Well, four months for 12 episodes with around 45-50 minutes. Ya, the reward for our patience is good enough.
Who’s returning in Virgin River Season 5?
While we can expect our old to return in Season 5. There is some new cast member too. That’ll be joining Virgin River soon. There is a total of four new cast members like Kandyse McClure, Susan Hogan, Elise Gatien & Paolo Miaolo. We don’t know the exact character name but believe that some new members might be related to the director’s new desire to spin a little LGBTQ+ storyline. Apart from the new cast, the old ones are showing their golden period will be:
- Alexandra Breckenridge is an American actress famous for her supporting roles in She’s the Man & Big Fat Liar. She’ll be returning in the new season as Mel Monroe.
- Martin Henderson is a New Zealand actor known for his role on Off the Map & Grey’s Anatomy. He’ll return as Jack Sheridan.
- Annette O’Toole is an American actress well known for her role in Nash Bridges and IT movies. She’ll return on the screen as Hope McCrea.
- Tim Matheson is an American actor & director best known for his roles in Jonny Quest and National Lampoons. He’ll play Dr. Vernon Mullins.
- Benjamin Aleen Nicolas Hollingsworth, the Canadian actor known for his role in Code Black. He’ll return as Dan Brady.
Virgin River Season 5 Expected Plot
In the season 4 finale, we saw how frightened Chairmaine was after noticing her twins in severe anguish. It’s expected that this might be the main storyline in Season 5. We’ll witness who is the biological father of the twins since Jack is not the one. We can create numerous storylines, although one thing is sure the Twin’s father is someone from the old cast.
Apart from them, we might witness Hope’s recovery thanks to Lizzie. Fans’ favorite is to watch how boldly Brie stands up to her rapist Don, also her ex-boyfriend. While the Legal trial is on the way of Virgin River diaries, we wait to catch up with Jack and Mel’s newborn daughter.
It’s going to be interesting to witness how parental duties are for Jack and Mel. Lizzie’s crush might not be able to make it back to her as he’s severely ill. Death will be a breaking point for Lizzie as she’s in love with Ricky and Danny.
