The Netflix sensation Virgin River has a vintage vibe. The relationships are slow-burning, the pacing is languid, and there aren’t many gadgets to be found—but Netflix moved quickly to capitalise on its unexpected popularity, promptly renewing Virgin River for seasons 4 and 5 after the premiere of season three. Virgin River’s fourth season has already premiered, and fans are eager to learn when season five will debut and what it could include.
However, now that season 4 has been out for a while, devoted viewers are eagerly speculating about season 5. Is a release date set yet? Fortunately, Virgin River is in for much more.
Virgin River Season 5 Announcement
Virgin River season 5 has officially started production in British Columbia, according to what’s on Netflix as of mid-July. In a July interview with PureWow, Annette O’Toole, who plays Hope, confirmed it: “I’m actually leaving tomorrow to go to Canada to film season five.” Additionally, the Virgin River Instagram account corroborated the information.
