Good Doctor Season 4 Promo: Shaun and Lea Navigate a Socially Distanced Relationship Amid Ongoing Pandemic
Dr. Shaun Murphy speaks for us all when he says he wants this pandemic to be over in TVLine's exclusive first look at the season four premiere of The Good Doctor.
In the above promo, which consists of all of the new scenes from the COVID two-part two-parter (which will air on Monday, November 2nd at 9/10), the new couple Shaun and Lea are in a socially distant long-distance relationship. First, let's watch them share good mornings through Zoom. In another scene we see them sitting on opposite sides of Shaun's front door.
The video also shows how the doctors in St. Bonaventure are coping with the coronavirus crisis. Shaun, Claire, Morgan, Lim, and Andrews wear personal protective equipment as they work on patients suffering from respiratory and cardiovascular side effects caused by the virus.
Despite the premiere's focus on COVID-19, executive producer David Shore revealed on Sunday's New York Comic Con virtual panel that season four will not get into the pandemic in the following episodes.
"On the one hand, we have to take care of it," he said. "We wanted to pay tribute to the front workers ... But we've lived with it so much, sooooo much in the last six months. I think we, as entertainers, have a responsibility to offer a little escape.
"The rest of the season won't be over COVID," he continued. "We're not going to be dishonest ... there will be an awareness of it, but these are not the stories we're going to tell."
As previously reported, the series is adding several returning guest stars this season, including Noah Galvin (The Real O'Neals) as first-year resident Dr. Asher cloud. The cast comes after the Freddie Highmore-directed ABC medical drama says goodbye to two regulars at the end of season three, including original cast member Nicholas Gonzalez (who portrayed Dr. Neil Melendez) and Jasika Nicole (who was Shaun's former girlfriend, Carly played)).
Hit PLAY on the new promo at the top and hit the comments with your hopes for The Good Doctor's return.
