The promo asks whether Shaun Murphy will find love

Fans of The Good Doctor have been waiting since season 1 for Dr. Murphy to find love and happiness. The promo poses the question of whether Murphy will indeed find love this season.

Murphy faced many obstacles and challenges in the second season of The Good Doctor. But he overcame them and finally got his job back as a surgeon. The finale even showed Murphy asking Carly on a date, and she accepted, to the delight of fans.

As the promo confirms, the date is going to happen between the pair. The 15-second teaser is enough to tide fans over until the season premiere. We also see Dr. Glassman (Richard Schiff) and Dr. Melendez’s (Nicholas Gonzalez) team eagerly awaiting news about how the date went.

Jasika Nicole will be a regular for season 3

Nicole will be a regular in the upcoming season of the ABC drama series. Clearly this is good news for Murphy and Carly shippers. In the season finale, viewers saw Murphy all dressed up in a suit with flowers ready to ask someone out on a date. Fans thought it might be his roommate, Lea (Paige Spara), but to the surprise of everyone, he goes to Carly’s house and asks her out on a date.

Executive producer David Shore explained to TVLine why Murphy asked out Carly as opposed to Lea. “The audience wants to see Shaun with Lea [together], and I kind of do, too, but we’ll see where that goes,” explained Shore. “At a certain point, I was going, ‘Oh, the audience is going to hate me for not having him ask Lea out,’ but then I thought just seeing him ask anybody out — and Carly is someone we care about, and somebody who cares about Shaun — is going to be a lovely victory. All [of those romantic pairings] are on the table and continue to be on the table as we go forward.”

When will ‘The Good Doctor’ season 3 premiere?

Fans won’t have to wait that much longer to check back in with all of their favorite doctors at the hospital. Season 3 will premiere on September 23 at 10 p.m. E.S.T. in its usually scheduled time slot. Viewers can expect to see Murphy and Carly’s date, with hopefully many more to come in the future. Considering Nicole has been promoted to a series regular, things look good for the two to find love this season. Fans will have to tune in to find out.
