The release date for ‘Virgin River’ Season 2, which was scheduled for September 2020, has now been moved to an unknown date. And fans of Netflix’s romantic-series are now worried. Will Mel and Jack be back in 2020, or not?
In a mess of content getting darker by the day, the success of Netflix’s ‘Virgin River’ was paramount to what the show stood for. A romantic-drama set in a small, quaint town surrounded by mountains, it was the perfect answer for a relaxing day. After the monumental success of its first season, and garnering a loyal fan base, the show is coming back for a second season. But details about the show may as well be under wrap because we are still clueless about its release date. Or are we? Let’s decode everything there is to know about ‘Virgin River’ Season 2.
- When is the release of ‘Virgin River’ Season 2 expected?
- Meg: To be or not to be?
- Who will return in the second season?
When is the release of ‘Virgin River’ Season 2 expected?
You can’t end the show with a raging cliff-hanger and not inform fans about the release date for the followup season. The first season of Virgin River released on December 6, 2019, and the ideal situation would allow us to watch the second season in December 2020.
Netflix had earlier included the show in its fall release list but according to the recent schedule, ‘Virgin River’ is not a part of the shows releasing in fall. And Netflix is acting rather coy about the details regarding the upcoming instalment. It is highly likely that Netflix will choose to premiere the show in December like it did last year. At least, one can hope so. So, what is the next season going to be about?
Meg: To be or not to be?
‘Virgin River’ is scheduled to have ten episodes in its second season. We can hope that the intense, heartbreaking cliffhanger will be resolved in these 10 episodes. Mel and Jack, who become inseparable by the end of the season, face trouble when Jack’s ex Charmaine announces that she is pregnant with his baby.
The announcement results in Mel’s insecurities about the resurfacing of her infertility issues and results in the abrupt ending of their relationship. Mel decides to pack her bags and leave the small town forever. Things with Paige aren’t looking good either. Her ex-husband shows up in town and Paige goes missing in the final episode.
So, with Paige in trouble and the lead star of the show missing in action, the next season of the show is undoubtedly going to be something worth waiting for. But who else is returning?
Who will return in the second season?
The dramatic ending of the first season saw female lead Melinda Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge) leaving the town of Virgin River for, what she said was, “forever”. But the show can’t go on without its lead, can it? Jack Sheridan (Martin Henderson) will also be reprising his role as the local restaurant-owner and ex-US Marine.
Along with the lead stars, season 2 will also see the return of other central characters played by Jenny Cooper, Colin Lawrence, Lauren Hammersley, Tim Matheson, and Anette O’Toole.
But that is not all. The new season will also bring a lot of new faces to the show. Joining the cast will be Carmel Amit, Steve Bacic, Lane Edwards, Keith MacKechnie, and Thomas Nicholson.
We can officially add another reason to the list of reasons for wanting this year to end.
