Our joy for the debut of season 4 of The Good Doctor did not last long. After the broadcast of its first five episodes, the medical fiction starring Freddie Highmore says goodbye to viewers until next year. Let’s not throw our hands on our heads either, yes, since the sixth episode of the fourth installment already has a date and the wait will not belong. Take note: January 11, 2021, on the American network ABC. In Spain, it can be seen from the hand of AXN.
The season four hiatus of The Good Doctor is a matter of timing. You just have to look back to see that, indeed, charismatic fiction tends to take a break from ‘midseason’ – that’s how they refer to this type of stoppage on the other side of the pond – at this time of year and that the only thing different in 2020 is that the new installment debuted later than usual, a victim of the same delays as everything in this life: the Covid-19 pandemic. Thus, the ‘midseason’ break is far from coinciding with the middle of the current season, but the six-week break for holidays is not taken away by anyone.
For details of the episode, although we know the release date has not yet been advanced or title or synopsis or promo the 4×06 of the Good doctor, so we imagine that we will know more details during his absence. Of course, the creator of the series David Shore had advanced a few things about what to expect from the new episodes of 2021, revealing to Deadline that they would be very focused on exploring the relationship of Shaun (Highmore) and Lea (Paige Spara). Although we did not expect anything else.
Similarly, Freddie Highmore also talked about it with TVLine recently: “I’m not sure Lea wants to sleep on a mattress on the floor forever. They will both be forced into commitments, as we all do in relationships, and that doesn’t have to be a negative thing, necessarily. ”
On the other hand, it seems that the return of the fourth season will be marked by the absence of two characters: Glassman (Richard Schiff) and his wife Debbie (Sheila Kelley). They also couple in real life, as revealed several weeks ago, have had to stay away from the filming set for a while after being diagnosed with Coronavirus and having undergone, in the case of Schiff, a hospital admission fighting against it. virus.
