(Warning: Season 3 spoilers ahead!)
Will there be a Virgin River Season 4?
Let’s be honest: If numbers matter to Netflix, there probably will be a fourth season of Virgin River, because the ratings are stellar. In January 2021, Deadline reported that the series actually took The Crown‘s top spot in streaming rankings…which is a pretty big deal.
While Season 4 has yet to be officially confirmed as a definite go, some reports have suggested that Season 4 was already green-lighted and that production is set to begin in late July 2021, just a few weeks after Season 3’s premiere.
Virgin River showrunner Sue Tenney told TVLine in December 2020, “The way I look at the show is that we’re going to get as many seasons as we get, and when we get to that last season, we want [the characters] to be where [Carr] has them.”
When is the Virgin River Season 4 release date?
There’s no official release date yet for Virgin River Season 4. However, if filming is indeed kicking off in July 2021, barring any surprise delays, a spring 2022 release date may be in the cards.

Will Virgin River Season 4 reveal who shot Jack?
Though Season 3 showed Brady being arrested for allegedly shooting Jack, Tenney hinted that the real perp may still be out there. “There will be an arrest at the end of Season 3,” she told Us Weekly, “but everything is not the way it looks. The story is not over with the arrest.”
Will Hope be in Virgin River Season 4?
Tenney revealed that Hope wasn’t physically present in Season 3 of the show because the COVID-19 pandemic prevented Annette O’Toole from being able to film with her co-stars in person. The series had to pivot its Season 3 storylines, but Tenney says she has every hope that Hope will return for a potential fourth season. She told Entertainment Weekly, “If we have a fourth season, everyone is now vaccinated and the pandemic is not what it was. So, I would hope that we would have Annette back.”
