The Good Doctor Plot and Cast
In a post-Season 5 finale interview with TVLine, showrunner David Shore spoke about what fans can expect in Season 6, saying that the immediate focus of the initial episodes will be on the aftermath of Dr. Audrey Lim getting stabbed twice by Owen. Shore also confirmed that Dr. Lim is not going to die from the attack, but is not going to recover easily either.
As he put it: “We don’t do anything that’s not meaningful. As writers, we want to make sure that each story is significant. That’s not saying that we’re going to lose her. We love her. But there are challenges up ahead.” He also added that giving Dr. Lim a physical challenge to overcome was an interesting way to explore the character, given the strength of character she has displayed in the face of other challenges throughout “The Good Doctor.”
Many members of the main cast of “The Good Doctor” are expected to return for Season 6. This includes Freddie Highmore as the show’s main character, Dr. Shaun Murphy, as well as Hill Harper as Dr. Marcus Andrews, Richard Schiff as Dr. Aaron Glassman, Will Yun Lee as Dr. Alex Park, and Paige Spara as Lea Dilallo.
Following the nail-biting Season 5 finale, it was unclear if Christina Chang, who plays Dr. Audrey Lim, and Fiona Gubelmann, who plays Dr. Morgan Reznick, would return for Season 6.
