Virgin River hasn’t officially had a head start for season 3 … yet. So, fans now have one question on their mind: Is the show coming back for season 3?
While details are scarce, here’s everything we know about Virgin River season 3, including the Netflix release date and plot details.
The Release Date for Virgin River Season 3:
Production Weekly, a trade publication for professionals working in TV and film, touch on the dates of season 3. The show was expected to start filming season 3 sometime between August 25 and December 11, 2020, but a delay was noticed due to the never-ending coronavirus pandemic.
Fans can expect season 3 to release in late 2021. Of course, there’s a chance production in Vancouver could be delayed due to COVID-19.
Fans Upset Over the Delay?

What’s the Plot for Virgin River Season 3?
Season 2 ends with a huge cliffhanger leaving fans on the edge of their seats. Mel finds Jack shot in his bar. In season 3 we are bound to find out if Jack will survive his injury.
Showrunner, Sue Tenney comments that the question of who shot Jack could drag on for several seasons. Hence, Season 3 is doubtful to provide us with an answer.
It will also be clarified what is behind Doc’s mysterious diagnosis. According to Tenney, the diagnosis will cause problems for Doc in his relationship with Hope and in his work.
And to add on, there will be a larger time jump between seasons 2 and 3.
Will There Be Happy Ending For Jack And Mel?
Jack and Mel confess their love for each other at the ending of season 2. Season 3 will answer the question of whether the two will start a relationship if Jack survives. Mel actress Alexandra Breckenridge is also hoping for a happy ending for Jack and Mel. Fans hope that too!
Let’s hope that we get to see season 3 for the series on Netflix by the end of 2021. That’s the best-case scenario for this series. It’s not unusual for a gap of about a year or more in between new seasons of any Netflix works, which will most likely be the case for Virgin River season 3.
