Nearly a year has passed since we were able to catch up with the love stories and unexpected occurrences of the residents of the little California hamlet where the Virgin River is set. We’ve had a lot more information regarding the next episodes of Virgin River Season 4 thanks to Netflix’s silence over the past few months.
Virgin River Season 3 ended with a lot of cliffhangers that need to be answered, and we can all be excited for the show’s return to the small screen now that we’ve learned more about the upcoming Season 4 features.
Virgin River Season 4: Release Date
Netflix announced in mid-May that the fourth season of Virgin River will premiere on July 20, 2022. Season four of the show was finished filming in 2021.
Official Synopsis of season 4:
“Despite not knowing whether her baby belongs to her deceased husband, Mark, or Jack, [Mel] has a sense of optimism. For years she yearned to be a mother, and her dream is one step closer to reality.
While Jack is supportive and excited, the question of paternity continues to gnaw at him,” it reads. (A love triangle? Hasn’t Jack been through enough?!) “Complicating matters is the arrival of a handsome new doctor, who’s in the market to start a family of his own,” the description continues.
“Hope is still healing from her car accident, and the lingering psychological effects of her brain injury will have profound consequences for both her and Doc. Brie, intent on proving the innocence of the man she loves, unexpectedly finds herself in a closer relationship with Mike and one step closer to Calvin’s violent criminal web.
Even as Preacher forges a new romantic connection, he can’t help but hold out hope for being reunited with Christopher and Paige.”
Who Will Return in Virgin River Season 4?
Many of the important characters, as well as that one mysterious visitor, were probably mentioned while you were reading through the complete summary earlier. According to rumors, all the cast members who have previously appeared in Virgin River and have not died or been forced to escape the village will return for Season 4.
This includes Annette O’Toole’s meddling, grumpy mayor Hope, who was shown in the newly published images for the new episodes as being primarily off-screen for the whole of Season 3.
How the New Member Will Complicate Things?
Virgin River Season 4’s full synopsis has let us in on what we’ll receive when the new episodes eventually arrive, and part of that involves a fascinating new character. It’s hard to predict which cliffhangers will be addressed immediately and which will require more time to offer answers.
No idea how a new doctor will affect Mel and Jack’s relationship, which has only lasted a few months in the time period of the series, but this does seem ominous, doesn’t it?
Especially with Jack’s (quite natural) troubles in dealing with the thought that Mel might not be giving birth to his child. But! Maybe Charmaine will be less obnoxious this season because the rest of the synopsis doesn’t include her.
What Will happen in Virgin River Season 4?
For many characters, the third season of Virgin River ended on a cliffhanger, including the poisoning of Preacher by a former friend of Paige’s in an attempt to kidnap Christopher, and Mel and Jack’s struggle to deal with Mel’s pregnancy news, but they don’t know if the father is Jack or her late ex-husband Mark.
As a result of finding out Ricky was enlisting, Lizzie ended their relationship and went back to her slimy LA ex-boyfriend. Brady was arrested for the shooting death of Jack after a similar gun was found in his car.
Charmaine and Todd threatened Jack with an explosive custody battle over the twins. And, of course, Hope is in the hospital with a brain injury following a car accident.
Will Season 4 Answer All the Questions?
As Martin Henderson (Jack) explained, “Season four reveals and answers all the questions, but then presents some more.” It’s a “love/hate” situation for the audience, who “love but loathe” the cliffhangers, according to the author.
It’s safe to say that there will be plenty of fresh storylines in the upcoming season, but there will also be plenty of established ones. If Ricky decides to join the military, we may have to say goodbye to Virgin River—and Lizzie—for the time being.
For your comfort, the actors who portray Mel and Jack have stated that they will be able to make it work (opens in a new tab) despite her pregnancy’s unknowns. Following her absence for the entire third season, Paige is anticipated to return, and hopefully, she will be reunited with Christopher.
Todd and Jack, the biological father of Charmaine’s children, will almost certainly clash after she gives birth to the twins. As for Jack, we’ll ultimately discover who killed him.
Tenney told TV Insider that the fourth season will be a roller coaster from the get-go.”There’s a big reveal when we open Season 4 that puts certain people in jeopardy,” she added.
