When Will ‘The Good Doctor’ Season 4 Arrive On ABC?

An natural disaster that happened in the first part of Season 3 finale of The Good Doctor left fans anxious about the fate of Dr. Neil Melendez, who suffered an injury to his abdomen.

Previously, Dr. Neil Melendez was knocked down with minor injuries. After Shaun grew to become trapped within the collapsed brewery whereas serving to a wounded girl, water began dashing in and filling the room. "Lea will hug him and she's going to settle for her love in direction of Shaun", and ended her tweet with #Shea, whereas another added, "hopefully Shaun and Lea find yourself collectively as a pair".

This left numerous doctors at the St Bonaventure Hospital in danger in the aftermath, including Dr Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) who was trapped in a room filling with water. Though she had previously rejected him, hearing him save a woman's life on a walkie-talkie in Episode 20 made her realize her true feelings.

Perhaps the most poignant part of the show occurred when Dr. Melendez was told that he likely wasn't going to live - his internal bleeding had resulted in ischemic bowel disease, which the doctors could not fix.

"I would love to have her back here and there", Shore told TVLine.

Though his new love interest Claire (Antonia Thomas) tried to save him on the operating table, they discovered he had gone into irreversible septic shock.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, show executive producer David Shore said of his decision to kill off Melendez: "I've always felt in running shows that it can't just be, 'Oh my God, is he going to die?! It feels like this is where it should be, and we'll explore that relationship next year as well". "... You go forward [in the show], and people come and go". Things are parceled out little by little, which can be tough for an actor in many ways, and lot of times I'm serving medicine and getting other jobs done when other parts of the character were kind of neglected.

Is there a chance Melendez is still alive?

And Gonzalez isn't the only actor exiting.

The Good Doctor's writers seem to love keeping fans on their toes, which is why we think there could be an ever-so-slight chance that Melendez had slipped into a coma (presumably with death to follow), giving Dr. Murphy just enough time to come up with some one-in-a-million solution to save his life. There were a number of major developments, but we here at Decider will dutifully honor rule one of the time-honored streaming code (thou shall not spoil) for all the cord-cutters still catching up with Season 3 on Hulu.
