Freddie Highmore, the interpreter of Doctor Shaun Murphy, has just revealed in Télé 7 jours some secrets of season 4 of the Good Doctor series which promises to be very rich and arrives tonight on TF1.

The series developed by David Shore (who after Dr. House was not really hot to redo a medical series), Good Doctor returns this Wednesday, August 25 on TF1 for its 4th year. Particularly awaited by fans, this season is sure to confuse more than one. It must be said that the writers spared no effort to concoct unexpected twists. The interpreter of Doctor Shaun Murphy, actor Freddie Highmore, has therefore just granted Télé 7 jours a short interview in which he details them, by the menu.

Returning to the death of the character played by Nicolas Gonzalez (Neil Melendez) during the last season, Freddie Highmore reveals to our colleagues that it was a “very moving moment for the team”. Of course, he warns that his “little finger (him) says we’re going to see him again, somehow.” Information which is not really a surprise, however, since we know that the start of Season 4 will be the occasion of two returns.

One of the major information from this interview, therefore, is that there will be a lot of talk about the current pandemic in this season 4 of Good Doctor. And according to Freddie, this is not insignificant: “It’s a way of paying tribute to the real heroes of our daily lives. We pretend to be doctors for the small screen and this lure jumped out at us even more. during the pandemic “.

Moreover, he outbid: “It is a great pride to be able to embody a doctor”. But in addition to the tribute to the medical profession that resulted from it, the Covid epidemic will have another impact on this season 4, an impact that we probably did not see coming and which will certainly upset the balance of the series, or at least Shaun’s certainties. As Freddie Highmore explains: “He who always has the answer to everything, finds himself facing the unknown. He is going to have to learn at the pace of others.” We can’t wait to see it …
