The Good Doctor Scoop: Aly and AJ Michalka to Guest Star!

at .

The Good Doctor is bringing real-life sisters into the mix for an upcoming episode.

TV Line reports that the March 7 episode of the ABC medical drama finds the sisters playing a fictitious sister act.

AJ is set to play Nelly, the patient of the week.

Nelly is a high-profile pop star who lost her voice due to injuries sustained in a car accident.

Aly is Lexi, her older sister.

They have a close relationship that is "slightly strained," likely because Lexi has since gone on to make it big in the music industry.

The outlet reports that Andrews takes on the case in an attempt to please Salen, but the surgery is a "high-risk procedure."

It was recently reported that the hit drama would be returning for the back half of The Good Doctor Season 5 on Monday, February 28, at 10/9c.

The decision to bring the show back earlier was made due to the lack of interest in freshman sudser Promised Land, which will unspool the rest of its run on Hulu.

The series is likely toast, but it's possibly a boom on streaming could make the service pick up a streaming-exclusive second season.

“Promised Land is a beautifully executed and tremendously entertaining series of which everyone at our company is extremely proud,” an ABC rep said to TV Line earlier this month.

“We know it has a passionate audience that is very invested in this show, and those viewers will be able to stream all subsequent episodes exclusively on Hulu every Tuesday for the rest of the season.”

If you watch The Good Doctor online, you know there's a lot to unpack when the series returns.

We were left with a string of cliffhangers, which is normally the case with the show.

The Good Doctor Quotes

Claire: You had a pulmonary embolism -- a blood clot in your lung. The medication broke it up.
Michelle: How did that happen?
Melendez: The clot broke off from a larger clot in your leg and travelled up.
Claire: As for why the clot formed in your leg in the first place... I asked you if you were taking birth control pills and you said no. Was that the truth?
Michelle: You asked me in front of Tisha so I said no. I'm doing it with my boyfriend and I don't want babies so I'm taking birth control pills.

As a wise person once said, holding a grudge is a stone in your heart.
