The ABC drama returns for season 5 tonight as Shaun and Lea celebrate their big news.

The Good Doctor


Season Premiere
The Good Doctor is about to be the married doctor! After last season's finale proposal — by Lea (Paige Spara) to Shaun (Freddie Highmore) — the happy couple is now celebrating their engagement in the premiere. How happy for how long, though? The season 5 trailer shows Lea stressing about wedding planning — but sure it's not as difficult as saving lives, right? Elsewhere, a mother discovers her young son's cancer may have a surprising source, and Mateo (Osvaldo Benavides) hopes the end is near for his legal issues in the U.S.
