With season 1 of the hit ABC medical drama wrapped up, is The Good Doctor on Netflix?

When The Good Doctor premiered on ABC last fall, no one expected the show to sweep the nation the way it did. Week after week, the medical drama continued to grow in popularity. But now that the season is over and the show takes a well-deserved break before season 2 begins, everyone is wondering, is The Good Doctor on Netflix?

As things stand, any announcements on streaming options for The Good Doctor are still to be announced. Netflix has a history of not streaming ABC shows but Greys Anatomy, another ABC medical show, is available.  Greys Anatomy plugs a gap in the market for Netflix, which has limited medical dramas options and has not produced any of its own. At one time you were able to stream House but that switched over to another streaming competitor.

Is The Good Doctor on Netflix? Our thoughts.

With the lack of medical dramas and no real intent by Netflix to create their own original series, there is a high chance that The Good Doctor will be picked up. Despite the history with ABC shows on Netflix, the network may be open to allowing The Good Doctor to be streamed as the only competition it really has is Greys Anatomy. So it would be a win-win scenario for ABC.

If Netflix did pick up the series the next question would be when? If they follow the same pattern as Greys Anatomy, where the latest season becomes available the summer before the newest season, then season 1 of The Good Doctor would not be available until the summer of 2018. At the latest it would be when season 2 premieres.

Fingers crossed Netflix does pick up the ABC series. It is certainly one in high demand so would make perfect sense for them to do so.
