The Good Doctor is going to return next month on ABC for series four. The majority of the cast will be coming back for the new episodes, minus a couple of characters. Series three’s finale is bound to have long-term repercussions for some of the staff at St. Bonaventure Hospital.
WARNING: This article contains spoilers from The Good Doctor.
Series three of The Good Doctor said goodbye to Dr Carly Lever (played by Jasika Nicle), Dr Shaun Murphy’s (Freddie Highmore) first girlfriend.
She broke up with him after realising he was actually in love with Lea Dilallo (Paige Spara).
But even more shockingly, Dr Neil Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez) was killed off in the finale after he suffered septic shock as a result of rubble falling onto him in the aftermath of the earthquake.
But the drama in series three also led to another character considering their future at the hospital.

Speaking to TV Insider, creator David Shore opened up about Alex being in the latest series.
When asked if Alex has left, Shore explained: “Not yet, though in the premiere, he’s still planning to move.
“Touched by a boy he treated at the quake site whose father wasn’t with him, Park really wants to connect with Kellan, whom he sees infrequently.
“His plans, however, are stalled by the COVID-19 crisis.”
Will Alex still want to make the big move or will he decide to stay at the hospital after all to help everyone through the pandemic?
