We’re starting to learn premiere dates for our favorite TV shows. ABC is the latest network to announce dates, and The Good Doctor Season 5 is on the list.
We knew The Good Doctor Season 5 was going to be part of the fall 2021 schedule. It’s keeping the Monday timeslot that has done so well for it from the beginning. None of this was ever surprising.
What we had to wait for was the premiere date. ABC has now released the full list of premiere dates, with Deadline sharing them all. The Good Doctor is on the list, and we’re definitely not waiting as long as we did for Season 4.
Most of the premiere dates are in September, which is normal for the fall schedule. That means we’re looking at filming happening as normal, although do be aware that there may be changes here and there for some shows.
When is The Good Doctor Season 5 premiering on ABC?
How long will we have to wait for the new episodes? The Good Doctor Season 5 will premiere on Monday, Sept. 27. It’s a week after the premiere of Dancing with the Stars new season.
The fifth season is going to see a few changes here and there. The biggest one is the loss of an original cast member. Antonia Thomas isn’t returning for the fifth season of the medical drama. We learned about this back in June, just before the finale, although plans had been in the works since the end of Season 3. It gave us a chance to say goodbye to the character as Dr. Claire Brown left for a new adventure on the series.
All others are sticking around, and we’ll get to see what this means for everyone when The Good Doctor Season 5 premieres in September.
The Good Doctor Season 5 premieres on Monday, Sept. 27 at 10/9c on ABC. Catch up the following day on Hulu.
