Netflix Just Renewed ‘Virgin River’ for Season 3—Here’s What We Know
*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Now that we’ve binge-watched the entire second season of Virgin River, are we too eager to wonder if we’ll get more episodes? Well (good news!), Netflix just renewed the popular series for season three after months of speculation.
So, when will it premiere? And will it feature the same cast? Here’s everything we know about Virgin River season three.
1. WHEN DOES 'VIRGIN RIVER’ SEASON 3 PREMIERE?In December 2020, Netflix confirmed that Virgin River will return for season three. Although the streaming service hasn’t announced a premiere date, we expect the new episodes to be released in late 2021. (That is, if the show begins production early next year, as scheduled.)
2. WHAT’S SEASON 3 ABOUT?
With such little info out there about season three, we’d imagine it would start off where the latest season ended: with Mel finding Jack bleeding out on the floor of his bar after being shot. Yikes.
However, if you are looking for more info about where the series could be headed, we recommend reading the books by Robyn Carr (they did inspire the show after all). But be warned that the show tends to deviate from the novels a bit.
3. WHO’S IN IT?
We believe a handful of stars will sign on to reprise their roles, including Alexandra Breckenridge (Melinda), Colin Lawrence (John “Preacher” Middleton), Jenny Cooper (Joey Barnes), Lauren Hammersley (Charmaine Roberts), Annette O’Toole (Hope McCrea) and Tim Matheson (Vernon). And we’re hoping season two newbie, Melinda Dahl, will also continue her time as Mel’s sister-in-law Staci. No word on if there will be any new faces, but we hope.
4. IS THERE A TRAILER?
Not yet. And there probably won’t be for a long time, considering we waited almost 11 months for a sneak peek at season two. But we’ll try to be patient in the meantime.
