While it may not be at the forefront of the entertainment world, the medical drama is still very much a fixture of the small screen world. For evidence of this, look no further than the fact that “The Good Doctor” isn’t the only series of its kind still going strong in the 2020s. First and foremost, one of the most widely-adored medical dramas of all time, “Grey’s Anatomy” — despite the departure of Ellen Pompeo — is gearing up for a landmark 20th season, with Season 19 slated to wrap up in May 2023.
Additionally, another drama focused on saving lives on the operating table by the name of “Chicago Med” is also on track to continue well into the future. The Dick Wolf and Matt Olmstead-created show was renewed for a ninth season in April 2023, just over a week before “The Good Doctor” Season 7 received the green light. This came as part of a massive three-series renewal that also saw “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.” approved for Season 12 and Season 11, respectively, keeping the One Chicago saga alive and well.
“The Good Doctor” Season 6 will conclude on May 1, with Season 7 expected to reach ABC sometime in the future.
