The Good Doctor season 7 release date speculation, cast, plot and news

Shuan went through major life changes in season 6 of the medical drama series, so here's what we know about The Good Doctor season 7 release date and more.

Freddie Highmore as Shaun in The Good Doctor

What is The Good Doctor season 7 release date? After six seasons, there’s a lot that we know about The Good Doctor. We know all about its characters and story, and we know that Shaun is a surgeon; as he loves to tell us.

But when it comes to the upcoming The Good Doctor season 7, there’s plenty that we don’t know about one of the best drama series in the medical world.

How will Shaun react to being a father? How will everyone react to the news of Andrews’ resignation? What medical conundrums will Shaun have to face? Most important of all: what is The Good Doctor season 7 release date and could it be impacted by the 2023 Writers Strike? Here’s the answer to that, if it’ll be on any of the best streaming services, and more.

The Good Doctor season 7 release date speculation

The Good Doctor was renewed for a seventh season in April 2023, but an official release date hasn’t been announced yet. However, we predict Dr. Murphy and his team will return in October 2024.

This estimate is based on the previous production and release schedule for the show, which has seen each new season of The Good Doctor debut in September, October, or November, and then run on until the spring. The only stumbling block is the 2023 strikes, which is why we’re betting on fall 2024.

The Good Doctor season 7 cast speculation

Freddie Highmore, Richard Schiff, Hill Harper, and the rest of the Good Doctor cast are expected to return for season 7.

The big question mark is around actors who played characters with ambiguous endings. For example, now that Danny’s returned to Texas, will we continue to see him in the show, or is his time in the spotlight over? That aside, we have a pretty good idea of who The Good Doctor season 7 cast will include.

Despite his recent meme popularity, there’ll be no Dr. Han.

Possible The Good Doctor season 7 cast list:

  • Freddie Highmore as Dr. Shaun Murphy
  • Richard Schiff as Dr. Aaron Glassman
  • Hill Harper as Dr. Marcus Andrews
  • Will Yun Lee as Dr. Alex Park
  • Fiona Gubelmann as Dr. Morgan Reznick
  • Christina Chang as Dr. Audrey Lim
  • Paige Spara as Lea Dilallo-Murphy
  • Bria Samoné Henderson as Dr. Jordan Allen
  • Noah Galvin as Dr. Asher Wolke
  • Brandon Larracuente as Dr. Danny Perez

What will happen in The Good Doctor season 7?

Based on the events of season 6, The Good Doctor season 7 will have to address the impact of fatherhood on Shaun, exploring how he navigates this while also continuing with his work.

Of course, this also means we’ll get to see his relationship change with Lea, too, watching how their dynamic shifts with the birth of little Steven.

Aside from that, the fallout of Andrews’ resignation will shake things up at the San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital, and Morgan’s similar situation will undoubtedly need some firm resolution. That’s what we’re expecting from the end of season 6, and plenty more plot points will be introduced to keep us on our toes.

Is there a The Good Doctor season 7 trailer?

There is no trailer for The Good Doctor season 7 yet. The trailer will likely drop much closer to the release date, which should be towards the end of 2024.

If production is delayed the way we’re expecting it to be, we think mid-late 2024 is when a season 7 trailer will be released. Until then, there’s plenty of rewatching to do.

Where can I watch The Good Doctor season 7?

While it’s not available to watch yet, The Good Doctor season 7 will be ready to watch on ABC via cable when new episodes drop.

Meanwhile, you can catch up with the previous seasons of the show as well as some of the other best TV series on Hulu.

How many episodes will be in The Good Doctor season 7?

Based on previous seasons, we can expect The Good Doctor season 7 to have around 20 episodes.

However, there could be a snag: if The Good Doctor begins production with the Writers Strike still unresolved, the season could be cut short. We’ve seen this with other shows in the past, and The Good Doctor season 7 could be one of the casualties this time around.
