In addition to that, we have a new showrunner (Patrick Sean Smith) as well.

Is the Trailer for Virgin River Season 5 Out?

No, the trailer for Virgin River Season 5 is not out yet. However, you can expect it sometime around July 2023, as the premiere of the season is also around that time.

What Can You Expect In The Upcoming Season? (Spoilers)

Toward the end of Season 4, we see Charmaine in severe pain, plus she is even scared of losing her babies (twins). Because of this, she confesses to Jack and Mel that the twins aren’t really Jack’s children. 

Hence, the early episodes of Season 5 will likely explore the aftermath of the confession. In fact, while talking to Glamour Magazine, Breckenridge and Henderson spilled some beans about the twins’ paternity. 

This clearly implies we will get to see a paternity test, for starters. 

Then you can expect a heck of emotional turmoil! 

Speaking of emotional turmoil, in the season finale, Brie opened up about her sexual assault and how Brady further helped Brie put a case against Don (ex-boyfriend). 

This season will likely focus on the court trials and Brie’s healing. Other than that, Season 5 might also explore Mel and Jack’s relationship (and upcoming baby).

Further, we would like to get an update on the town’s mayor (Hope). We hope to watch her recover and run around fulfilling her mayoral responsibilities.

Another recovery we are hoping for is for Danny to be free from Huntington’s disease. 

However, next would realistically explore Lizzie and Danny’s complicated feelings towards each other through his sickness. Maybe they will come out stronger? Or will she process her unresolved feelings towards Ricky and seek stability there?

Regardless, this season has so many tropes to unpack. Hopefully, it will please the viewers!

Background: Virgin River 

The book series of the same name inspired the American television series Virgin River. 

The show primarily focuses on Mel (Melinda Monroe), who moves to the Virgin River town of Nothern-California from Los Angeles. She had accepted the job profile as a nurse practitioner and midwife, wanting to leave her haunting past behind and start fresh. 

However, she soon realized that small-town life is not as easy to adapt to as she expected! 

The next four seasons explore Mel’s happy and challenging moments through life alongside other characters and their respective journeys. 

  • Genre: Romantic Drama
  • Based on: Robyn Carr’s book series Virgin River
  • Original Network: Netflix
  • Total seasons: Five (for now)
