Thankfully, the time flew fast and Netflix confirmed that they will be heading back to the feeling again. On July 18, Netflix announced that the filming for the fifth season has begun, asking people to wait with excitement.

Virgin River Season 5 About

Virgin River has officially announced the renewal by posting a picture on their Instagram account, In the posted photo, fans were quick to see how Ricky (Grayson Gurney) was at the table read, assuming that he might be joining the cast but in the finale episodes, we saw him joining the Marines.

The fourth season is officially wrapped up and now, Henderson has begun filming for the upcoming season. In an interview with Glamour, he revealed, “The baby stuff gets interesting. I’m speaking without having read any of those actual scripts, but we’ve got some nice…a lot of stuff gets wrapped up and then there’s a whole bunch of new beginnings, new storylines,” he said. “I can’t give too much away. I know someone might move away. Someone might leave.”

He further added,  “What I’m hoping for in season 5 is seeing [Mel and Jack] get closer together through adversity rather than being pushed apart, because I think the audiences love that. You’ve got to have some bumps, but seeing them mature and deepen their love is going to be nice.”

In an interview with Screerant O’Toole revealed, “I’m hoping that there’s going to be more of [Hope] doing her mayoral duties than we’ve seen her do. Politics on a local level like that is really interesting and we haven’t seen that side of her…And there will be another big event, which I can’t say what it is, but that does seem to be a theme of every season where we do have one big thing where everybody comes together, and it’s very exciting. I wish I could say more about it, but it’s a more important event than what we’ve had in the past of just having a gathering.”

Moreover, there is huge potential for the Preacher to kill Vince, Though, the script is not confirmed by Patrick Sean told EW, “I can’t tell you [if he killed him],”

He added, “It is something that we pick up immediately. We pick up right after that incident in season 5.” He added: “I know how important that relationship is. Not just between Preacher and Paige, but also Preacher and Christopher, so it’s something that we will service and address in season 5.”

Talking about Melissa, Sean noted, “She was introduced as a new big bad for this season. And it’s been fun to dig into it. We got so little of her character when she was introduced. So it’s been fun to fill in the holes there and understand how she works differently than the men who have mostly been in charge of that part of the show. It does pose a threat to Jack, and it poses a threat to a lot of people in town. I’ve learned more about fentanyl than I ever thought I would in my life.”
