'The Good Doctor' Season 2: Lisa Edelstein Joins the Cast in a 'House' Reunion
Lisa Edelstein is donning a white lab coat once more!
She's reportedly set to star in several episodes as Dr. Blaize, an "expert oncologist who has returned to the hospital after a brief suspension, at the request of Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff), to help treat his cancer."
Four characters are becoming series regulars, and one is leaving.
"Dr. Blaize is quite comfortable going toe to toe with Glassman and isn’t afraid to have a little fun while letting him know she calls the shots," the report continues.
This marks a reunion for Edelstein and David Shore, the creator and executive producer of both The Good Doctor and Fox's former hit medical drama, House. Throughout House's seven seasons, Edelstein played Dr. Cuddy, the Dean of Medicine at a fictional New Jersey teaching hospital and the love interest of the titular Dr. House (Hugh Laurie). Her character only quit her job in the series finale.
This should ease now that Girlfriends' Guide is coming to an end, right?
