As soon as a new season of Virgin River ends, fans are eager to find out as much as they can about the next season… including when it will be released. Thankfully, Virgin River season 5 is on the way, but the wait for Mel and Jack’s next chapter continues.
The fifth season of Virgin River will contain 12 new episodes and pick up in the aftermath of the shocking season 4 finale revelation. Just as Mel and Jack are starting to build their lives together as a family, a paternity bombshell threatens to turn their worlds upside down.
While the first two seasons were released in the fall, the third and fourth seasons dropped in the summer, and the fifth season looks to follow suit. As filming gets into the thick of it, we’re learning some intriguing teases about what to expect in season 5.
Unfortunately, Virgin River season 5 won’t be released on Netflix in October 2022. The cast and crew are still hard at work filming the new episodes. But some new details have emerged from set, and we’re breaking them all down below!
Virgin River season 5 updates October 2022
As of October 2022, Virgin River season 5 remains in production in Canada. The cast and crew have shared behind-the-scenes photos and videos from set but have been careful not to give anything away. Season 5 kicked off production in July 2022 and will last through November for an estimated release in summer 2023.
During filming for Virgin River season 5, the cast and crew celebrated hitting the 50 episode milestone with a party on set. The 50th episode will be the eighth episode of season 5, and we can’t wait to see what special event occurs to ring in the milestone onscreen.
Another tease from set included a photo of Alexandra Breckenridge and Martin Henderson filming what appears to be a very exciting scene for Mel and Jack. The couple looks to be attending some sort of celebration, but only time will tell if it was thrown in their honor.
