It’s been three months since Virgin River dropped season three (we can't believe it either). And now that we’ve binged the third installment twice, there’s only one question on our mind: Will the popular Netflix series return for season four? We know, we know—we are barely past season three. But if there’s anything we learned from the cliffhanger in the finale, it’s best to be one step ahead.

Here’s everything we know about Virgin River season four.

1. Is 'Virgin River' season four happening?

That’s the plan. Virgin River recently announced that it had been picked up for a fourth and fifth season by Netflix. Since production reportedly began in July, we expect the new episodes (which we recently learned there will be 12 instead of 10) to drop around this time next year. Unfortunately, few other details are available at this time.

2. What is 'Virgin River' about?

Based on the books by Robyn Carr, the series follows Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge), a nurse practitioner who moves to the small town of Virgin River for a fresh start. While there, she meets a handsome bar owner named Jack (Martin Henderson), who shows her the true meaning of second chances. Season three of Virgin River further explores Mel’s interest in starting a family, so the next installment will likely follow suit.

Virgin River is a fictional town, so most of the show is filmed in Vancouver, Canada. The cast sometimes travels to other B.C. locations, like Squamish, Snug Cove, New Westminster, Squamish, Agassiz and Port Coquitlam.

3. Who's in the cast?

Series regulars include Breckenridge (Melinda, or “Mel”), Henderson (Jack Sheridan), Daniel Gillies (Mark Monroe), Colin Lawrence (John “Preacher” Middleton), Annette O’Toole (Hope McCrea) and Tim Matheson (Vernon “Doc” Mullins).

Along the way, the cast has welcomed several new faces, like Ben Hollingsworth (Dan Brady), Melinda Dahl (Stacie), Zibby Allen (Brie Sheridan), Stacey Farber (Tara Anderson) and Sarah Dugdale (Lizzie).
