ABC renews The Good Doctor and one other show
Renewals are starting to come in. ABC is adding more to its 2022–2023 lineup in the form of The Good Doctor and one more show.
It’s the time of the year for networks to think about the futures of their shows. ABC hasn’t made too many decisions up to this point. Up to this point, we knew Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 would return in the 2022–2023 season. Now it’s time to make a few more decisions.
ABC has renewed two more shows for the next season. The renewals are arguably not all that surprising, but they’re great news for the fans.
The Good Doctor Season 6 is happening
The first of the renewals is The Good Doctor. The Monday night medical drama is coming back for a sixth season. Considering it’s the top drama in its timeslot, this isn’t too surprising at all.
We had been on the fence about this one, though. That’s only because the show can’t go on without Freddie Highmore, and there is always the chance he’ll decide he’s had enough. Fortunately, he’s sticking around for another season.
The Rookie Season 5 is happening
The other renewal is The Rookie. The Sunday night cop dramedy doesn’t do all that well in the live ratings, but it is consistent on Sunday nights. We’re certainly not complaining about it coming back.
The renewal isn’t surprising, though. The show has an FBI spin-off in the works, with a two-hour backdoor pilot happening soon.
Both shows are expected to be part of the fall 2022 schedule and will likely keep their respective nights.
