A trailer released a few weeks ago promised The Good Doctor two-part season finale was going to be a dramatic one and it surely did live up to this. The last shocking scene which aired yesterday (Monday, March 30) revealed the long-term aftermath of the tragic earthquake. However, fans are now questioning if the ABC drama is going to return with another series. Here’s everything you need to know about the future of The Good Doctor.
Warning: This article contains spoilers from The Good Doctor season 3 finale.
At the end of the first half of the series three finale, it looked like Dr Shaun Murphy (played by Freddie Highmore) was in danger as he and the women he was trying to save were trapped in a room with water rapidly filling it up.
Thankfully though, he wasn’t the one to be killed off and despite their previous arguments, best friend Lea Dilallo (Page Spara) was there waiting for him.
He had previously confessed his love for her but she said they couldn’t be together because of his autism.
However, when she saw he was safe, she kissed him and said: “You make me more”, hinting at a future relationship.
Meanwhile, Dr Morgan Reznick’s (Fiona Gubelmann) future could be in jeopardy.

As someone was dying, she quickly realised she was the only person nearby who could perform surgery on them in a bid to save their life.
She took on the operation but fans are not sure at what cost as earlier in the series she had a surgery for her rheumatoid arthritis and was very much still healing from the procedure.
Dr Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff) then told her how this may have cost her ability to perform surgery again, having traumatised her joint incisions.
There was also a hint Dr Alex Park (Will Yun Lee) could be leaving the hospital for good.
After dramatics scenes were shown with him and a dying teenager, he admitted he wanted to be closer to his family, potentially indicating he wants to leave the job behind.
However, the major trauma of the season three finale came right at the end of the episode.
In the penultimate episode, Dr Neil Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez) collapsed after being hit by rubble and ended up in hospital with ischemic bowel.
Fans assumed he didn’t suffer any serious injuries as him and Dr Claire Browne (Antonia Thomas) declared their love for one another as he laid in the hospital bed.
But tragically in the final few moments of the show, Dr Melendez unexpectedly died from his injuries.
The Good Doctor series three ended with a devastated Claire sobbing by his bedside.

Thankfully, The Good Doctor has already been renewed for a fourth series.
ABC announced there would be another season last month to fans’ delight so they will be able to find out what happened next following the devastating earthquake.
An official release date has not yet been announced for season four but the previous series all started on the penultimate Monday of September.
So potentially, The Good Doctor might return on Monday, September 21.

In a statement, ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke said: “The Good Doctor has been a cornerstone on Monday nights and is one of those special heartfelt series that fearlessly tackles inclusivity.
“David Shore’s thoughtful storytelling, combined with an incredible cast led by Freddie Highmore’s nuanced performance as Dr Shaun Murphy, are what have made this series a breakout hit over the past three seasons, and I’m excited to see where they take us next.”
