Virgin River devotees, rejoice. You’re in luck. Virgin River season 5 is already in our minds thanks to the success of the Netflix original series. With the highly anticipated fourth season just hours away, we don’t blame you if you’re curious about what will happen to the show following these brand-new episodes.
Fortunately, a fifth season of the beloved comfort show isn’t at all unlikely since Netflix officially approved the fifth season of Virgin River when they renewed the series for season 4.
Mel Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge), a nurse practitioner and midwife, is the main character of the series, which is based on the Robyn Carr novel series. The plot follows Mel as she settles into the tight-knit community in Virgin River, a small town in Northern California.
What may occur during season 5? Before we can begin making predictions for the fifth season, we must first determine who shot Jack. For the time being, let’s examine all the information we do currently have about season 5, including its number of episodes, cast, start date, and anticipated release date.
Has the fifth season of Virgin River been announced?
Yes, it has! Virgin River’s third season, which debuted in July 2021, was followed by a fourth and five seasons, which Netflix announced just two months later.
When announcing the announcement, Jinny Howe, Netflix’s VP of original programs, told USA Today that “[With] everything that’s been going on in the globe, people are searching for more and more—not only that comfort but also that feeling of optimism and that feeling of community.
“I think this was more of a proof point that this is a really essential area of programming for us. Everything really came together in a way that was incredibly organic.
When might season five of Virgin River be available?
We probably won’t have anything before 2023 as production began in July 2022. Season one was released in December 2019, Season 2 in November 2020, and Season 3 in July 2021, all in keeping with the trend of previous release dates.
Later, in July 2022, season four debuted. That must imply that another one is expected next year, right? In the summer of 2023, we are pinning our hopes.
Episodes of Virgin River season 5
The Virgin River television series’ previous seasons each had 10 episodes, but the current season is different. As we’ve confirmed, season 4 of Virgin River contains a whopping 12 episodes, and season 5 will also have 12 episodes.
Don’t worry! If Virgin River season 5 turns out to be the series’ final season—which hasn’t been announced yet—always there’s a potential that it will be divided into two parts like Ozark and Manifest.
For the time being, bank on season 5 to include 12 episodes, and cross your fingers for more Virgin River to air following that.

What is the season 5 plot of Virgin River?
Fans were once again left on a major cliffhanger in season 4 when Charmaine revealed that Jack wasn’t the biological father of her twins as we had previously assumed.
No particular story points have been released thus far, although the new showrunner, Patrick Sean Smith, told TVLine(opens in new tab) that Season 5 picks up immediately after Season 4. Between four and five, there is no time difference.
The news that Jack was the biological father of Mel’s unborn child led to the engagement of our favorite pair, Mel and Jack. Consequently, hopefully, season 5 will feature their wedding.
In conclusion, it appears like season 5 will uncover some mysteries and provide the answers we’ve been looking for.
