Release Date for Season 5 Episode 1 of The Good Doctor
In June 2021, the 4th season of ‘The Good Doctor’ came to an end. ABC renewed the sitcom for a 5th season on May 4, 2021, about a month before the season 4 finale aired.
The preceding season ran in an unusual timeframe, from November to June, due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Fans will be relieved to discover that with the forthcoming season, the show will return to its regular September to March airing schedule.
Season 5 of ‘The Good Doctor’ will premiere on ABC on September 27, 2021.
The fifth instalment began filming on August 16, 2021, and is slated to be completed by the end of April 2022.
After his initial contract with Sony Pictures Television (the show’s parent studio) expired at the end of season 4, showrunner David Shore renewed his overall deal with the studio in May.
As a result, viewers can expect another incredibly emotional and heartwarming season with Shore at the helm.
