We haven’t seen The Good Doctor Season 5 since it went on its winter break in 2022. ABC has set the return date, and it’s much earlier than expected.

There were a lot of questions at the end of The Good Doctor back in 2021. We saw Shaun break down after the preventable death of a premature baby. He decided he couldn’t marry Lea, and their wedding was off.

Now we’re wondering what that really means. Will Lea give up on Shaun, or will she realize that he needs her now more than ever before? We’ve had to wait some time for answers to our questions, and the wait is almost over.

The Good Doctor Season 5 return date on ABC

We weren’t expecting The Good Doctor Season 5 to return until spring 2022. That was the original plan, allowing for ABC to bring us a new series, Promised Land. It turns out the new series isn’t performing all that well in the live ratings. It’s up against the Winter Olympics and paired with a terrible season of The Bachelor, what did ABC expect?

Anyway, Promised Land is being pulled after just five episodes. The Good Doctor is coming back early.

We’ll get the new episode on Monday, Feb. 28, according to TVLine. It’s back in the 10/9c timeslot. Of course, this also means it’s not up against the Winter Olympics, which will end this weekend.

We’re certainly ready for the new episodes. What about you?
