ABC is gifting their viewers more of The Good Doctor and A Million Little Things. The network decided to hand out both shows renewals for one additional season, so we will get to see The Good Doctor return for season three while A Million Little Things will return for season two. The popular reality show Shark Tank was also renewed for 11th season.
Prior to this, ABC announced they would bring back Agents of SHIELD for season seven, even though the series had troubles with ratings in the recent months.
The Good Doctor, which is an adaptation of South Korean series of the same name, tells the story about young autistic who becomes a resident at San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital. The show managed to make quite of an impression during its first season, averaging 15.61 million viewers. The second season saw a slight dip in the ratings, but the series remained ABC’s second-highest-rated drama behind Grey’s Anatomy.
A Million Little Things is only halfway through its first season, but the network is obviously pleased with its performance since it became their best rated new show. The series follows a group of friends who experience a shocking moment after their close friend decides to take his own life.
Shark Tank has been a steady performer for ABC since its premiere in 2009, so the renewal doesn’t come as a big surprise. The show features young entrepreneurs as they pitch their business ideas to a panel of investors.
