ABC announced today that The Good Doctor has been renewed for a fifth season. The good news comes with five episodes remaining in Season 4 of the medical drama, which has been continuing its strong performance as one of the network's most-watched and highest-rated series.

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 5 of The Good Doctor to premiere this fall as part of ABC's 2021-2022 schedule.
