original South Korean series that goes by the same name. The actor Daniel Dae Kim was the one that originally bought the rights to the series and then, later on, had a deal with Sony.
The series ‘The Good Doctor’ is going to release its third episode of the fifth season on 11 October 2021, as announced by the officials. The series releases its episodes every once a week on Monday. New episodes air on the cable TV channel ABC every week. Those of you who prefer to watch the series online can tune in to Hulu with a subscription to live TV to the channel ABC. Apart from Hulu, one can either rent or purchase the series on Amazon Prime or iTunes, etc.
The basic storyline of the series is described as how a young boy who has autism will navigate his way through a hospital not as a patient but as a doctor. To prove his skills and talents, he’ll have to work twice as hard as others so that people will overlook his condition and look at him for the great doctor that’s in him.

Speculations based on Previous Episodes
Season five, episode three of the series, is titled “Measure of Intelligence.” In the third episode, we’ll most likely see Shaun confronting Salen about the number of changes that have taken place in St. Bonaventure because of her.
One other speculation from this episode can be that Dr. Aaron Glassman will have to take up a job in the hospital that doesn’t really suit him. Basically, he will have to compromise and take up a smaller role since he is forced to do so.
