ABC announced today that The Good Doctor has been renewed for a sixth season. The early pickup comes midway through Season 5 of the medical drama, which is continuing to garner respectable ratings for the network on Monday nights.

The series 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.

Season 6 of The Good Doctor will see it surpass the 100-episode milestone. Look for a premiere this fall as part of ABC's 2022-2023 lineup.
