The countdown is on, and the riveting journey of the Virgin River will continue for another chapter! Here is everything we know so far about Virgin River Season 5.
Prepare to be captivated once again as the picturesque town of Virgin River welcomes you back for an exhilarating fifth season that has already become a sensation among the fandom with the release of the new trailer, which delves deeper into the lives of our favorite residents as they navigate through a myriad of challenges and triumphs with its captivating storyline, endearing characters, and breathtaking scenery. The new trailer lasts up to 1:20 minutes, and it begins by showcasing the one and only Mel! As she tries to adjust to a different pace of life with Jack, who works to grow his business, the town faces new threats as secrets begin to surface in Virgin River!
The trailer proves that the beloved Netflix series will once again rule at the top of the charts on Netflix and take the world by storm once it’s released worldwide. As the official trailer stresses that in the new season, we’ll see surprising new relationships, a shocking break-up, a difficult court trial, a heartbreaking goodbye, and a wildfire that threatens the town, bringing some residents of Virgin River together while tearing others apart. Issues of motherhood push Mel to make a big decision about her future at the clinic while her pregnancy unexpectedly sparks an emotional connection to her past.
To further prove himself to Mel, Jack squares off with some long-overdue confrontations — with his own demons, and of course, with Charmaine. And as Doc and Hope’s respective impairments throw their identities into question, the doctor and the mayor must find solace in their community, in their young new family, and in each other. On the other hand, new showrunner Patrick Sean Smith told Tudum when Season 5 began filming that he “couldn’t be prouder to join the Virgin River family. Together with its stellar cast and amazing crew, we’ve got great things in store for our fans worldwide.”
The plot lines from Season 4 will also be addressed in the new season, which are hinted at in that trailer like: What’s going to happen with Vince, Paige, Christopher, and Preacher? What’s Denny’s prognosis? What kind of trouble has Brady gotten himself into this time? And who, exactly, is the father of Charmaine’s babies? In addition to this, Mel is prioritizing her high-risk pregnancy over her job, Preacher is getting a new love, and there’s some actual, literal mudslinging. But, as Hope tells her friends in the trailer, “We will rise from the ashes. That’s the power of the Virgin River.”
“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. Plus, executive producer and writer Richard Keith promised Tudum on the same set visit, “There are some new characters coming to Virgin River this season that will mix things up a bit.” One of those characters is played by Battlestar Galactica’s Kandyse McClure.
The trailer also confirms that Virgin River will return for Season 5 Part 1 on Thursday, September 7, 2023, at 12:00 a.m. (PT) or 3:00 a.m. (ET) on Netflix, and Part 2, which will include two very special holiday episodes that will debut later on Thursday, November 30, 2023, expanding on the romance, paternity drama, rural drug lords, and normal small-town dramas, a sizable wildfire poses a threat to the location that Virgin River’s residents love most in the entire world. Mayor Hope, the local doctor Doc, bar owner Jack, nurse practitioner Mel, and Chef Preacher are all characters in the show.
