Yes, I do. I’ve been meaning to ask you: Do you wanna do a season 5? — Alexandra Breckinridge.

Virgin River season 3 dominated Nielsen’s weekly streaming rankings last summer, dethroning first The Crown and later Manifest for weeks at a time.

Virgin River season 3 left its fans with some major cliffhangers, so there’s avid interest in what the Netflix series filmed in season 4.

Mel is pregnant when season 3 ends but she doesn’t know if the father is Jack or Mark. Showrunner Sue Tenney told TVLine that fans will find out the identity of the father by the end of the fourth season.

Season 4 wrapped filming last December and should stream this summer on Netflix.
