Kayla Cromer (Everything’s Gonna Be Okay) and and Wavyy Jonez (Unsolved) will join ABC’s The Good Doctor in its final season.
Cromer will recur as Charlene ‘Charlie’ Lukaitis, a third-year medical student who’s excited both for this rotation and the chance to work with her hero, Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore). Like Shaun, she has Autism Spectrum Disorder, and she has idolized him since she first saw the viral video of him saving a boy’s life at the San Jose airport. Empowered and energetic, her passion for surgery may only be matched by her love for Taylor Swift.

Jonez will play Dominick ‘Dom’ Hubank, another third-year med student who is hoping this surgical rotation is just a box to check on his way to become the family doctor in his underserved community. But this former football player learns he isn’t as tough as he appears when he faints at the sight of blood. Too big to fail, Dom must overcome his newly discovered hemophobia, and will need his peer and friend Charlie to do so.
The final season of The Good Doctor premieres on February 20. David Shore and Liz Friedman are executive producers and co-showrunners. The series is from Sony Pictures Television and ABC Signature.
Cromer is repped by KMR Talent and Echo Lake Entertainment. Jonez is represented by Entertainment 360 and Gersh.
