The Good Doctor Season 4, June 7, 2021 Episode 20 Is The Finale. Season 5 Is Happening
Hey, “The Good Doctor” fans. We are back on here, today, to give you one, last “The Good Doctor” article for season 4, because for those of you who don’t yet know, tonight’s episode 20 is indeed the last episode for The Good Doctor’s current season 4. I know, I know. It’s a bummer, but there is some good news in all of this.
We have learned from the folks over at TV line that ABC did indeed renew The Good Doctor for a brand new season 5! That’s right, guys. You can totally expect to get blasted with a whole new set of season 5 episodes during the 2021/2022 season.
Currently, we’re unsure how many episodes season 5 will offer up. We presume that the new season 5 will start up sometime this Fall 2021. We will have to wait for ABC to release their Fall 2021 schedule to be absolutely sure. That’s expected to happen later this summer. So, keep your eyes peeled for that very important announcement.
ABC renewed The Good Doctor for a new season 5 back in early May 2021. So, that was sort of an early renewal. Some other very interesting news about The Good Doctor we’ve just learned from TV Line is that Antonia Thomas ,who plays character Dr. Claire Browne, has decided to leave the show after season 4. So, she will not be back for season 5.
Antonia did give a statement about her The Good Doctor departure saying,”I think, ultimately, for me, it’s about coming to the point where I think we’ve really run the gamut of different things that Claire can have gone through. I’m now really excited to explore different creative opportunities.”
Even though Antonia is leaving the show ,right now, she did indicate that should would be open to reprising her role as Dr. Claire Browne on a recurring basis because that would give her more time to explore other opportunities. She stated, “Really for me, if there was more time in the year to be able to shoot the show and to be able to go off and do some of the other things that I’m wanting to explore now, I’d do both.
It has not been an easy decision for me to leave. So, I absolutely would love to come back every now and then and say hi. I’m very much looking forward to that.”
Antonia also revealed that she had started expressing leaving the show ever since season 3 ended. At that time, she spoke with executive producer David Shore and told him, “I started airing my feelings that I have loved exploring Claire and would love to explore Claire for another season, but after that, how would he feel about bringing the character to a close. We talked through how we might be able to do that, and came to the decision that it was the right thing.”
Antonia also talked about the journey that her character Claire has gone through stating, “Claire has really been through extraordinary ups and downs. She’s dealt with huge personal growth, a lot of trauma.
She has developed to a place where she finally comes to a place of peace with herself, and she’s finally got to a place of a reconciliation with her father, which was painful but needed. And then, finding with that a case of stillness and acceptance of herself and a space to really think what does she want and where does she want to go next.”
