Have no fear, the doctor is in — but not for long. The Good Doctor Season 7 finale is on the horizon, and then the show will be over for good.

Shaun Murphy has grown up to become a well-established doctor and character since the series first aired in 2017. As one of the best TV series, it follows the autistic doctor as he begins his residency while dealing with scrutiny and peer pressure while trying to prove himself worthy of the ER.

But the time is approaching when fans have to say goodbye. The Good Doctor Season 7 was announced to be the last. Shaun has come a long way with the guidance of Dr. Aaron Glassman, his friends, and family. Not to mention getting married and becoming a father.

With Season 7 keeping tabs on his journey and the hospital’s riveting medical cases, when can you expect the next episode to air?

When is the next episode of The Good Doctor Season 7 out?

The Good Doctor Season 7 finale will premiere on May 21, 2024, at 10pm EST on ABC.

After a brief hiatus in April, The Good Doctor’s tenth and final episode in Season 7 will air this week as scheduled. The new episode is titled ‘Goodbye’, and will see the doctors looking to the future as their time together comes to an end.

The Good Doctor went through a small hiatus and has been a shorter season than others. Why the long wait? The shorter season and long wait are likely due to the writer’s strike that delayed multiple productions. Not only was The Good Doctor affected but other hit series like The Rookie and 9-1-1.

Is The Good Doctor Season 8 happening?

No, The Good Doctor Season 7 will be the final season of the medical drama series.

In early January, The Hollywood Reporter announced the series would come to an end and so would Shaun’s story.

“The Good Doctor has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but it’s time to say goodbye,” said co-showrunners David Shore and Liz Friedman about the series.

Freddie Highmore has played the leading role of Shaun Murphy since its inception and has worked as an executive producer for the series.

“Playing Dr. Shaun Murphy has been an immense privilege and one of the most remarkable and rewarding experiences of my life. I will always be grateful to David, Liz, and Erin as well as the hugely talented — and lovely — cast, writers, and crew who made this show possible. Caring deeply is what got us here. Thank you to Sony and ABC, and to everyone who has watched along at home. With love from Vancouver … tequila, stat!” said the actor about departing The Good Doctor.

While fans still have episodes of The Good Doctor to wait for, Grey’s Anatomy holds strong with new episodes and a new season. You can also check out other series to stream this month.
