How Many Episodes Will Virgin River Season 6 Have?
As of the renewal, it’s unclear what the plans are in terms of episode count. In the first three seasons, there were 10 episodes, whereas seasons 4 and 5 each had 12. We don’t know if the writers’ strike will affect future Netflix episode counts, but we’re expecting 10 or 12 episodes in season 6.
Virgin River Season 5 Release Date
According To Netflix Life, Netflix has announced a change in the release date of Virgin River season 5, much to the disappointment of eager fans. While previous seasons premiered in July, the upcoming season will now be released in the fall. Mark your calendars for Thursday, Sept. 7, 2023, as that’s when Virgin River season 5 will start streaming. Although the wait is longer than anticipated, it is a relief that Netflix will not be dividing the season into two parts and stretching the release across several months.

How Did Virgin River Season 4 End?
Virgin River Season 4 of the show presented three main mysteries: The identity of Mel’s baby’s father, the truth about Doc’s supposed grandson, Denny, and the person responsible for shooting Jack.
True to Virgin River’s style, all three mysteries were eventually solved. It was revealed that Jack is indeed the father of Mel’s baby, and they are now engaged. Denny turned out to be who he claimed to be, but he is struggling with a terminal illness. As for Jack’s shooter, it was Vince, the former brother-in-law of Preacher’s love interest, Paige. The complicated chain of events involved Vince searching for his deceased brother and accidentally kidnapping Paige’s son. Fortunately, Preacher managed to subdue Vince in a fight, and his police friend Mike is on his way to arrest him.
However, true to the nature of Virgin River, more questions arise. The circumstances surrounding drug dealer Calvin’s death in a boat explosion remain unclear. Additionally, Jack and Preacher’s acquaintance Brady is still involved in a significant drug operation led by Melissa, Nick’s sister. Jack’s sister, Brie, continues to assert herself against her former co-worker who assaulted her. Meanwhile, Hope and Doc are both coping with their respective medical issues: a traumatic brain injury from a car accident and a degenerative eye disease.
The most significant cliffhanger of all comes from Jack’s ex-girlfriend, Charmaine, who reveals that he is not the father of her twins, challenging everything we thought we knew.
How Well Did Virgin River Season 4 Perform On Netflix?
The television series has proven to be immensely popular on Netflix, despite not receiving widespread media attention. Upon the release of Season 4, it consistently ranked in the top 10 hourly charts on Netflix for a period of 6 weeks, accumulating a total of 304.790 million hours watched worldwide from July 17th to August 28th, 2022.
It should be noted that Season 4 had a slightly longer episode count, so a comparison between its performance and that of Season 3 during the first six weeks on the platform is as follows:

When Is Virgin River Season 6 Filming?
Virgin River fans eagerly anticipate the commencement of season 6 filming, but unfortunately, it is currently not feasible. In contrast to season 5, which began filming shortly after the release of season 4, the cast and crew are not expected to resume their work until later this year, at the earliest.
It remains uncertain whether the writers were able to initiate work on season 6 before the strike. If an agreement is not reached, the work stoppage could persist for several months. Consequently, the filming of Virgin River season 6 may not commence until autumn or winter 2023, or possibly even into 2024, depending on the progress of the writing process. Rest assured, we will provide you with further updates as we gather more information.
