Welcome back, Virgin River fans!
If you're here, it's probably because you've already watched (read: cried through) every episode of the Netflix series and you're hoping there's more on the picture-perfect Northern California horizon. Honestly, we don't blame you. Jack (Martin Henderson), Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge), and the rest of the Virgin River cast are more than just characters at this point—they're like friends. It's normal to want to keep up with your friends, right?! (Just nod your head and agree. 😊) And after that cliffhanger season 3 finale, everyone is wondering what's next for the residents of their favorite fictional small town.
Well, you're in luck—because Virgin River season 4 is officially happening. Read on for everything we know so far!
When will "Virgin River" season 4 come out?
Netflix finally confirmed that Virgin River has been renewed for season 4 and 5. According to What's on Netflix, season 4 probably already began filming in late July 2021, and plans to finish by the end of November 2021. Based on the timing of previous seasons, it's likely that the upcoming episodes will be released the following year, around July 2022—we hope.
Martin Henderson confirmed on Instagram that the cast is about halfway done filming season 4, but he gave a bit of a cryptic update on when it will be released.
"Season 4 and season 5! Coming out...sometime," he said in recent post. "Maybe not that soon."
Whatever that means!
Who will be in the cast?
Virgin River is known for its tear-jerking plot twists and heart-stopping cliffhangers—but in the end, our favorite characters usually end up okay. (Knock. On. Wood.) With that in mind, we expect most of the original Virgin River cast to return for season 4.
But this is Virgin River, after all—so a few new faces will be arriving in town to shake things up. According to Deadline, actors Mark Ghanimé and Kai Bradbury have joined the show as series regulars. Fans have actually already met Kai's character, Denny Cutler, who showed up at the end of season 3 claiming to be Doc's long-lost grandson.
Speaking of Doc—remember how he was looking for a replacement doctor? Well, that's going to be Mark. He will star as Dr. Cameron Hayek, the clinic’s charming new physician who's smart, friendly, and extremely handsome.
We're sure Jack won't be jealous at all! 😂
Are there any "Virgin River" season 4 spoilers?
The season 3 finale left fans with a lot of burning questions, so we can assume they'll all be addressed in season 4. (Then again, we still don't know who shot Jack!) As always, the best place to find out what's going to happen on Virgin River is by reading the original book series by Robyn Carr. There are 25 of them, which should be enough to keep you busy until season 4 comes out!
