Fans of the ABC show 'The Good Doctor' are going to be in for quite the romantic ride as the third season of the show continues. At least that's what Freddie Highmore, who plays Dr. Shaun Murphy, says!

What happened at the end of season two?

The season 2 finale of 'The Good Doctor' left fans in a cliffhanger as Dr. Shaun was successfully reinstated as a surgical resident.

However, the highlight of it was when his love life took a new turn. After suffering so much emotional pain from his work life, Shaun got a break when he asked the woman he loves, Dr. Carly Lever, on a date, and she said yes.

Shaun's romantic journey in season 3

Season 3 premiere of the show gave fans an insight into how Shaun and Carly's date went and showed that he scored a goodnight kiss at the end of the night.

As expected, this left fans curious about how the romantic journey of Shaun would play out as the season continues. Luckily, their thirst was quenched when Freddie Highmore gave details of what's to come in an interview.

He then explained that the choice to relay Shaun's love life was because the show wanted to break the stereotype of people living with autism being void of emotions.

Freddie also mentioned that Shaun and Carly's love story would be played out slowly over the season.

"Things are taken step-by-step on this show, little-by-little."
