What To Expect From The Good Doctor Season 5?

In The Good Doctor Season 5, Dr. Shaun Murphy, played by Freddie Highmore, will be seen attending his cases, some of them being very challenging ones.

On the personal front, he will be seen getting ready to tie the knot. Lea, played by Paige Spara, proposes to Shaun in Guatemala, and he says yes. After returning home, they announce the big news to their colleagues and celebrate the event with an emotional engagement party.

Meanwhile, all the preparations for the wedding have had Lea completely overwhelmed. She is under a lot of pressure as she wants everything to be just perfect.

After coming out of a disastrous marriage, Lea’s concern is entirely justifiable. The Season 5 teaser even shows Lea having a panic attack in the middle of the night, with Shaun simply asking her if the wedding was still on, to which she replies yes.
