‘Virgin River’ is, at its very core, a drama series by Netflix that reminds us of a Hallmark production. But that’s not a bad thing; in fact, this approach really makes the show stand out in an oversaturated genre. The story follows a nurse practitioner, Mel, as she relocates to the titular small town from LA to start afresh after her husband’s death. Season 2 has done a great job of keeping us on our toes while also giving us some feel-good content. So, is there a season 3 in the future of the show? Here’s what we know.
Virgin River Season 3 Release Date
‘Virgin River’ season 2 released in its entirety on November 27, 2020, on Netflix. It consists of ten episodes with a runtime of 41–48 minutes each. It takes a closer look at the relationship between the characters and balances drama, comedy, and romance very well. Naturally, the show has amassed quite the fan following in recent times.
Although Netflix has remained tight-lipped about the possibility of a third season, several reports suggest that season 3 has already been commissioned. The previous seasons have dropped on Netflix at the end of the year. If everything works out accordingly without the production being heavily affected by the pandemic, we can expect ‘Virgin River’ season 3 to release sometime in 2021 or later.
Virgin River Season 3 Cast: Who can be in it?
Alexandra Breckenridge plays Melinda “Mel” Monroe, the nurse who moves to Virgin River to cope with the death of her husband. Martin Henderson is her friend, Jack, who also becomes her subsequent love interest. He is a vet and owns a bar in town. Colin Lawrence is Preacher, Jack’s friend who works as the chef at the bar. He, too, is a vet. Lauren Hammersley plays Charmaine, Jack’s friend with benefits who ends up carrying his twins.
Annette O’Toole is seen as the mayor, Hope McCrea, whereas Tim Matheson appears as Hope’s husband and also Mel’s employer, Vernon “Doc” Mullins. Benjamin Hollingsworth brings to life Dan Brady, a veteran who is having a hard time settling down as a civilian. Lexa Doig plays Paige, the owner of a bakery truck. If the show is renewed for a season 3, we can expect these actors to reprise their roles.
Virgin River Season 3 Plot: What can it be About?
In season 2, Mel comes back to Virgin River to complete the remainder of her contract with Doc. Due to her medical expertise, she accepts Charmaine as a patient since the hairdresser is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum (HG), which complicates her pregnancy. Throughout the series, there is tension between Jack, Mel, and Charmaine, making up a significant portion of the storyline.
Apart from this, a horrible person from Paige’s past comes to Virgin River, threatening the safety of Paige and her son. Jamie offers Preacher the opportunity to work at a fancier dining establishment in San Francisco. Brady goes to the dark side and teams up with Calvin, the local drug lord, to earn more money. The romantic tensions between Hope and Doc are also discussed.
We think that season 3 will focus more on Jack and Mel, especially in the wake of the finale. However, it does seem as though tragedy will befall Doc, who mentions that he had visited a doctor before being cut off by a surprise party. In either case, the plot will most likely continue to look at the interpersonal relationships between all characters and paint a beautiful story.
