Netflix’s popular series Virgin River is back again with another season on July 20 with lots of emotions and romantic moments with the lead pair Mel and Jack. The well-aware fact about how the show fulfills the missing space of shows like Gilmore Girls and other quintessential American town life of varied characters and their connections formed in the neighborhood kind of dramas.

The series has been a classic representation of narratives drawn from soap operas that explore rich storylines having a melodramatic ride for a theatrical appeal. Working with the entire cast isn’t an easy job for the makers and till now we have seen how the directors have fleshed out the interesting character arcs in every season and the cliffhangers that have managed to keep the audience hooked on the show.

Season 4 Highlights

Season 4 of Virgin River begins with a bang right after we saw the shocking finale of season 3 which left us with several questions and generated curiosity among the audience.

In the first episode of the new season, we meet Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) and Jack (Martin Henderson) in a completely different space where they are happily married and are soon going to welcome a baby. However, in the meantime, Jack is having nightmares and doubts in his mind about whether he is the father of the baby. He tries hard to fight them and is supportive of Mel as it is a high-risk pregnancy. The rest of the season focuses more though on Jack’s mental health.


The other subplots revolve around Hope’s (Annette O’Toole) recovery stage from the traumatic brain injury. There is also Bradely’s (Ben Hollingsworth) incarceration that has formed a big part of season 4. Though the season focuses more on Mel’s pregnancy and making sure she remains safe there are high chances that the season answers a lot of questions about whether the baby belongs to Jack and who had shot him in the previous season.

The twelve-episode season 4 has a lot to give away. It feels as if the story is being stretched and lengthened through emotions the show tries to strengthen its way. The performances remain consistent after the cliffhanger ending of the third season and this new one seems to be worth the wait.

The show lacks its pace with weak dialogues but keeps us hooked with its corny but addictive nature. The best selling point of Virgin River is its combination and simplistic way of storytelling that makes it wholesome and emotionally rich.

With Mel and Jack’s heart-melting love story that makes us root for them and through the conflicts that they are about to face in the new season, the show makes the most of it. Based on the books by Robyn Carr, the show has managed to do justice to the content of the American novel adapting well to its apt casting.
