‘The Good Doctor’ Will Undergo Some Cast Changes for Season 2
On the heels of the season 1 finale of ABC’s most-watched new series in 13 years, The Good Doctor has revealed that some cast changes will take place for its upcoming sophomore season.
According to Deadline, actor Chuku Modu, who played surgical resident Dr. Jared Kalu on the hit medical drama, will not be returning next season. The departure likely won’t come as a major shock to fans, given the shaky grounds Dr. Kalu had been on after his mid-season firing from San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital. At the end of season 1, he revealed that he had been offered a surgeon gig in Colorado.
The cast is set to get some new full-time faces too, however, including Paige Spara — AKA Lea, Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore)’s neighbor and love interest — who will be upgraded to a series regular.
Joining Spara as new series regulars are Hawaii Five-0 alum Will Yun Lee (Dr. Alex Park), Fiona Gubelmann (Dr. Morgan Reznick), and Christina Chang (Dr. Audrey Lim), who also made lasting impressions in their freshman year on the show.
ABC had a huge hit on its hands with The Good Doctor, so it came as no surprise that the medical drama got an early renewal for a second season last month. Highmore, who portrays a young surgical resident with autism, was nominated for Best Actor at the 2018 Golden Globes for his resonant role. More season 2 details are likely to emerge as the fall TV season approaches.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
