Will Highmore Direct Any Episodes of Season 3 of The Good Doctor?
Last season, series star Highmore not only directed an episode of The Good Doctor, he wrote the premiere as well. In a new interview with Deadline, the actor shared that he’s eager to do both again this year. “Hopefully I’ll write an episode later in the year,” he said. “I’m definitely directing again.”
What Will Happen With Shaun in Season 3 of The Good Doctor?
Asking Carly out is no small thing, and that’s definitely something that Shore is eager to explore in the new season. In his interview with EW, Shore noted that season two was about Shaun taking care of his mentor Glassman. In season three he’s going to be tackling another form of intimacy that he’s never experienced before. “We’re putting him in the role of suitor,” the showrunner said. He elaborated, “I want to explore all those landmarks that happen in all our lives as we grow up and just explore it through his eyes, which really aren’t that different, ultimately. So I think next season, that’s going to be a lot of what we’re looking at — his social life and him growing as a man who wants to be loved.”
Shore warned that the path to love won’t be any easy one for the doctor. Shaun is going to experience “successes” in the realm of dating, but there will be failures, too, and seeing how he handles those is sure to lead to some meaty material for Highmore.
