‘The Good Doctor’ Ending With Season 7 at ABC – WATCH


The Good Doctor will come to an end with Season 7 at ABC. The Freddie Highmore-led medical drama is now the second ABC drama that will end in 2024. As announced in December 2023, Grey’s Anatomy spinoff Station 19 will also end with its seventh season.

The Good Doctor has been a once in a lifetime opportunity, but it’s time to say goodbye,” co-showrunners David Shore and Liz Friedman and executive producer Erin Gunn said in a statement, per The Hollywood Reporter. “We are incredibly proud of the work we’ve done and the message we’ve been privileged to be a part of. We look forward to giving our fantastic fans, the truly extraordinary Freddie Highmore, the rest of our talented actors (and friends), and the best crew in the business the series ending that you all deserve. Thank you, Sony; thank you, ABC; thank you all.”

Highmore, who also executive produces the series, said, “Playing Dr. Shaun Murphy has been an immense privilege and one of the most remarkable and rewarding experiences of my life. I will always be grateful to David, Liz, and Erin as well as the hugely talented — and lovely — cast, writers, and crew who made this show possible. Caring deeply is what got us here. Thank you to Sony and ABC, and to everyone who has watched along at home. With love from Vancouver… tequila, stat!”

The Good Doctor Season 7 premiere is set for Tuesday, February 20 at 10/9c on ABC. Disney Television Group president Craig Erwich expressed the studio’s gratitude for the long-running show.

“Thanks to David Shore and Liz Friedman’s creative direction and anchored by Freddie Highmore’s performance, The Good Doctor has captivated audiences, who have deeply connected with Dr. Shaun Murphy and the staff at San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital,” he said. “As we prepare to finish this beloved story, words cannot express our gratitude for the incredible cast, crew and our partners at Sony and ABC Signature for the lasting impact they’ve made.”

“Years ago when I was doing another show, someone asked, ‘do you know how the show is going to end.’ [He said] Yes, I know exactly how this show will end. One day I will get a call from the network,” said executive producer David Shore during the drama’s panel at Saturday’s Television Critics Tour. “On that show and this show, we’ve been lucky enough to plan the ending we want to do. This has been a weird year. Only doing 10 episodes is unfortunate. [They originally planned for 10]. But being able to go out on your own terms is a blessing.”

“We get to plan a great finale and do something the fans will love,” added EP Liz Friedman, who was loathe to tease what to expect from the final episodes, including which former cast members may or may not return.

“I know that for the rest of my life I am going to have situations where I go, ‘damn, I wish I had Dr. Murphy to write for right now,” said Shore. “There is something about that moment I would want to share with people. I love that character. You want to throw him into any situation and see what he has to say about the rest of us. We always talk about that. When you live with the character as we’ve had, it does make you a better person. I hope so.”

On The Good Doctor, I’ve loved working with David. I have had the honor now of working with him twice; I was at Fox when he did House. David has reinvented the medical franchise twice through signature characters that will always be associated with the best of the genre and the best of television. In the case of The Good Doctor, we wanted to give David and his team the opportunity to write a proper ending to this series which is beloved to ABC viewers and beloved to us as well. It’s been an incredible journey with Dr. Shaun [Murphy]. It’s going to be a very heartfelt farewell, and we’re really looking forward to it.
