Virgin River Season 5: plot, cast, release date and expectations

Virgin River’s fourth season was just recently made available on Netflix, but work on the fifth has already started. Filming, according to 18th July reporters, has begun. Virgin River, a notable Netflix blockbuster, made its debut on the service in December 2019. The trajectory of the series has been quite slick. Fans of the show from all around the world love the romantic drama starring Alexandra Breckenridge, Martin Henderson, Colin Lawrence, and Jenny Cooper.

Virgin River Season 5, Renewal Status

For those who don’t know, Virgin River had a second season ordered following the third. The fourth season had to be canceled before it could be officially announced since we had heard about the show that had started filming.

Filming was also spurred by the series’ audience response. The show does not cover all of the headlines. According to Netflix, the program recently accumulated 333.92 million hours watched globally while it was in the top 10, validating the top 10 hourly ratings. After its debut, the third season dominated the global ratings for six weeks, accumulating 225.12 million hours of viewing between July 4 and August 15, 2021.

The most noteworthy part of the hourly data is that it primarily reflects the qualities of the third season, which will begin in July 2021. Season 4 only has a few more days available on the platform after the first week, allowing for a more aggressive first-week launch.

Virgin River’s fifth-season production

Virgin River season 5 filming, according to earlier sources this year, would start in March 2022. This has been put off till July 2022 a number of times. The series was still experiencing delays until July 2022, despite the fact that those dates had previously undergone and finished the revisions.

Our earlier sources stated that the filming would take place between July 1 and November 30, 2022. The reason for the delay is still unknown. Alexandra Breckenridge is also interested in shooting in the summer because Vancouver isn’t very fascinating in the winter. Additionally, we can reveal that production commenced on July 18, 2022, in Vancouver, British Columbia, and is scheduled to wrap up on November 10, 2022.

The official Virgin River Instagram account shared a Zoom call of a table based on the fifth season to announce the start of production. The most recent sources indicate that the episode budget for season five of Virgin River would range from $3 to $5 million each episode. After all, is said and done, season 5 might end up costing Netflix anywhere between $60 million and $90 million.

Episodes in the Virgin River (Season 5)

Each Virgin River season contained just 10 total episodes until the fourth. Season 5 will consist of twelve episodes, and Alexandra Breckenridge would like to thank everyone for watching the live stream and reaffirm that there will be a fifth season that is long and will consist of 12 episodes.

Virgin River’s fifth season: expectations

The series’ reputation would suffer if Season 4 ended on a cliffhanger. After witnessing her twins’ severe anguish and being frightened of losing them, Charmaine has finally acknowledged to Jack and Mel that the two boys are not really his.

Naturally, this will be one of the most important and major topics for season 5. Henderson and Breckenridge revealed that they were aware of the twin’s paternity in an interview with Glamour Magazine, which is conclusive proof that the twin’s father is a current cast member.

The three main characters are Brady, Mike, and Dr. Cameron.

One of the most cherished couples on the program, Mel and Jack, will have a major role in season 5. The most recent season should revolve around their daughter, their new little princess, and their love for one another. The head of the Virgin River Hope continues to work on her recovery with Lizzie’s help and, preferably, resumes her true tasks, which will allow her to keep Muriel as a friend.

Brie has made the decision to report the rape and launch a lawsuit against her ex-rapper boyfriend Don now that she has admitted to Bradt about the rape she carried out. The main themes of the most recent season may also revolve around Brie’s trial and her final assault on Jack. We essentially left Vince unconscious on the floor in the cabin with Preacher and Paige in order to bid farewell to Paige for the upcoming season. Season 4 introduced Julia as Preacher’s love interest, and there isn’t much evidence that a love triangle existed.

Doctor Danny’s grandson told Lizzie he didn’t want to date her because he had been diagnosed with Huntington’s disease, a very uncommon condition that damages and kills brain and nerve cells.

In the upcoming season, Lizzie and Doc might be impacted by Danny’s health. After learning of Danny’s illness, Lizzie, who has substantially grown in season 4, is anticipated to have made a decision about whether she wants to keep her relationship with Danny or if she still has a love for Ricky, who she left in the marine Bootcamp in San Diego. Lizzie won’t be able to stay away from Virgin River for long, though.

Finally, it should be noted that Breckenridge stated in her interview with Glamour that the showrunner, writers, and filmmakers of Lay4sets intend to add more LGBTQ+ storylines to this series in order to broaden its appeal.

The Virgin River cast (season 5)

This fifth season will star Alexandra Breckenridge as Mel Monroe, Martin Henderson as Jack Sheridan, Annette O’Toole as Hope McCrea, Tim Matheson as Dr. Vernon Mullins, Benjamin Hollingsworth as Dan Brady, Zibby Allen as Brie Sheridan, Gwyneth Walsh as Jo Ellen, Colin Lawrence as John Middleton, and Sarah Dugdale as Lizzie. Connie is represented by Nicola Cavendish, Jenny Cooper plays Joey Barnes, and Mark Ghanim plays Dr. Cameron Hayek.  Kai Bradbury portrays Denny Cutler, while Chase Petriw plays Christopher. Mike Balenzuela is portrayed by Teryl Grazzini, Muriel by Teryl Rothery, Vince by Steve Bacic, and Mike Valenzuela by Marco Grazzini. Christina Jastrzembski portrays Lydie, Trevor Lerner portrays Bert Gordo, Lucia Walters portrays Julia, Keith Walters portrays Nick, and Emma Oliver portrays young Mel.


It is challenging to forecast when season 5 will be available on Netflix given the current production. Using production schedules and release dates from prior years, it usually takes 6-7 months for the series to ultimately show up on Netflix. The series will probably come to a conclusion around 2023.
