‘Virgin River’ is one of Netflix’s most endearing sleeper successes. Netflix has renewed the series for two more seasons after a successful third season. The romantic drama, on the other hand, is branching out into new territory.
‘Virgin River’ on Netflix is a calm, peaceful, and beautiful drama series that stands out among all the heavy political dramas, superhero movies, and series. The series, which is based on a book of the same name, has become extremely popular. While Netflix prefers to keep numbers about the popularity of specific TV shows and movies private, ‘Virgin River’ has a large fan base that speaks volumes about the show’s success.
Netflix has also been impressed by this show; otherwise, why would the streaming giant renew it for a fourth season before the release of the third season in July 2021? It took a few more months for Netflix to announce that the drama would not only return for a fourth season, but also for a fifth.
The series follows Melinda Monroe as she moves to the town of ‘Virgin River’ to heal the wounds of her past. She initially has a good life there. However, as time passes, she realizes that life is not as simple as she once believed.
Apart from Alexandra Breckenridge, who plays the main character, the series also stars Martin Henderson and Colin Lawrence. The gentle romantic drama progresses with bittersweet scenes, with no hurry or pace, and no heavy themes. However, something changed in season 3, which may have an impact on how the story unfolds in the next two seasons.
The series’ third season ended on major cliff hangers. The preacher was poisoned near the end of the season, making his arc crucial at the start of the fourth season. The plot will also revolve around Mel and Jack’s relationship after the latter reveals that she is pregnant.
Lizzy and Todd are also going through a lot of emotional turmoil. It’ll all add up to a compelling fourth season. The series can also stray from its genre as a romantic saga and explore more human emotions, making us care even more about the characters in the coming seasons.
In terms of the series’ distant future, it appears to be sufficiently long. The book series ‘Virgin River,’ on which the series is based, is divided into 25 parts.Robyn Carr, the author, spent a significant portion of her life working on these books. Given the series’ track record of success, we can assume that there will be many more seasons to enjoy.
