ABC announced today that The Good Doctor has been renewed for a third season. The medical drama has continued its strong performance in its sophomore run, ranking as the network's most-watched series and one of its highest-rated among adults 18-49.

Airing Monday nights, the show regularly beats its 10:00pm competition, including NBC's freshman hit Manifest, which has failed to maintain its initially strong momentum.

The Good Doctor stars Freddie Highmore as Dr. Shaun Murphy, a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome who leaves his quiet, country life behind to join the surgical unit at a renowned hospital in San Jose, California. Alone in his new surroundings and not able to form a personal connection with his peers, Dr. Murphy puts his extraordinary medical gifts to use in order to save lives and challenge his skeptical colleagues.

Look for Season 3 of The Good Doctor to premiere this fall as part of ABC's 2019-2020 schedule.
