Virgin River is the hit Netflix show that got us into the rocky relationship between Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) and Jack (Martin Henderson) in the small town. During its first four seasons, we watched their will-she-won’t-they relationship as we met the rest of the city, and it’s grown into the kind of show fans can’t miss from the moment it airs on the streaming platform. While season 4 came out earlier this month, the series is poised to continue, and it looks like they’ve already started filming season 5!
Star Ben Hollingsworth who plays Brady in the posted show some images on Instagram that shows him with a motorcycle and says, “Day 1 of Season 5. Lets gooooooooo! #VirginRiver #Netflixgiving fans the information they need about the small town of Virgin River. The show has been a constant twist for all of the characters outside of Mel and Jack’s relationship with constant love stories that keep the series moving forward as well as mysteries that have fans coming back.
With season 4, much of the story was outside of Mel and Jack’s baby, Brady facing his jail term for attempting to kill Jack in previous seasons. Again, this show has twists like no other that will constantly keep you on the edge of your seat while watching!
However, with season 5 there is plenty of drama to experience. New showrunner Patrick Sean Smith opened up about where the series was headed. “There’s a lot going on, and it took me a while to understand what… [the characters have] have been through all of them, where they are going and where I would like them to go,” he said TVLine in July. “I wanted it to be as seamless as possible.”
He also revealed that season 5 will pick up where we left off with season 4. “Season 5 will pick up right after season 4,” he said. “There is no time jump between four and five.” We were left with Mel and Jack finally engaged, the paternity of Jack’s alleged twins on the air, and more mysteries that would unfold at the end of Season 4, but with Season 5 already underway with the cast and crew hopefully We’d rather get answers now than never. But will we see Mel and Jack’s wedding to each other and the two happily heading into the fifth season? And what’s going to happen to Brady? We’ll have to wait and see, but this is exciting news for fans of the Netflix series!
