We were delighted (to say the least) when news broke that Netflix had revived Virgin River to get a second season just two weeks following the strike series was first released at the end of 2019. Unfortunately, since then, we’ve heard very little about the upcoming ten episodes (we attribute coronavirus), so we did some digging.
Here’s everything we know about Virgin River period 2.
WHEN DOES ‘VIRGIN RIVER’ SEASON 2 PREMIERE?
According to this Buzz Paper, the next season wrapped up filming in December of 2019. But there is no official word on a premiere date. But, it’s been reported that it could be published in December of the year (fingers crossed).
WHAT’S SEASON 2 ABOUT?
To refresh your memory, season one centres around Melinda “Mel” Monroe, who answers an ad to function as a nurse practitioner from the remote California town (Virgin River) to receive a fresh start on life. She immediately realizes that living is as simple as she expected, and she soon learns her past secrets can stay buried for so long.
And while Netflix has not yet published a plotline to the coming season, fans are hoping it’s going to pick up right where the story left off: when Mel discovered that Jack and Charmaine were expecting a kid and packed her bags to leave Virgin River for great.
WHO’S IN IT?
A small number of stars are expected to reprise their roles, including Alexandra Breckenridge (Melinda), Colin Lawrence (John”Preacher” Middleton), Jenny Cooper (Joey Barnes), Lauren Hammersley (Charmaine Roberts), Annette O’Toole (Hope McCrea) and Tim Matheson (Vernon). Netflix also announced that Melinda Dahl would be joining the cast as Staci–Mel’s sister-in-law.
IS THERE A TRAILER?
Unfortunately, not yet. But we’re crossing our fingers for one in the future. In the meantime, we’ll only be rewatching season you to prepare.
