The fans of Dr. Shaun Murphy can finally look forward to another season of this medical drama at NBC.

The show stars Freddie Highmore as Dr. Shaun Murphy, who is a young surgeon and he also suffers from autism and savant-syndrome.

As the series enters its third season, the viewers have gotten to know the characters on a deeper level and also in a much more intimate form. But, even then, the show has still stuck to its core theme of exhibiting the professional and personal evolution of Shaun. The third season is promised to bring major changes or his character as the show explores new developments in his love life. Not only his potential new girlfriend won't be the only unfamiliar face, but following Lisa Edelstein's appearance as Dr. Marina Blaize, another House star will appear on the show as a patient.
