But will they hire a guy with autism?
When will the episode “Good Doctor Season 4” be released?
The sequel to The Good Doctor, a multi-part medical drama, is scheduled for release on November 2, 2020. Despite the fact that viewers expected to see new episodes in September 2020, coronavirus made its own adjustments to the film premieres. Thus, the production of the TV series “The Good Doctor” was frozen for the period of the pandemic. Hence the postponement of the release of season 4 to the next year. The ratings of the project are stable and do not portend the closure of the series.
Actors do an excellent job with the task and even experienced doctors are condescending to some mistakes in their field, because the plot does not leave anyone indifferent.
When Shaun was a child, his father could not understand why his son is so different from others. The man vented his anger with his fists, moreover, not only on his wife, but also on his own children. It went to Shaun, and then to everyone who stood up for him. One day, my father threw a rabbit sitting peacefully on Shaun’s lap into the wall. The animal could not stand such a flight and died in a veterinary clinic.
This incident has long been remembered by Shaun. Then a new series of beatings from the father followed. Then the younger brother took the older one and they went away from their home. One day, when there was no sign of trouble, Shaun’s younger brother fell from a great height and died. So the guy saw another death, which became decisive in his life.
Suffering autism, Shaun also combined another disease. Savant syndrome is an autistic condition in which a person is able to use his own “Islands of Genius”. Developing medical skills, Shaun achieved tremendous success and was able to establish himself in the best possible way. Then he met with Dr. Aaron Glassman, who 10 years later called the guy to his hospital.
Having staked his own career and reputation, Aaron Glassman convinced the hospital’s board of directors to hire Shaun Murphy as a surgeon. At first, things didn’t go so smoothly, because autism just can’t get out of it. But soon Shaun began to trust serious operations, with which he coped without much difficulty.
For the past 3 seasons, Shaun has been proving his worth and, together with his colleagues, is fighting for the health of patients. Will he be able to continue to restrain the anger of his enemies or still fall into the trap that they cleverly set for him? The fourth season will put everything in its place, as well as tell you more about the future life of other characters.

- Dr. Aaron Glassman – head physician of the hospital; used to work in the city where the Murphy family lived, but then moved to another city, where he called for Shaun; strongly supports the guy and believes that he has more prospects than healthy doctors, since the latter are not as interested in saving lives as Shaun – Richard Schiff.
