ABC announced today that The Good Doctor has been picked up for a fourth season. The medical drama has been continuing its strong performance in Season 3, ranking as one of the network's most-watched and highest-rated series. A Monday night staple, the show regularly bests its competition week in and week out.

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 4 of The Good Doctor to premiere in the fall as part of ABC's 2020-2021 schedule.
