If you are a die-hard fan of virgin river, You’re lucky. The hit Netflix original series has become so popular that we’re already thinking about it Virgin River Season 5. The fourth season arrived in July 2022 and now fans are looking forward to the next episodes.
Thankfully, a fifth season of the fan-favorite comfort show will soon be on our watchlists, as Netflix has officially greenlit a fifth season Virgin River when they renewed the show for season 4. (fingers crossed for more!)
The series, based on the Robyn Carr series of novels, revolves around nurse and midwife Mel Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge) who moves to the remote northern California town Virgin River and assimilated into the close-knit community.
What could happen in Season 5? First we need to figure out who shot Jack before we can make any predictions for season five. First, let’s look at all the details we have for Season 5, including episode count, cast, filming date, and estimated release date.
Will Virgin River have a fifth season?
As Netflix announced on September 20, 2021, there will indeed be a fifth season of Virgin River. The streamer issued a two-season renewal for the hit original romantic drama series, making sure to return for at least Season 4 and Season 5.
Number of episodes of Virgin River Season 5
Previous seasons of Virgin River each contained 10 episodes, but that changes with the new season. As we have confirmed Virgin River Season 4 has a whopping 12 episodes, and so does Season 5!
What’s On Netflix reports this Virgin River Season 5 will have 12 episodes.
if Virgin River Season 5 is the final season of the series that hasn’t been confirmed yet (so don’t worry!), there’s always a chance the season could be split in half ozark and manifest.
For now, bet on Season 5 with 12 episodes and fingers crossed there’s more to come Virgin River come after these episodes.

Great news! On November 21 the official Virgin River The Instagram account announced that Season 5 had finished filming. The announcement came with a video of the cast dancing and celebrating to Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family.”

Cast of Virgin River Season 5
Even though Virgin River Season 4 isn’t out yet, we already have a pretty good idea of the cast Virgin River Season 5. And that’s because we had to see that snapshot of the table read above! Based on the photo, we can expect the following cast members to return for Season 5:

We’re excited to see what new cast members might be added Virgin River season 5
Does Virgin River season 5 have a release date?
From November 2022 the Virgin River Season 5 release date has not been announced. Virgin River Season 4 premiered on Wednesday July 20th and filming of the new season only packed, so it makes sense that we don’t have a release date for the next installment just yet. But of course we can make an educated guess.
Since the premiere in December 2019 Virgin River aired one season per year. As such, we shouldn’t expect Season 5 to release until mid-2023. Given that production has ended, another July release date could be very likely. At this point, What’s On Netflix predicts we might see Virgin River Season 5 until summer 2023, and we have to agree on that!
Virgin River Season 3 debuted in July as did the upcoming season 4, so a July release of season 5 would make sense.
