Virgin River is undoubtedly the best series for Netflix that consistently generates a significant number of views for the OTT platform. Virgin River, which is quite one of the big hits on Netflix, made its Netflix debut in December 2019. The series’ journey has been very smooth. The romantic drama starring Alexandra Breckenridge, Martin Henderson, Colin Lawrence, and Jenny Cooper is a hit with viewers all over the world.
Release Date of Virgin River Season 5
There will definitely be the fifth season of Virgin River, according to Netflix, but no precise air date has been set yet. However, based on what we currently know, season 5 is anticipated to premiere in the summer of 2023.
Given that seasons 3 and 4 were both released in July of their respective years, it is reasonable to assume that season 5 will also have a July release date set.
Recently, actor Martin Henderson shared on Instagram that the cast and crew were celebrating the end of the episode 50 filming. According to our calculations, they still have four episodes to shoot before season 5 is finished.
Virgin River Season 5 Cast
Season 5 of Virgin River will undoubtedly see Alexandra Breckenridge, who plays Mel Monroe, return. Martin Henderson will return to reprise his role as Jack for season 5 as well, given that their relationship is on track to reach its unavoidable happy conclusion.
We know that the following cast members will also be returning based on a screenshot of the season 5 table read posted on Instagram:
- Mark Ghanimé as Cameron Hayek
- Benjamin Hollingsworth as Brady
- Colin Lawrence as Preacher
- Zibby Allen as Brie
- Marco Grzzini as Mike
- Keith MacKechnie as Nick
- Gwynyth Walsh as Jo Ellen
- Nicola Cavendish as Connie
- Jenny Cooper as Joey
- Kai Bradbury as Denny
- Barbara Pollard as Melissa Montgomery
The Plot of Virgin River Season 5 (Spoiler Alert)
Beginning in October 2022, the official Virgin River Instagram account posted a picture of Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) and Jack (Martin Henderson) looking glam. Mel and Jack are engaged, so hopefully, season five of Virgin River will feature wedding bells.
One significant query we had following season three concerned Mel’s child’s paternity. Fortunately, a test revealed that Jack is the baby’s father, but a significant season 4 cliffhanger saw Charmaine admit that her twins are not actually Jack’s. Without a doubt, Season 5 will see Jack and Mel adjust to this change, which, strangely enough, might be good for their relationship.
In another location, Paige eventually led Christopher and herself to safety with a little assistance from Preacher, who took out Vince before he could kill Paige. However, we still need to determine whether Vince is actually dead or is only temporarily incapacitated. The next season should bring the resolution.
After Melissa Montgomery was introduced in season 4, we may also be able to predict who the next major antagonist of the show will be. Although she hasn’t done anything particularly wrong so far, a secret photographer was undoubtedly interested in her company. This, combined with the fairly ominous music playing when she first arrives, makes us think that this might be a season 5 character to keep an eye on.
According to showrunner Sean Smith in an interview,
“Virgin River season 5 will be new and exciting, but still, very much feel like the same show,”
