There might be good news in store for the American romance drama, Virgin River fans
With just two weeks in since its release, Netflix renewed the series for a second season. That’s when we know that this show is one to look out for. Ever since we’ve kept a tab on the show and its development. Here’s all you need to know about the upcoming season:
Virgin River finished filming in December, last year. However, despite wrapping up the filming even before the COVID-19 lockdown, there has been no official announcement about its premiere.
But fans don’t have to worry just yet. Word on the street is that the upcoming season could see a premiere date sometime by the end of this year just like the first season! *Fingers crossed*
Based on the novels of the same name by Robyn Carr, the romance drama will feature 10 episodes as seen in its first counterpart. To add to the good news, reportedly a Season 3 is already in development! If that will not cheer you up, we don’t know what will.
Reprising her role as a nurse and midwife from LA, Melinda ‘Mel’ Monroe will be Alexandra Breckenridge. Playing her love interest as former U.S. Marine and now local restaurant bar owner suffering from PTSD, Jack Sheridan will be Martin Henderson.
Colin Lawrence and Lauren Hammersley will return as John ‘Preacher’ Middleton, Jack’s friend and chef at the bar; and Charmaine Roberts, respectively. Jenny Cooper will continue to star as Joey Barnes, Melinda’s older sister.
Also returning will be Annette O’Toole as the mayor of Virgin River, Hope McCrea and Tim Matheson as Vernon ‘Doc’ Mullins, the local physician. Grayson Gurnsey and Benjamin Hollingsworth from their roles as recurring cast members become the main cast members in Season two.
Season two will also see new cast members, such as Sarah Dugdale as Lizzie.
Additionally joining the lot would be Daniel Gillies, David Cubitt, Lexa Doig, Ian Tracey and Lynda Boyd.
The show revolves around Melinda Monroe who struggles to begin a new chapter of her life in Virgin River, California after leaving behind a difficult past in LA. However, the town isn’t what it appears to be and the past she tries so hard to bury only keeps coming back to haunt her.
Season two will begin where it last left with Mel packing her bags and leaving the town for good as she finds out that Jack and Charmaine were expecting a child.
