Virgin River Season 5: Plot

At a set visit last year, executive producer and writer Erin Cardillo told Tudum, “What you can expect from Season 5 is a lot of answers to the questions you have been waiting for.” All of these issues—Hope’s recuperation, Doc’s diagnosis, Paige’s predicament, Brie and Brady’s romance—will be handled.

During their time together on set, executive producer and writer Richard Keith made a promise to Tudum: “There are some new characters coming to Virgin River this season that will mix things up a bit.”

“Season 5 is going to continue to stay true to what fans have loved about the show from the beginning; it feels like a community that we all belong to and that we’re all a part of, it’s very comforting, it gives you hope, and I think all of that is stuff that people can’t get enough of these days,” Jinny Howe, Netflix’s Head Of Drama, Development, told Deadline in August.
