The Good Doctor season 5 spoilers: Antonia Thomas returning as Claire

The Good DoctorBack when Antonia Thomas first left The Good Doctorit was reported that the door was open for a return. however, we didn’t take that much stock in anything that was said back then — this is the sort of stuff we hear the majority of the time with actor departures, and only a small percentage of the time do they actually come back.

Well, here is where we come bearing some good news. According to TVLine, you will see former series regular Thomas back for a couple of episodes as Claire. She made the decision at the end of last season to take a completely different approach for her career away from the St. Bonaventure Hospital, and we know that her exit had a significant long-term impact. She and Shaun were close, and the two went through some similar experiences on their road to being successful physicians.

So how will Claire’s time in Guatemala changed her? Will she be a different person now than she once was? We’re absolutely curious to learn more about that, in addition to whatever is going on in her personal life. In general terms, though, we’re just happy to have a familiar face back on The Good Doctor again, and that the show is back from what was a pretty-long hiatus. Hopefully, there are going to be new episodes for the majority of the weeks ahead this season.

In the present, we know that one of the main focuses for Shaun, Lim, and some of the other doctors will be working to curtail Salen Morrison. Their jobs have changed dramatically since she first came on board, and not exactly in a good way.
