The Good Doctor is making a comeback after the turbulent ride of season four earlier this year. The ABC drama depicts the life of talented young doctor Shaun Murphy (played by Freddie Highmore) both professionally and personally with the upcoming season expected to be one of the most emotional yet. Here’s everything you need to know about who’s joining the cast of series five.

Who is in the cast of The Good Doctor season 5?

Asher Wolke – Noah Galvin

Asher was introduced in the third episode of season four as one of the first-year surgical residents.

He is the openly gay son of a Hasidic Rabbi who decided to leave his community to go to medical school and became an atheist.

Actor Noah Galvin has since been upped to a series regular after his appearances in the latest season.

The 27-year-old actor is best known for playing Kenny O’Neal in ABC’s The Real O’Neals and also performed as the titular character in the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen.

Mateo Rendón Osma – Osvaldo Benavides

Having starred in only the two-part season four finale, actor Osvaldo Benavides will be back full-time in The Good Doctor when it returns.

He will be reprising his role as Dr Mateo Rendon Osma who fans met when the team went to Guatemala and had a brief romance with Audrey Lim (Christina Chang).

Actor Benavides is a Mexican actor who starred in Netflix’s drama Monarca which debuted in 2019.

Some of his other work includes Dust to Dust, La bella y las bestias and The Perfect Dictatorship.

Jordan Allen – Bria Samoné Henderson

Another familiar face who has been promoted to series regular is actress Bria Samoné Henderson.

She portrayed Jordan Allen, a passionate first-year surgical student who stood up to both Lim and Marcus Andrews (Hill Harper) when she didn’t believe in doing something.

Henderson is very new when it comes to the world of acting, according to her IMDB page.

She only has a few shorts to her name, as well as the mini-series Mrs America where she played Margaret Sloan.

Of course, the main recurring cast will also be back for season five of The Good Doctor.

This includes the likes of Highmore, Spara, Morgan Reznick’s Fiona Gubelmann, Alex Park’s Will Yun Lee, Aaron Glassman’s Richard Schiff, Chang and Harper.

At the end of season three, original star Nicholas Gonzalez who played Neil Melendez was killed off after getting sepsis.

He expressed his love for Claire Browne (Antonia Thomas) just before he died and now she has also made her exit.

Claire decided to stay in Guatemala to continue the good work she was doing at the hospital.

She had experienced plenty of tragedy over the past couple of seasons with the deaths of Melendez and her mum in season three.

But actress Thomas hasn’t ruled out making a cameo appearance in the future so perhaps this isn’t the last we see of Claire after all.

The Good Doctor season 5 will premiere on Monday, September 27, 10/9c on ABC in the USA. A UK release date is yet to be announced.
