'Virgin River' Fans, Get Ready for Answers after That Shocking Season 3 Finale

Virgin River captured the hearts of Netflix viewers when the first season aired in December 2019. Loyal fans have followed the heartfelt story of nurse/midwife Mel Monroe (Alexandra Breckinridge) and Marine/bar owner Jack Sheridan (Martin Henderson) as they fell in love in the picturesque town of Virgin River. The couple faced their fair share of twists and heartaches, and season two left fans grappling with what the future would hold after Jack was shot and left for dead in his bar. Luckily for viewers, any question of Jack's future is resolved in the first few minutes of season three, but so many more questions arise during the dramatic 10 episodes.

Warning: Major season 3 spoilers ahead!

What happened at the end of season 3?

So much. The whole town is coping with Lilly's (played by Lynda Boyd) tragic death. Ricky (Grayson Maxwell Gurnsey) is deciding whether to join the Marines, leaving his relationship with Lizzie (Sarah Dugdale) in question. Hope (Annette O'Toole) is fighting for her life after a car accident. Preacher (Colin Lawrence) is drugged on his way to see Paige (Lexa Doig). Brady (Benjamin Hollingsworth), who has been dating Jack's sister, is arrested for shooting Jack. A teenager shows up in town claiming to be Doc's (played by Tim Matheson) grandson. Jack is grappling with Charmaine's (played by Lauren Hammersley) pregnancy and anticipating a custody battle over their twins. Mel and Jack break up briefly, then she interrupts his marriage proposal to tell him she's pregnant and she's not sure he's the father. Whew!

Will there be a season 4 of Virgin River?

Netflix announced on May 11 that season 4 will be back on July 20. The new season will have 12 episodes.

Will the entire cast return for season 4?

Netflix gave this description for the new season, so we're hopeful our favorite characters will be back! "Despite not knowing whether her baby belongs to her deceased husband, Mark or Jack, Mel begins Season Four with a sense of optimism. For years she yearned to be a mother and her dream is one step closer to reality. While Jack is supportive and excited, the question of paternity continues to gnaw at him. Complicating matters is the arrival of a handsome new doctor, who's in the market to start a family of his own. Hope is still healing from her car accident, and the lingering psychological effects of her brain injury will have profound consequences for both her and Doc. Brie, intent on proving the innocence of the man she loves, unexpectedly finds herself in a closer relationship with Mike and one step closer to Calvin’s violent criminal web. Even as Preacher forges a new romantic connection, he can’t help but hold out hope for being reunited with Christopher and Paige."
