The Good Doctor Is Returning For Season 3 on ABC
The Good Doctor is coming back for Season 3, according to the official announcement, which has been published by ABC on the show's official Twitter page on February 5, 2019. Needless to say that The Good Doctor has become a hit back in 2017, during its debut season premiere. However, it's worth noting that in its 2nd installment the medical drama has lost over a third of its target audience (-34.49%). No particular release date for the upcoming round has been announced so far.

As mentioned above, the viewing audience of the show has decreased in its sophomore installment. The Good Doctor Season 2 has drawn 7.348 million viewers with a 1.29 key demographic indicator among adults (P18-49). Nonetheless, in the season finale, the viewership has jumped up to 7.779 million viewers.
