Who’s coming back to help us say goodbye to Freddie Highmore’s brilliant, autistic surgeon Dr. Shaun Murphy in The Good Doctor series finale, which begins shooting this March in Vancouver and airs this May on ABC?

The Good Doctor series follows Dr. Shaun Murphy, a young doctor with autism and Savant syndrome who’s recruited into the surgical unit of the prestigious San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital and over the course of seven seasons battles many obstacles to become a valued colleague, teacher, husband and father.

His colleagues:

Richard Schiff as Shaun’s father figure Dr. Aaron Glassman; Christina Chang as Chief of Surgery Dr. Audrey Lim; Will Yun Lee as Dr. Alex Park; Fiona Gublemann as Dr. Morgan Reznick; Chuku Modu as Dr. Jared Kalu; Bria Henderson as Dr. Jordan Allen; Noah Galvin as Dr. Asher Wolke; and Paige Spara as Lea Dilallo, the Head Director of St. Bonaventure’s IT Department and Shaun’s wife and mother of their son Steve.

Who’s back for the series finale?

OG surgical resident Dr. Claire Browne, played by Antonia Thomas, returns for the series finale (and one other season 7 episode), reports TVLine.
