Every fall and winter, the biggest networks on TV launch some of their most anticipated new shows, and it is all up the audiences on whether they are hits or not. ABC has built itself one of the best roster of shows, ranging from dramas to comedies to reality shows, but undoubtedly the network’s biggest show for the past decade has been Grey’s Anatomy. Now, ABC is expanding further into medical dramas with their new show The Good Doctor which premieres on Monday, September 25. The Good Doctor has been one of the most promoted new series, and it is already gaining a lot of interest. Here is everything you need to know about the series:
The Good Doctor has actually been in the works for an English television series since 2014 when CBS began developing an American remake of the South Korean drama Good Doctor. The series aired in 2013 in South Korea and only lasted 20 episodes, but it did have strong ratings and was nominated for several awards. After CBS didn’t pick up the American version of the show, it moved to Sony Pictures and in October 2016 ABC committed to a pilot with development from David Shore and Daniel Dae Kim.
