For an entire year, fans of ‘Virgin River’ were waiting for season 2.

While there are many updates and rumours around, let’s look at what is confirmed and what to expect from Netflix.

‘Virgin River’ – Has Netflix confirmed season 3?
Netflix’s ‘Virgin River’ has a strong fan base. The reason for its popularity is that it’s based on an already popular novel series of the same name by Robyn Carr. The story follows Melinda (Alexandra Breckenridge), who, to leave behind her painful past, moves to a remote California town of Virgin River as a midwife and a nurse practitioner. Then, as we saw in season 1, things take a quick, complex turn, landing Mel in further conflicts.
Season 1 of ‘Virgin River’ debuted on Netflix on December 6, 2019. Confident of the show’s success, Netflix quickly revived the show with season 2, which was released on November 27, 2020. Both the seasons of ‘Virgin River’ had 10 episodes each, and season 3 is expected to follow the same pattern.
However, as of now, Netflix hasn’t confirmed anything regarding season 3 of the show. But keeping in mind that season 2 has premiered recently, we must wait till year-end for any official update.
When can we expect season 3 to premier?
Though Netflix hasn’t confirmed the ‘Virgin River’ Season 3 release date yet, we can expect the show to hit the screens by the end of 2021. Because season 1 and season 2 of ‘Virgin River’ also premiered around late November to early December, we can expect the same release period for season 3 as well.
As per a report from “Production Weekly” earlier this year, season 3 of ‘Virgin River’ was expected to begin its production from August 2020. However, there has been no update regarding the same. Also, the pandemic restrictions have left no shows unaffected. Thus, we might see some delay in the release of season 3.
When will ‘Virgin River’ return with a new season – and what will be the plot and story?
What could be the plot of season 3?
If you haven’t already watched season 2 of ‘Virgin River’, you should strictly avoid any spoilers. Thus, while keeping our lips tight, what we can tell you is that in season 2 Mel kept struggling with her time in the town. Her love triangle with Jack (Martin Henderson) faced further complications.
Season 2 of the show ended with not one, but several cliff hangers. We are expecting season 3 of ‘Virgin River’ to open with the answers to those burning questions. What we know is that season 3 will once again see a time jump in the same manner as season 1 and 2. However, showrunner Sue Tenney has revealed to “TV Line” that we can expect “a larger time jump than we had between seasons one and two”.
The key cast of the show, including Alexandra Breckenridge, Martin Henderson, Colin Lawrence, Lauren Hammersley, and others are expected to return. Even without Netflix confirming a season 3 for ‘Virgin River’, we are sure of the show’s return through the hints of the plot revealed by the showrunner.
