The Netflix drama Virgin River Season 5 is already in production. While its new showrunner Patrick Sean Smith is cautious about spilling too many details, he is prepared to give TVLine a preview of the drama that will still be in store for characters like Mel, Jack, Charmaine (ugh! ), and others. We quizzed Smith on almost every significant Season 4 shock, from the likelihood of Ricky’s return from basic training to Mel giving birth to Jack’s child.
Although Smith is aware that viewers are nearly drooling at the prospect of Mel and Jack exchanging vows, this does not guarantee that the event of our dreams will take place right immediately. Season 4 of Virgin River is still a monster for Netflix. Season 5 of the television series is filming in British Columbia, Canada, a few weeks following the fourth season.
Here is everything we currently know about Virgin River Season 5, which will be available on Netflix in 2023. Virgin River, a love drama starring Alexandra Breckenridge, Martin Henderson, Colin Lawrence, and Jenny Cooper, had its Netflix premiere in December 2019.
Virgin River Season 5: Update On Release Date & Much More
Since then, Virgin River has quietly become one of the streaming service’s sleeper hits, attracting admirers from all over the world.
For those who don’t know, after season 3, an additional two seasons of Virgin River were ordered. That suggests we have been aware of a fifth season for a while.
Two-season orders are not new, but they are becoming less common. This leads us to believe Virgin River continues outperforming every internal measure Netflix report for the program.
Even though it doesn’t often make the news, the show has been a huge success for Netflix. The sitcom has amassed 333.92 million hours watched globally when it has been in the top 10s, according to Netflix’s top 10 hourly stats.
Following its premiere, Season 3 spent six weeks in the top 10 worldwide, accumulating 225.12 million hours of viewing between July 4 and August 15, 2021. Season 5 of Virgin River was scheduled to begin filming in March 2022, as we reported earlier in the year. Later, that was put off until July 2022, though even those dates were flexible and changed.
The delay’s cause was unknown, but Alexandra Breckenridge was eager to shoot in the summer because she claimed that shooting in Vancouver in the winter wasn’t that much fun. We can confirm that beginning on July 18th, 2022, filming will take place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and will continue through November 10th, 2022.
