There will be a Virgin River season 3, apparently
Virgin River 3 – the series with Alexandra Breckenridge and Martin Henderson has already been renewed for a third season even before the debut of the second one.
The news got leaked by Production Weekly, a publication dedicated to film and television industry insiders that summarizes the status of all the ongoing productions in the North American territory.
When is Virgin River 3 released?
According to reports, the shootings for the third season will take place from August 25 to December 11 in Vancouver, the location where the series is filmed since the first season. The province of British Columbia was indeed among the first areas to allow the opening of movie sets after the Covid-19 health emergency. Of course, new regulations and safety protocols have been adopted.
To date, Netflix has officially confirmed only the second season. The filming of the season ended in late December last year, and a debut is scheduled for Friday 27 November. However, the streaming platform did not yet announce the start of the production of the third season, which actually has already entered into action.
It is not clear if the first take of the third season actually took place by the end of August, or if it has been postponed. Given the unpredictability of the pandemic, a change of program or an extension of production times has not to be excluded.
If the filming will end by the beginning of December, just like the second season did, Virgin River 3 could arrive in the Netflix catalog at the end of 2021. Indeed, both of the previous two seasons have been premiered in late November and early December, making Virgin River the ideal binge-watching during Christmas holidays.
Virgin River 3 plot: previews
Certainly, the material to draw from is not lacking. The Virgin River literary saga signed by the prolific American author Robyn Carr consists to date of twenty-one novels. The twenty-second one, “Return To Virgin River,” lands in American bookstores on October 13. It will be the first novel of the series to be published after an eight-years wait.
Virgin River 3 cast: actors and characters
The cast of the third season cannot miss the protagonists Alexandra Breckenridge (Melinda Monroe) and Martin Henderson (Jack Sheridan).
Alongside them, we expect to find Tim Matheson (Vernon “Doc” Mullins, the village doctor), Annette O’Toole (Mayor Hope McCrea), Lauren Hammersley (Charmaine Roberts), Colin Lawrence (John “Preacher” Middleton , a friend and colleague of Jack), Grayson Gurnsey (Ricky, a young employee at Jack’s bar), Jenny Cooper (Joey Barnes, Melinda’s sister), Sarah Dugdale (Lizzie), Benjamin Hollingsworth (Dan Brady, a veteran like Jack) and Daniel Gilles (in the flashbacks, he plays Melinda’s husband Mark Monroe, who tragically died).
Virgin River 3 episodes: how many are there
Like the previous seasons, the third season will probably also consist of ten episodes.
Never change a winning team: Sea 2 Sky Productions will once again be the production company in charge of making the series on behalf of Netflix. Sue Tenney will be involved again as showrunner, with Roma Roth and Chris Perry in the role of producers.
Virgin River 3 streaming: where to watch it
Virgin River 3 streaming will be available exclusively on Netflix, which distributes it in the over 190 countries where the service is active.
