There will be Virgin River 6, Netflix confirms the sixth season

Virgin River 6 will be there. This was announced by Netflix, the streaming giant that commissioned the series in 2018 and broadcast it on its streaming service starting from the following year. On the occasion of its first Upfronts event aimed at advertisers and held on Wednesday 17 May, the titan of video on demand confirmed that the fifth, highly anticipated season of Virgin River will arrive in the catalog on Thursday 7 September, and that the cast and crew will soon return to the set to shoot the episodes of the sixth season.

When Virgin River 6 comes out

Although the series got a renewal a few months ago, production has not yet started. Initially the first take for filming of season 6 was scheduled for July, but that didn’t happen. This is because the Writers Guild of America – the union for American screenwriters – has been on strike since May. Since July, however, the actors and actresses united under the union acronym SAG-AFTRA have also folded their arms.

Until an agreement is reached with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, i.e. the trade association that brings together producers and studios of the American majors, filming of the sixth season of Virgin River they won’t leave. In the meantime, we remind you that the Christmas episodes of the series – which in effect constitute “Part 2” of the fifth season – will arrive in streaming from 30 November 2023.

Mel will end up becoming fond of the peculiar inhabitants of Virgin River – such as the mayor Hope or Doc, her boss – and decides to move there permanently after having searched for a new beginning for a long time.

How Virgin River 5 ends

In the finale of the first part of season 5, Melissa Montgomery tries to escape but is arrested by Mike and the other policemen. Mike is shot by Gene, who appears out of nowhere and shoots him. Mike ends up in a coma, and Brady is in trouble: only Mike’s testimony, struggling between life and death, can rehabilitate him in the FBI investigation. Mike wakes up and, after being questioned by the investigators, confirms that it was Brady who foiled the worst in Melissa Montgomery’s shady dealings. Who does Brie choose to be with? In the end the woman makes a decision: she wants to be with Mike. Kaia decides to stay in Virgin River (also) for Preacher, to some disappointment on Jay’s part.

Suddenly, Kaia receives a phone call: a body has been found in the forest. It could be Wes’ body, and that worries Preacher. Charmaine receives an unexpected visit from… Calvin, who is alive and well and wants to be part of the twins’ lives. Mel suggests Jack take over Lilly’s farm: that’s where they can build their dream house. Jack is enthusiastic about the project and also talks about that land as a location for their wedding.

The story takes a leap forward, from the beginning of autumn to the gates of Christmas. While Mel and Jack are busy with the decorations, Joey – Mel’s sister – calls her to tell her that she has found some love letters intended for their mother and coming from Virgin River. Joey suspects that her mother had had an extramarital affair for years with a man who lived in Virgin River, and who – perhaps – could be Mel’s biological father.
