Virgin River has been dominating Nielsen’s weekly streaming rankings 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 is filming here 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.
Mel’s cabin is played by the 70-year-old McCrea cabin in North Vancouver’s Murdo Frazer Park, with interiors in studio.
Jack’s bar is played by The Watershed Grill in Brackendale near Squamish, with interiors in studio.
