The Hospital SeriesThe Good Doctor’ continues to be hugely popular on Netflix – even after the release of the third season in May, the series about the highly talented autistic surgeon Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) pushed back into the top 10 most watched content on Netflix Germany.
However, Netflix is a few years behind – the last “new” episodes published there are from 2019, in the USA, on the other hand, seasons 4 and 5 are already over, and in October 2022 the start of season 6 of “The Good Doctor” on.
But fortunately Netflix is not the only streaming provider in Germany that “The Good Doctor“ has in the program – and the competition is definitely ahead, because there you can already watch the 38 (!) other episodes of seasons 4 and 5 immediately and quite legally.
Unfortunately, there is no provider who has both seasons in their subscription offer at this time – instead there is one season each on two different streaming services. “The Good DoctorYou can currently stream Season 4 with a subscription to RTL+:

At Amazon, where the first three seasons – like Netflix – are also available as part of the Prime subscription, seasons 4 and 5 have so far only been available for streaming for a fee.

There is also the fourth season ofThe Good Doctor’ in Germany too on DVD to purchase (we expect the release of the fifth season in October next year). Quite striking: As a DVD box set, the fourth season is currently eight euros cheaper (!) than the VoD version for streaming:

If you don’t want to watch straight away, but want to stay in the Netflix broadcast rhythm, then unfortunately we can’t tell you with certainty when the upcoming episodes will appear on the streaming service. In any case, it currently looks as if VOX and Sky will continue to hold the exclusive rights to new episodes for around two to three years before they can also be included in the Netflix program.
Seasons 1, 2 and 3 were released on Netflix with a significant delay, although they had been running on Sky pay-TV and VOX on free TV long before. If this pattern stays the same, which we are currently assuming, as I said, then it should the 4th season of “The Good Doctor’ will be released on Netflix sometime between May and October 2023 – up to Season 5”The Good DoctorWith Netflix, on the other hand, you would even have to wait until the summer of 2024…
