Virgin River Season 5: What is the plot?

The next season is sure to take up where Season 4 left off, and the fans will get to know if Jack and Mel will truly go down the aisle after Jack pops the question in the Season 4 finale. Or will they face unforeseen difficulties that put their happily ever after in jeopardy? Charmaine’s pregnancy is developing, but is Jack really the biological father of the twins, as she claims? The burgeoning relationship between Brie and Mike, Muriel’s challenges with aging and health concerns, and whatever is going on between Preacher and Paige are all ongoing stories.

“What you can expect from Season 5 is a lot of answers to the questions you have been waiting for,” executive producer and writer Erin Cardillo told Tudum at a set visit last year. Hope’s recovery, Doc’s diagnosis, the Paige situation, Brie and Brady’s relationship – they’re all going to be addressed. Executive producer and writer Richard Keith also promised Netflix Tudum on the same set visit, quote, “There’s some new characters coming to Virgin River this season that will mix things up a bit.”

“Season 5 is going to continue to stay true to what fans have loved about the show from the beginning; it feels like a community that we all belong to and that we’re all a part of, it’s very comforting, it gives you hope, and I think all of that is stuff that people can’t get enough of these days,” Netflix’s Head Of Drama, Development Jinny Howe told Deadline

“I think what’s going to be interesting is to see this universe continue to grow and expand and to see new characters, other characters return. A lot of that was set up in the Season 4 finale but it’s going to be really exciting to see all of that come to a head in Season 5. And some of the soap that’s going to come out of these new complex tensions and triangles.”
