Now that we know the release date for Good Doctor season 4, let’s talk about the season in detail. In addition, we shall also see the reviews from the fans.
The Covid As The Backdrop For Season 4
Even before the start of the season, there were a few speculations about the show’s backdrop. Some fans speculated that the ABC show might show covid19. Well, it seems that they were banging on target.
At the start of the show’s premiere, a woman walked into a store and handed a cashier some money before having a coughing fit. Needless to say, the fans could clearly tell that the pandemic was the central focus of the season, at least for episode 1.
Eventually, the woman was taken to the hospital. The concerned woman asked whether she had contracted the virus or not. In answer to that, Dr. Morgan told her that Coronavirus doesn’t cause a sore throat.
Throughout the show, the cast took care of a lot of covid patients. The first episode of the show arguably raised awareness about covid19 at that time.
The Review Of The Season: What Did The Fans Say?
Of course, the Good doctor season 4 was a highly anticipated show in 2020. Despite that, a lot of fans didn’t like the fictional take on the global pandemic. Some of them even took to social media to express their disappointment over the show’s attempt to imitate real-world tragedy caused by the pandemic.
They said, “Glad the show is back but why does Covid have to be in everything?”. However, as an overall season, barring the 1st episode, it was a good one. It had everything that the Good Doctor show had to offer.
