'The Good Doctor' Season 2 trailer hints that Shaun's job is in jeopardy
Season 1 had ended with a major cliffhanger and the trailer for Season shows that Dr. Shaun Murphy will face the consequences of his slip-up in the first-season finale
The first trailer of ABC's 'The Good Doctor' Season 2 released on Thursday, and fans caught a glimpse of Dr Shaun Murphy dealing with the fallout from his surgical mishap that happened in last March’s finale.
'The Good Doctor' Season 1 ended with two major revelations: that Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff) has cancer and that, distracted by the news about his mentor, Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) made a major mistake in a surgery. Murphy and Glassman were going to admit their mistake to Dr Marcus Andrews (Hill Harper) — and potentially put their jobs in jeopardy. "I was honest; it just made it worse," Murphy says in the trailer.
Adding to that, Andrews, who’s succeeding Glassman as hospital president, doesn’t have any patience for Shaun’s shortcomings, but Jared (departing series regular Chuku Modu), who knows a thing or two about being on Andrews’ bad side, warns Shaun that things won’t be so easy moving forward.
Also seen in the clip is House vet Lisa Edelstein, who comes on board this fall as Glassman’s oncologist Dr Blaize. Glassman, meanwhile, is having something of an identity crisis. “I am damn smart, and I am a damn good surgeon,” he says. “And if I can’t be those things, I don’t know who I’d be.”
Two of the show's central characters will still be around when the ABC hit returns for season two. It was already announced that Fiona Gubelmann (Dr. Morgan Reznick), Will Yun Lee (Dr. Alex Park) and Christina Chang (Dr. Audrey Lim) have all been made full-fledged series regulars. Additionally, Paige Spara, who appeared in the first half of Season 1 as Shaun’s neighbor and love interest Lea, has also been bumped up to series regular.
The Good Doctor returns Monday, Sept. 24, at 10/9c on ABC, following the Season 27 premiere of Dancing With the Stars.
