Get ready to see a lot more Carly. TVLine reports Jasika Nicole has been promoted to series regular for season three of The Good Doctor.
Nicole plays Dr. Carly Lever on the ABC TV show, which also stars Freddie Highmore, Antonia Thomas, Nicholas Gonzalez, Chuku Modu, Beau Garrett, Hill Harper, Tamlyn Tomita, Christina Chang, Will Yun Lee, Paige Spara, and Richard Schiff.
The Good Doctor creator David Shore told TVLine fans can expect further complications for Shaun’s (Highmore) love life in season three:
The audience wants to see Shaun with Lea [together], and I kind of do, too, but we’ll see where that goes. At a certain point, I was going, ‘Oh, the audience is going to hate me for not having him ask Lea out,’ but then I thought just seeing him ask anybody out — and Carly is someone we care about, and somebody who cares about Shaun — is going to be a lovely victory. All [of those romantic pairings] are on the table and continue to be on the table as we go forward.”
Season three of The Good Doctor premieres on ABC on September 23rd at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
