Season 4 of Virgin River will be released on Netflix in July 2022, specifically on July 20th, 2022. Season 5 is also in the works, with production set to begin this summer. Here’s everything we know about Virgin River season 4 so far, including plot, production updates, cast, and more!
Before we get into the series’ future, let’s recap. Virgin River is a drama series based on the novels of Robyn Carr. Mel, a young midwife and nurse practitioner, relocates from the big city to a small rustic town in Northern California.
Mel has been introduced to a variety of different people throughout the town as she establishes her roots over the course of the show’s three seasons. Of course, not everything has gone smoothly, with plenty of drama along the way.
Season 1 of Virgin River was released on Netflix in December 2019, with subsequent releases in November 2020 and the most recent release in July 2021. The show will now return in July, with a July 20th, 2022 release date.
How did Season 3 of Virgin River fare on Netflix?
A quick renewal should come as no surprise to fans of the show. Seasons 2 and 3 were previously renewed ahead of their Netflix premieres. This was especially true for season 3, which was shot concurrently with the release of season 2. We can now see why Netflix ordered two seasons of the show thanks to new top ten figures.
According to newly released viewing hour figures, the show received over a quarter-billion hours of viewing on the platform between July 4th, 2021 and August 15th. It was watched 255,120,000 hours on Netflix during the time period mentioned above.
The show has spent 75 days in the top ten in the United States. For season 3, the show was number one in the United States for just over two weeks before dropping out of the top ten a month later.
The series was also the most watched series between July 12th and July 18th, with 2,109 million minutes watched, beating out Manifest (on Netflix) and Loki (on Disney+).
Season 4 of Virgin River has a new cast
Dr. Cameron Hayek will be played by Mark Ghanimé, best known for his role on Helix. “Armed with eye-catching good looks, a razor-sharp intellect, and a smile that could light up the world, Cameron makes an immediate splash in town – especially with the ladies of Virgin River,” he says.
Kai Bradbury will also appear in the film as Denny Cutler, Doc’s long-lost grandson. Denny arrives with a secret, despite his best efforts to rekindle his relationship with his grandfather.
