While we’re still waiting for an official release date to be revealed for Virgin River season 4, we at least know the show, based on the series of novels by Robyn Carr, is “coming soon” in 2022. But with Netflix’s announcement that a fifth installment in the original series is already green-lit, it’s no surprise that many are wondering whether we could expect Virgin River season 5 to drop in 2022, too.

As reported by Hollywood North, filming for Virgin River season 4 began in Aug. 2021, and in Sept. 2021, Netflix announced it had renewed the series for a fifth season!

We expect Virgin River season 4 to be released mid-2022, our guess being July, which would mark a year on since its third installment. Or it could revert back to its winter release schedule, following a similar pattern like the earlier seasons. But with the stars already confirming season 4 has wrapped up filming, what’s the likelihood of getting Virgin River season 5 this year as well?

Is Virgin River season 5 coming in 2022?

Just two months after season 3’s highly anticipated release, Netflix confirmed that seasons 4 and 5 were in the works. While the highly romantic series is guaranteed to return for its fourth season in 2022, it’s still pretty unclear whether Virgin River season 5 will return this year too.

According to IMDb Pro, the fifth installment “will air 2022”, but we would take this information with a grain of salt, as this could just be a provisional release date and is likely to change. But needless to say, it still gives us a glimmer of hope that we could return to the sweet town of Virgin River again a lot sooner.

Virgin River season 5 release date predictions

Although we’re definitely hoping for a 2022 release, it’s more likely that the series will return for its fifth season in 2023. Of course, until we get season 4 release date, it’s unlikely we’ll get more information about season 5. At any rate, we’ll make sure to keep you informed on all Virgin River news and updates to come!

All episodes of Virgin River seasons 1, 2 and 3 are available to stream on Netflix.
