Season 2 of Virgin River officially has a premiere date! 

The Netflix drama will return less than a year after the first season debuted on Dec 6, 2019. 

Fans can catch up with Mel, Doc, and Jack Sheridan on Friday, November 27th! If you think about it, it’s the perfect day for a feel-good show to premiere as everyone will be sitting at home stuffed after Thanksgiving dinner. And since Black Friday sales are going virtual to tame the spread of COVID, less shopping gives everyone ample time to kick up their feet and binge-watch! 

Virgin River season 1 focused on Mel (played by This Is Us‘ Alexandra Breckenridge), a nurse practitioner who moved from LA to a remote Northern California town who was forced to face her past and grieve before being able to call Virgin River home.

Season 2 teases: “Engagement. Babies. Heartbreak. Murder. For a small town, Virgin River has its fair share of drama — and Mel Monroe is often in the middle of it.”

Yep, we can’t wait. 

Also returning for season 2 are Annette O’Toole, Lauren Hammersley, Colin Lawrence, and Grayson Gurnsey. Sarah Dugdale will join the cast as Lizzie. 

While there isn’t a full trailer of the upcoming season, the Netflix November lineup video shows some great snippets:

Woohoo! ‘Virgin River’ Snags Season 3 Renewal

Virgin River Season 2 announced

Netflix seems to love Virgin River as much as we do!

The series has snagged a third season renewal, TV Line reports

That means that we’ll continue to see Mel Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge) and Jack Sheridan’s (Martin Henderson) relationship evolve. 

Of course — and spoilers if you haven’t seen season 2 yet — we’ll find out Jack’s fate, hopefully get some answers to the “whodunit” mystery, see whether or not Charmaine will come around and allow Jack to be part of her growing family, and find out Doc’s prognosis.

There will also be some new faces joining the cast. 

5 Biggest Moments from ‘Virgin River’ Season 2

Zibby Allen from The Flash has signed on as a series-regular in the role of Brie, Jack’s sister. She’s described as a lawyer who is “smart, hard-charging, and ballsy” but also a “whole lot of fun.” With all the shadiness in the small town, they could use a good lawyer that’s on their side. Especially Preacher as he helps Paige with her situation.

Stacy Farber from Degrassi: The Next Generation will join as Lilly’s daughter, Tara Anderson, who will help her mom raise Chloe. 

While it’s not clear when the third season is set to premiere, both season 1 and season 2 arrived within a year of each other, so it’s likely Virgin River Season 3 will grace our screens in November!

Has ‘Virgin River’ Been Renewed for Season 3? Here’s What We Know

Virgin River Review Taken by Surprise Season 2 Episode 2

If you’ve binged Virgin River season 2 like we did, you’re likely looking for answers about a potential third season. 

After all, they can’t leave us on a cliffhanger like that, right?

**Warning – spoilers ahead **

In the final moments of season 2, Mel arrives at Jack’s bar after hours to find him bleeding out from a gunshot wound behind the bar. As she attempts to stop the bleeding, she urges him to hang in there. And then the season ends. Just like that. 

A third season absolutely must happen following that ending… but will it?

While no third season has been officially confirmed, Netflix would be rather silly not to give it the green-light. 

The second season, which arrived about a year after the first season debuted, was the most-watched show the week of its release. It broke records as it surpassed other popular shows that dropped in November including The Crown, The Queen’s Gambit, and Dash & Lily. 

Fans love Mel Monroe and Jack Sheridan — the data supports it!

When Might a Confirmation Happen?

A second season renewal announcement came two weeks after the first season dropped in December 2019. That means that it’s possible we can get word of a third season renewal by mid-December!

When Would a Third Season Be Released?

As previously mentioned, the second season of Virgin River graced our screens less than a year after season 1. With audiences so captivated by the scenic small town drama, it’s likely another season could arrive in time for the holidays next year.
 
Of course, we also have to take into consideration COVID production delays. While many shows have begun filming new season’s and figured out a way to keep cast and crew safe, it’s unclear how quickly Netflix will allow Virgin River to start up production again. 
 

Any Other Clues Pointing Towards a Third Season?

Funny you should ask! What’s on Netflix reported that the series was given the green light to begin working on season three in July. The outlet reports that season 2 was renewed before season 1 even dropped and that the same happened with season 3. ProductionWeekly stated that filming for season 3 was set to start from August 25th through December 11th. Let’s hope their sources were right! 

What Might Happen on Season 3?

There’s a lot that needs to be addressed on a third season. Of course, the mystery of who shot Jack is the most important. There’s a slim chance that the show would kill off its main character and leave Mel to pick up the pieces of her life, again, but the whodunnity is definitely going to drive the season. 
 
The series made it seem as though Calvin was the number one suspect, so finding out his fate (and the fate of his “lumer” aka fentanyl business) after the LAPD got their hands on Spencer’s testimony would be top of mind.
 
In the final episode, Doc was also about to inform Hope about his recent visit to the doctor. Audiences saw him having a dizzy spell and getting quite irritable, so we’d likely get a health update, which could potentially impact their upcoming vow renewal ceremony.
 
Of course, the season would address Charmaine’s baby drama. Last we saw, she wasn’t pleased with the rejection from Jack and promised he would not be the twins’ father. There are some theories she may be the one who pulled the trigger. Regardless, we’d likely see her give birth and the two of them navigate co-parenting while Jack pursues a romantic relationship with Mel.
 
And lastly, the continuation of Preacher’s altercation with Wesley’s identical twin brother, who came to town looking for revenge. 
 

Bottom Line

Based on the show’s success, all signs point to “go.”

Virgin River Season 2: Theories About Who Shot Jack in That Jaw-Dropping Cliffhanger

Virgin River Season 2 Theories: Who Shot Jack?

Virgin River season 2 ended on a jaw-dropping cliffhanger. For a quiet, scenic town, there’s sure a lot of danger lurking in those woods. 

If you’ve watched the season finale, then you know that Jack’s life is hanging in the balance.

In the last few moments of the episode, Mel arrived at Jack’s bar and found him bleeding out from an apparent gunshot wound.

This begs the question: who shot Jack? And why? 

There’s a few theories floating around on the internet, and we’ll get to those in a moment, but Martin Henderson, who plays Jack, told TV Line that he thinks the prime suspect isn’t the most obvious one. “I always joke that it’s most likely Charmaine. It does pop into your mind!”

Let’s break down some potential theories:

Charmaine

Charmaine is definitely one of the top suspects considering her big fight with Jack. Charmaine was pretty crazy throughout the season as she went through a series of mood swings. You just never knew what you were going to get with her. The pregnancy hormones likely played a role, but Charmaine’s been a pretty unstable character even before the pregnancy. And maybe after the constant back-and-forth with Jack, her jealousy over Mel, and finally realizing that they’d never be together romantically, she finally snapped. This wouldn’t be the first time Charmaine tried to “get revenge.” Let’s not forget she spread rumors about Mel being a home-wrecker and straight-up told Jack she wouldn’t allow him to be the father of their twins. We don’t know what a woman that’s been hurt is capable of. Hopefully, we’re all just misjudging Charmaine because I think if she can truly accept that Jack doesn’t love her in that way, they could make great co-parents. Otherwise, she’ll be in prison and Jack will be raising those babies with Mel! 

 

Calvin and/or Jimmy. 

Calvin (or one of his right-hand men like Jimmy) is the go-to suspect since he has plenty beef with Jack! It’s also the most obvious choice, so we have to consider if Virgin River is the kind of show that wants amp up the shock factor or take a more predictable route. The war with Calvin and Jack has been brewing for most of the second season with Jack meddling in his business and trying to stop him from expanding his fentanyl enterprise. We know Calvin isn’t above killing a man who has gotten in his way, but he’s also had plenty of chances to do it before. Why now? Maybe the LAPD shut down Calvin’s operation after Spencer testified and one of Calvin’s men acted out of loyalty since they knew Jack had a hand in it. Getting involved with Calvin, especially by trying to sabotage his business, is a recipe for danger and disaster. 

 

Brady

Brady is also a potential suspect, but I just don’t see him going through it. Despite his fallout with Jack, he respects him. Not to mention, he went out of his way to help Spencer get out of town, which allowed him to testify against Calvin’s “lumber” business. Brady may have been motivated by money at first, but when he realized what was going on, he realized he had to do the right thing even if it meant going to prison. So, while Brady could’ve shot Jack because he botched up his investment, I just don’t see it panning out. And if it turns out to be him, color me shocked! 

 

A Random Druggie Looking to Score?

We’ve seen our fair share of those in Virgin River this season, so maybe it wasn’t a planned shooting? Slim chances here, but you never know who might waltz into a bar in the middle of the night looking for trouble. 

 

Ricky

Again, super slim chances. Actually, the chances are nearly non-existent because Ricky is a good guy who has simply been struggling to make the right decisions because of his love for bad gal Lizzie. He may have exchanged some words with Jack previously, but there’s no chance he has it in him to shoot the guy who has given him a job and supported him! 

 

Who do you think the culprit is? Hopefully, Netflix will renew the show for a third season soon so we can get #JusticeforJackSheridan!
