Fans tuning in to ABC on December 7 might be disappointed to find out that there is no new episode of 'The Good Doctor' airing this week. After that glaring mistake from the titular doctor Shaun Murphy in placing too much autonomy in his new junior residents, anticipation peaks regarding both the aftermath and the consequences he must face. Sadly, we can't find out all about that, not just yet.

Wondering why 'The Good Doctor' Season 4 Episode 6 is not airing this week? And when it will return? Read on to find out all about it.

The reason there is no new episode of 'The Good Doctor' Season 4 this week is that the ABC medical drama decided to go on its designated Winter Break following last week's Episode 5 titled 'Fault'. The infamous Winter Break or mid-season break is usually induced to give fans and viewers time to catch up and enjoy the holidays with family. Television networks know you're not going to spend these few days glued to the screen after spending practically this whole year doing the same.  

But rest assured that the season is far from over and the network has already teased when we can expect the show to return. Although not much information is out yet on the hushed up Winter Premiere, 'The Good Doctor Season 4 is expected to return with its latter half of episodes in January 2021. In that, the yet-to-be-named Episode 6 of Season 4, if everything goes according to plan, will air on Monday, January 11, at 10 pm ET/PT only on ABC. 

There's no official synopsis teased for the upcoming Winter Premiere either, so right now, speculations run rife based on the developments of the mid-season finale. On one hand, there's Shaun's ever thrilling relationship with Lea that we have to watch out for. After losing his first-ever patient on the surgery table, Shaun returned home to find comfort in her arms so things seem much more stable between the two now. The same can't be said for Claire Browne who's still rummaging through the trauma and loss of Neil Melendez at the end of Season 3. On the other hand, there are sparks flying between Morgan Reznick and Alex Park and even though fans would like the show to explore the platonic relationship, they are going the Claire and Neil slow burn route and evolving into a romance. So there's that sex scene to watch out for.

'The Good Doctor' Season 4 airs on Mondays at 10 pm only on ABC.
