Good Doctor Showrunners Explain Character’s Death

Co-executive producers David Shore and Liz Friedman spoke out about Dr. Glassman’s death in their interview with Parade. They thought Season 7 was the perfect time for fans and the characters to say goodbye.

“It seemed like a natural place for the story to go,” Friedman explained. “We had [Dr. Glassman] dealt with this illness previously and it just seemed like a real natural thing for us, that a challenge that Shaun would face is the passing of his mentor.”

“It’s very much a parent-child relationship and the show has been very much about Dr. Murphy facing new challenges,” Shore shared. “The biggest one is arguably facing life without a parent. I thought it was a nice way to bookend it.”

Dr. Shaun will have to navigate life on his own. Rumors are swirling that there could be more than one death. Dr. Claire Brown’s (Antonia Thomas) health still has fans wondering if she’s going to live. What are your thoughts on these shocking character deaths?
