The cast of The Good Doctor Season 7 might look very different in the autumn. Why, you ask? Hill Harper, who plays Dr. Marcus Andrews in The Good Doctor, declared his candidature for the United States Senate on Monday. He is competing for the seat now held by departing Senator Debbie Stabenow in Michigan, where he will face Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin.
A political run will very certainly have an influence on Harper’s future on the Freddie Highmore medical drama, which is now filming in British Columbia, Canada. Season 7 of the show was already renewed by ABC.

However, on Monday, July 10, 2023, Harper declared his candidature for the United States Senate in the state of Michigan. He announced the development on Instagram with a video campaign announcement, including his kid.
“We can all sense it.” “D.C. simply does not get things done for people – because special interests always come first,” he stated in the essay. “As a union organizer, single dad, and business owner, I understand the challenges that Michiganders are facing right now.”
Harper has never run for public office before, although he has strong educational and entrepreneurial experience. He graduated from Brown University with a Bachelor of Arts, Harvard Law School with a J.D., and Harvard Kennedy School with a Master of Public Administration.
