5 best Netflix movies and shows to watch if you love Virgin River

Can’t get enough of the Netflix original series Virgin River? Well, you’re in luck. The underrated dramedy returns for a new season to answer all of those lingering questions. But what happens when you’re finished with your binge and need a new show to watch?

Naturally, Netflix offers plenty of like-minded content for Virgin River fans to enjoy, but we’ll save you the trouble of scrolling through rows and rows of thumbnails. Once you have consumed both seasons of the hit series, these five movies and shows are the perfect chaser.

Between a pair of romantic comedies that might as well be set in the show’s small town to two series of extremely similar nature, you should keep your watch list stocked with this engaging lineup of entertainment, beginning below with a nostalgic favorite.

5. Dawson’s Creek

Although the classic WB teen drama series might not be as family-friendly as Virgin River, its small-town charm still peaks through the angst. Taking place in the fictional town of Capeside, Massachusetts, recent Netflix addition Dawson’s Creek centers on tight-knit friends Dawson (James Van Der Beek), Joey (Katie Holmes), Pacey (Joshua Jackson) and Jen (Michelle Williams) as they come of age and learn about love.

Its frank conversations about sexuality, relationships and everything adolescent lend the series a heightened maturity for a teen series. You’ll never meet TV teens as emotionally intelligent or well-spoken as Capeside’s finest. Virgin River fans will adore the character-driven stories and, of course, the various will-they-or-won’t-they relationships on Dawson’s Creek. It’s a throwback worthing watching.
