Virgin River - Season 3
On September 27, 2018, it was announced that Netflix had given the production a series order for a first season consisting of ten episodes. The series was based on the Virgin River book series by Robyn Carr with executive producers: Sue Tenney, Roma Roth, and Chris Perry. Tenney was also set to serve as the series' showrunner with Reel World Management acting as the Production company involved in the series. On December 20, 2019, Netflix renewed the series for a 10-episode second season. On December 18, 2020, Netflix renewed the series for a 10-episode third season. On September 20, 2021, Netflix renewed the series for a 12-episode fourth and fifth season. On July 26 2022, it was reported that Patrick Sean Smith replaced Sue Tenney as showrunner.
On December 19, 2018, it was reported that Alexandra Breckenridge, Martin Henderson, Tim Matheson, and Annette O'Toole had been cast in series regular roles. Additionally, it was further reported that Jenny Cooper, David Cubitt, Lexa Doig, Daniel Gillies, Lauren Hammersley, Benjamin Hollingsworth, Colin Lawrence, Trevor Lerner, and Ian Tracey had joined the cast in an undisclosed capacity. On May 29, 2020, Sarah Dugdale joined the second season as a series regular while Grayson Gurnsey has been promoted as a series regular for the second season. On June 11, 2020, Benjamin Hollingsworth was promoted to a series regular for the second season. Upon the third season renewal announcement, Zibby Allen was cast a new series regular and Stacey Farber was cast in a recurring role. On October 25, 2021, Mark Ghanimé and Kai Bradbury joined cast as new series regulars for the fourth season.
Principal photography for the series' first season commenced on December 3, 2018, in Vancouver, British Columbia and ended on March 26, 2019. The series was also filmed on location in Snug Cove, New Westminster, Squamish, Agassiz, and Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. Filming for the second season began on September 9, 2019 and ended on December 17, 2019. Filming for the fourth season ended on December 7, 2021. Filming for the fifth season began on July 18 and concluded on November 21, 2022.
Against all odds, the second season somehow outdid the first in terms of breakups, makeups, and unbelievable reveals, ultimately ending in a cliffhanger so shocking that it should be a federal crime to end a season that way. Obviously, a third season is crucial. Here's everything we know about the next installment of Virgin River, which finished filming in early 2021 and was released July 9, 2021.
Season three had its work cut out for it, since season two ended with at least one cliffhanger for almost every character. The next batch of episodes will need to address whether Mel and Jack are back together for good, the medical news Doc Mullins was about to share with Hope before they were interrupted by a surprise re-engagement party, how Preacher decides between staying in Virgin River or taking that new chef job in San Francisco, and, most urgently, who shot Jack (opens in new tab) (and, of course, if he even survives).
If this seems like a tall order, fear not: Tenney, the showrunner, has all but guaranteed that every unanswered question will be addressed in a third season that will also, in true rom-dram fashion, open up many new cans of worms for the residents of Virgin River. In an interview (opens in new tab) with TVLine, she noted that the question of who shot Jack will be explored throughout season three, with the mystery potentially continuing into future seasons. Tenney also hinted that the next season won't pick up right where season two left off, immediately after Mel discovered Jack bleeding from a gunshot on the floor of the bar, and she warned viewers to expect "a larger time jump than we had between seasons one and two."
Preacher, meanwhile, will have to make a decision between accepting a new opportunity outside of his small town or accepting Paige-slash-Michelle's son Christopher's plea for help, all while dealing with the ominous message of revenge he received from Wes' twin brother (surprise!). In the season three trailer, we see him doubt his caretaking abilities, saying, "Maybe [Christopher] should be with someone else" during a scary situation in which Christopher appears to be receiving medical care.
If you thought Virgin River already had enough on its plate with the individual storylines of its many existing characters, you might want to buckle up. When Netflix announced the series' official season three renewal, the streaming service also confirmed that Zibby Allen and Stacey Farber would be joining the cast. Allen, who's appeared on The Flash and Grey's Anatomy, will have a main role as Jack's lawyer sister Brie, while Saving Hope alum Farber will have a recurring role as Lilly's daughter Tara.
Esme Mazzeo writes (opens in new tab) for Tell Tale TV: "Virgin River is still a beautiful place to behold, but we barely have time to take a breath and enjoy the simpler moments of the season before the next person experiences trauma. "
Meanwhile, there are some new additions to the Virgin River cast in the new season, with Mark Ghanimé playing new doctor in town Dr Cameron Hayek, while Jack gets a surprise visit from his dad Nick (Keith MacKechnie) as he's coming to terms with becoming a father himself.
The first season was released in 2019, the second in 2020 and the third in 2021. Additionally, there are currently a total of 30 episodes, with each season having ten each. A fourth season has been filmed and it is set to air on July 22 2022 (mark your calendars!) A further fifth season has also been confirmed but there are no further details available as yet. Watch this spot though, we will keep you updated on any developments!
Much of the season 1 and 2 cast returned for season 3. Martin Henderson and Alexandra Breckenridge reprise their roles as the main protagonists Jack and Mel with many familiar faces also returning. Check out the full cast list below!
Virgin River Season 2 ended on a major cliffhanger after we saw Jack getting shot and we were left wondering if he would survive. And with some major questions, like who actually shot him? And it happened just after Mel and Jack seemed to find some stability in their relationship, so how much would this terrible event shake things up again? All this left us waiting impatiently for season 3 to drop!
Filming and production for Virgin River Season 4 has wrapped up and it is set to arrive on Netflix on July 20 2022. With so many threads left dangling at the end of season 3 we are in anticipation with so many unanswered questions.
No, Virgin River is not getting cancelled. Season 4 will be released on July 20 2022 and a fifth season has also been confirmed. And as there are 22 books in the Virgin River book series from Robyn Carr then there is plenty of source material for more episodes.
Fans have been waiting for Virgin River season 3 since season 2 dropped back in late November 2020. Although we did originally expect the new season towards the tail-end of 2021, it may be coming to Netflix as soon as July 2021.
Both seasons 1 and 2 of Virgin River have released towards the end of the year with season 1 dropping in December 2019 and season 2 in November 2020 but it sounds like season 3 could be just around the corner.
Sometimes it feels like Mel and Jack can't catch a break, and their latest obstacle is a heavy one. Prior to Season 1, Mel lost both her husband (Daniel Gillies) and a child. The couple had struggled with infertility after their baby was stillborn, going through multiple rounds of in vitro fertilization to no avail. Early in Season 3, having processed her grief and in a good place with Jack, Mel tells him she wants to have a baby. However, Jack is hesitant, and it's easy to see why: He already has twins on the way with his ex-girlfriend (Lauren Hammersley) and feels unprepared, especially after his house burns down in the season premiere.
There is plenty of drama that plays out on-screen in Season 3, but there was drama off-screen as well, due to COVID-19. While much of the show's cast was able to return, Annette O'Toole, who plays Hope McCrea, the town mayor and wife of Doc Mullins, was unable to be in Vancouver, British Columbia, for filming. The result is that Hope is said to be visiting an elderly aunt in South Carolina when a hurricane knocks out power and strands her there. The character appears a few times via FaceTime, but when Hope's best friend, Lilly (Lynda Boyd), dies from pancreatic cancer in the second half of the season, she books the first flight home.
Virgin River, which was renewed for a third season in December, follows nurse practitioner Melinda 'Mel' Monroe (Breckenridge) as she moves from Los Angeles to the small town of Virgin River. There she meets local bar owner and former U.S. Marine Jack Sheridan (Henderson).
Virgin River Season 3 has not been confirmed by Netflix, but there are some signs that filming has already begun on the new series as the current run of episodes sit at the top of the Netflix top 10 series chart. Production Weekly wrote that shooting began on the third season way back in July, and locals in Vancouver have been spotting the stars on set.
Another hint that Virgin River Season 3 is well underway is the way that showrunner Sue Tenney has been talking about it in interviews. While other Netflix show bosses are often circumspect about the future of their shows, Tenney has been giving hints that suggest a third season is already a foregone conclusion. 041b061a72
