Virgin River Season 3


David Mudd

Virgin River is an American Romantic drama that takes place in a remote small town of northern California. A small and remote place often becomes a safe choice when it comes to starting fresh. This is the reason Miranda, the protagonist, chooses Virgin River. Virgin River Season 3 is a must watch!

The show centres around her life and journey to a new place. At the same time, it breaks apart the popular and typical notion of small towns being all simple and easy. As the series progresses we see the multi-layered complications that are capable of rising in a small town as one. 

The series has 3 seasons and a 4th one is the talks. Before the renewal let us get you all caught up with the series’ latest season.
