Virgin River has amassed millions of fans, all of whom have been not so patiently awaiting its return. Now that season four has dropped (Jul. 20), the cast and crew is wasting no time in heading into season five. That’s right, the dust hasn’t even settled on the most recent season and production is already underway!

The series is based on the best-selling romance novels by author Robyn Carr, and they are as charming and easy to watch as you’d imagine. All the stars are investable, and the scenery and storylines are nothing short of entertaining. The show sucks you in like an old soap opera you’d watch with your grandma when you were sick and home from school.

For those who haven’t yet watched the show (what are you waiting for?), Virgin River follows Mel Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge), a nurse practitioner, midwife, and recent widow who left life in the city after her husband’s death. She starts over in a sleepy little town (circa Sleeping with the Enemy but less murdery), and starts her own practice in Virgin River. She and her boss Doc Mullins form an adorable friendship, but it’s her steamy romance with Jack (Martin Henderson) that will have you coming back for more.

One thing we love about the series is that, although it feels very Hallmark movie-of-the-week, it doesn’t shy away from big topics like postpartum depression, grief, death, and a fair amount of steamy sex scenes (if we do say so ourselves).

For those that need a refresher, season three ended when Mel finds out she’s pregnant, but she doesn’t know yet if the baby belongs to her late husband, Mark, or new love, Jack. It was the quite the ending, and one we’ve been anxiously awaiting an answer on.

According to Netflix, season four will follow finding out if Mel’s baby is Jack’s or her deceased husband, Mark. It will also see Hope healing from her car accident, Brie in a closer relationship with Mike and much more.

“Jack is very much a man of his word, and very much, very much in love with her,” showrunner Sue Tenney told EW. “Jack and Mel, their love and their commitment to each other, that doesn’t change. How he feels about her does not change. There’s circumstances that happen around them — and the reactions and how they deal with those things.”
