This series is characterised by its dramatic and romantic elements, making it a favourite among fans of those genres. As viewers are engrossed in watching the first part of Season 5, here's what we can share about Season 6 of Virgin River.

Amid the ongoing strikes by Hollywood actors, there is a promising update regarding Virgin River Season 6 that has surfaced online. While this popular Netflix drama was officially renewed for Season 6 in May 2023, the release date for Virgin River Season 6 has not been confirmed yet.

There were concerns about the show's future after Season 5 experienced a 13% decrease in viewership compared to the debut of Season 4 in July 2022. However, in September 2023, Netflix reaffirmed that Season 6 is indeed in the works. Currently, viewers can look forward to two more episodes as part of Season 5 Part 2, which is set to be released on November 30.

Expected Cast


While there haven't been any official casting announcements for Season 6 of Virgin River, it's highly likely that the two main stars, Alexandra Breckenridge as Mel Monroe and Martin Henderson as Jack Sheridan, will return. 

Additionally, we can anticipate the return of several familiar cast members, including Tim Matheson in the role of Dr. Vernon "Doc" Mullins, Annette O'Toole as Hope McCrea, Colin Lawrence playing John "Preacher" Middleton, Benjamin Hollingsworth, as Dan Brady, Sarah Dugdale, portraying Lizzie, Jenny Cooper in the character of Joey Barnes, Zibby Allen as Brie Sheridan, Marco Grazzini as Mike Valenzuela, Lauren Hammersley taking on the role of Charmaine Roberts, Mark Ghanimé as Dr. Cameron Hayek, Kai Bradbury playing Denny Cutler, Teryl Rothery as Muriel, Nicola Cavendish, portraying Connie, Stacey Farber as Tara Anderson, Gwynyth Walsh in the role of Jo Ellen, Chase Petriw as Christopher, Barbara Pollard as Melissa Montgomery, Kandyse McClure as Kaia Bryant, and David Cubitt taking on the character of Calvin.

With a wealth of source material from over 20 books and numerous storylines to explore, Virgin River has ample narrative threads to follow. However, Season 5, Part 1, left viewers on a surprising note as Lizzie revealed to Denny that she might be pregnant.
