The call for the fourth season of Virgin River is strong. After all, the third season of the romantic drama series left us with a lot of questions and it is clear that fans would like to get started with new episodes of the series. In this article, you will find everything we already know about Virgin River season 4. For example, a fourth season would be worked on behind the scenes. Filming is reportedly already planned.
Will there be Virgin River Season 4?
Even before the third season of Virgin River was added to Netflix’s offerings, rumors were already swirling that the series had been renewed for a fourth season. Production Weekly – which has also been right in recent seasons – even knows when filming will start. Filming would be scheduled from the end of July to the end of November 2021. Filming will take place again in Vancouver, Canada.
Plot of Virgin River
Caution: This article contains spoilers if you haven’t seen Virgin River season 3 yet
Mel and Jack
The third season of Virgin River left us with a giant cliffhanger again. During the season we saw that jack and mel were not doing well. When she talks about children, Jack decides to end the relationship with Mel so that she can make her dream come true with someone else. Mel’s leaving for her sister’s for a few days. Presenting her problems with Jack, her sister Mel recalls that she has two more embryos from her ex-wife Mark.
During that same stay in Los Angeles, Mel leaves for the clinic. At the end of the season, Jack wants to propose to Mel. Then she tells me she’s pregnant. The moment Jack tries to respond enthusiastically, Mel claps out of school and announces that she’s not sure if the baby is his. His reaction to that is unknown. In the Virgin River Season 4, it will undoubtedly become clear how jack and mel are doing now.
Doc and Hope
The third season has been a tough season for Doc and Hope. While Doc’s health is deteriorating now that it appears he may be going blind, he also had to do it without his wife Hope. In the series, her absence was written off due to a hurricane and a major car accident, but in fact, COVID-19 prevented Hope from attending season 3 filming. For Virgin River Season 4, the question will be how Doc’s health will develop. Hope’s health situation is also interesting after her serious car accident.
In addition, in season 4 we will learn more about the grandson of Doc who suddenly entered the Virgin River. Showrunner Sue Tenney said: “In previous seasons we’ve learned a lot about Doc and Hope’s past and relationship, their struggles and things like that. For us, it felt like it was good to go back a little bit more. This opens a whole new chapter for Doc in season 4.”
Christopher and Preacher
The concerns for Preacher and Christopher are now also high. In the final episode of Season 3, we see Vince sitting on the couch with Connie and Christopher. Moments earlier, Preacher had gone out with Sally, a friend of Paige’s. As she was about to take him to Paige, she put something in his drink that knocked him unconscious. Tenney says we haven’t seen the end of the situation surrounding Christopher and Paige. “That story will come to a big explosion at the end of Season 4.”
Also, we still haven’t figured out who Jack’s shooter is. In the tenth episode of Virgin River Season 3, brady is arrested for shooting Jack. Throughout the season, however, he has denied the shooting several times, and we also wonder if Brady is. Tenney said: “There’s a reason Brady gets arrested at the end of Season 3. At the end of Season 4, it’s going to be an accumulation and you know who shot Jack. It will involve a huge amount of characters and some will be quite surprising. The end of Season 4 will also open up a brand new mystery. We’re going to close one door, but then open another.”
Cast of Virgin River Season 4
We will have to wait and see in the coming months whether new cast members will be added to the series. For now, at least, a large proportion of main characters seem to be returning. That means at least we’ll see Mel, Jack, and Doc again. Hope is scheduled to be back in the game for the Virgin River Season 4 now that she’s vaccinated. The return of other cast members is still unclear. For example, it is unknown whether Ricky will choose the Navy and it remains to be seen whether we will see Preacher again.
Virgin River Season 4 Release Date
When will Virgin River season 4 come out? Should the filming of Virgin River season 4 actually be scheduled between the end of July and the end of November 2021, we may not even have to wait very long for the fourth season of the series. For now, we estimate that Virgin River will be added to Netflix’s offerings in mid-2022. However, it could also be done even earlier. Season 4 may be released on Netflix as early as March or April 2022. It remains to be seen whether Netflix (The Witcher Season 2, Fargo Season 5) will make any official statements about that.
