Fans are patiently anxiously waiting for Virgin River season four to premiere on Netflix. In the meantime, Alexandra Breckenridge (Melinda “Mel” Monroe) is sharing details about when the fifth season will begin production, including why she hopes it’s sooner rather than later.
The 39-year-old actress recently hosted an Instagram Live, where she answered burning questions from fans about what’s to come on Virgin River. Breckenridge confirmed that she already wrapped filming on season four, which should premiere later this year. While discussing season five, she admitted that production will likely begin in summer 2022.
“I’m hoping that maybe we’ll start in the summer,” she said, according to Express.
Breckenridge explained that Virgin River is filmed in Vancouver and joked that the weather is much better in Canada during the summer, versus the winter. “It would be nice to film in Vancouver in the summer rather than the winter,” she added. “To be quite frank with you guys, I’m pretty done filming in Vancouver in the winter. Not really interested in doing that ever again actually, it’s really cold.”
