Virgin River is only one season old show and its already adored worldwide. One of the main reasons for its widespread fanbase is it is the adaptation of the immensely loved novel series of the same name by Robyn Carr.
Not very alien to the reception of various book adaptations, Netflix’s Virgin River had a polarizing opinion on its authenticity. Thus, all the eyes are on how Season 2 plays out.
Virgin River Season 2 release date – Filming already done?
Virgin River Season 1 aired on December 6, 2019, and became an instant hit. Though the second season was renewed in just a few days of the premiere of the first season, and as many thought the success made Netflix desperate.
However, Netflix was confident enough of the Virgin River prior to its release. Thus, it had the filming of Season 2 done before the renewal announcement and the release of the first season.
The filming for Season 2 of Virgin River began from September 9, 2019, and concluded on December 17, 2019. Exactly 3 days after which, on 20th December, Netflix confirmed the renewal of Season 2.
With the filming already done well in advance, and over 8 months to the renewal announcement, we can expect the Season 2 release to be around the corner.
Season 2 to release in December 2020? – Or it’s delayed?
Considering the desperation Netflix showed in renewing the Season 2 of Virgin River and filming it, it was speculated that the Network wants an early release.
Season 2 was expected to come within one year, because the filming was completed by December 2019. As per several reports, Netflix was looking for a December 2020 release for the show.
However, we are only a couple of months from December, and no updates regarding post-production or release have been shared by Netflix. With an absence of a release date, it doesn’t seem Netflix is looking for a 2020 release. With no doubt, we can blame the Pandemic situation for the delay of the series.
However, considering the inevitable delays, it seems like Virgin River Season 2 will now see a mid-2021 release or late-2021 release.
Expected plot and conflicts in Season 2.
Season 1 of Virgin River was mostly about Melinda (Alexandra Breckenridge) running from her past, trying to forget it, and struggling to settle in the Virgin River.
Season 2 of the Virgin River is expected to explore further dynamics of her complicated relationship with Jack (Martin Henderson), and her life of struggles in the town. The town is not going to be easier for Mel, not at least already in the Second season.
