“If you can’t stay here, I’ll go anywhere you want to go,” says our charming man Jack to the woman of his dreams – Mel. A bitter-sweet relationship driven by passion they always need each other in their lives, no matter the space, distance, and problems in life.

While Virgin River looks like an ordinary show to the ones outside, only the ones who have watched the show know the amount of fandom and aww moments the show boasts of. The show has successfully completed five seasons and the sixth one is going to start filming soon.

But the fifth season’s ending was already sending people down a trip with those holiday blues setting in when new spoilers for the sixth season came in. The fifth season ended with Everett giving some shocking revelations and there are some important conversations to happen in the upcoming season. Everett Reid is Mel’s biological father but there are chances of him being Charmaine’s biological father too along with chances of a genetic condition.

While these things shock everyone, new characters also enter the show, like a Puppy that Mel always wanted and many more. But what does this new season and its spoilers look like? Let us find out.

Mel and Jack Get Married

Mel and Jack are the central characters in this show, and their mature chemistry is a feast to the eyes of viewers. While Jack’s aura allures us, Mel’s beautiful soft curls can never be amiss. The way they are ‘oh so in love’ and practical about important life decisions shows the intensity they share. But life is unfair and after a miscarriage that broke them apart, only a happy moment can make them stronger, and that is when the big question of them getting married comes into play.

Finally, there will be a ring to it and everyone is going ballistic figuring out the perfect location, hairstyle, makeup, and outfit for our dreamy couple to actually have the marriage they always wanted. Alexandra Breckenridge has teased about the logistics being figured out in the show, during her interview with TVLine. Now that Mel’s real father has entered the scene, she has someone to take her down the aisle, but we also have Doc who equally wants to be there next to his girl on her special day, but who takes her to the man she would marry in front of the priest, is the emotional rollercoaster the show would want to figure out

Hope and Doc Finally Find Peace

This couple is old, smart, and just evergreen like the aging hair on their head, but it saddens us to see them always in problems, from the car accident to broken relationships around to the news of the degenerative disorder we only hope that this couple does not see any problems in this season.

Smith tells in an exclusive interview with TVLine, “We will find out early on [in Season 6] that his clinical trial was successful, So we’ll actually have a season where they’re both in good health. It’s finding them with a new lease on life as we’re heading into the new season.” This has brought a wave of relief to the audiences

Mel Finds Out About Her Secret Siblings

Mel’s father confessed about Everett being her biological father and it shocks everyone in a personal manner. This will bring a lot of half-sibling saga and a land of problems about who will adjust with whom and how. But the trouble that would come along, cannot be believed.

 Cameron Makes Up Her Mind About Muriel

Virgin River: Season 4 | Official Trailer | Netflix

Muriel is beautiful and appealing but Cameron is someone the audiences do not like much. While we see Cameron as a minor character we also see that he keeps our Muriel happy. When we see him through her eyes, he looks adorable. Things shattered when Cameron’s ex-wife returns at the end of season 5 but we want things to work out between the couple in this season.

In an interview, Patrick Sean says, “But I think the challenge is that, from the beginning, the way Cameron characterised his coming to Virgin River was that he wanted to find love and romance. He wanted to start a family. That’s a pretty big obstacle for a couple to work through.”

Preacher Gets Away From His Problems

Preacher would surely be one of the most troubled characters who has his own struggles and who we wish finds a purpose of his own very soon. While his job and love life are going downhill, we all see that he is settling into a good relationship with Kaia. He keeps landing himself in trouble for others, and gets betrayed towards the end, but would it happen in this relationship too? We hope for the toxicities to end and many loopholes by Christopher to be clarified not just for Preacher but all of us.

Lizzie Welcomes a Baby Girl

Virgin River: Season 3 | Official Trailer | Netflix

The show’s focus on their sidekicks and minor characters is so beautiful that one can at times fall more in love with these characters than Jack and Mel themselves. While we see many things and romances unfolding, a baby’s cry will help everyone feel the bliss of happiness, so we all are expecting Lizzie and Denny to welcome their baby girl very soon. As the belly starts showing, people feel happier. At the end of season five part 1, she declares that she is pregnant which comes as a shocker to most of us.

Brie and Brady Get Back

Virgin River Season 5 Mel and Jack Heartbreaking Twist Explained

The fifth season saw a series of changes in the dynamics of Brie and Brady, where Brady gets into a relationship with single mom Lark and Brie gets along with the handsome and breathtaking Mike. But things change and old couples and their bonding die hard, so we see hopes of Brie and Brady getting back after realizing their love for each other. While we see the exes landing up around each other most of the time, and landing up in an almost kiss situation, we also see Brady’s new girlfriend reveal that she is a spy for someone else on the inside. But would the exes get back again?

At the end of season five, Everett Reid confesses after being mistaken for someone else that he is Mel’s biological father and his backstory comes up.

Can Cameron finally have a more crucial role in Virgin River Season 6?

Played by Mark Ghanime, this 45-year-old doctor is a friend of Doc and is also known as Dr. Cameron Hayek. His friendship and blossoming romance with a 60-year-old Muriel. In reality, he was just out of an engagement and had also tried to convince Mel to break up with Jack. Strangely, his gray zone character is questionable but we hope to see him more as a partner in season 6.

Why is it important for Brie and Brady to get back?

Brie and Brady are the next big thing! If after Jack and Mel, a couple is loved and adored with no bars, it is them, and who would not enjoy an ex-lovers getting back together trope amidst other serious business taking place at Virgin River? The audience believes that this couple is endgame and should be back in season 6.

Who can be Mel’s new siblings?

While Everett hints at Charmaine being Mel’s sister, only Doc and the biological father can bring more truths out and tell everyone who is whose half-sibling and where it all began.

Who should walk Mel down the aisle so she can marry Jack?

While Everett is her biological father, as per a recent revelation, Doc has always taken care of her, guided her, and loved her more than a father would. He is a man who even became a mentor and got her out of the mess most of the time. But both these men are crucial to Mel, who would be Jack’s bride and so both these men together should walk their daughter down the aisle, but only season 6 can give us all the answers.

Is Virgin River a real place?

While there is a river by the same name, the city is imaginary with 600 residents in the show and it is so ideal, messy, and beautiful at the same time that even the makers want to visit such a space someday.

Where did the show actually film?

Due to high budget constraints, the show actually filmed in Vancouver, Canada, and not Los Angeles. While the setup shows North California, it is all a set which makes it more interesting to watch.
