Virgin River Season 3: Trailer, Premiere Date, Cast, and Everything You Need to Know

Who shot Jack?

Megan Vick

Virgin River Season 3 will be here before you know it, and we are more than ready to head back to that quaint mountain town to have our burning questions answered after that Season 2 cliffhanger. As you probably remember, at the end of Season 2, Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) found Jack (Martin Henderson) bleeding out on the floor of his bar after being shot by an unknown assailant. Doc (Tim Matheson) has been given a grim diagnosis by his doctor, but we didn't get a chance to find out exactly what's going on with his health before the season ended. Paige (Lexa Doig) skipped town and left her son with Preacher (Colin Lawrence) after her ex-husband's twin brother discovered where she was. Being a legal guardian may put serious wrinkles in Preacher's plan to move to San Francisco and start a new life as the chef of a five-star restaurant. 

What else can you expect in Virgin River Season 3? Here's everything we know so far. 

Latest News

The trailer for Virgin River Season 3 has officially arrived, and wow, there is a lot to take in. First, it looks like Jack survived the gunshot, and he and Mel are going full steam ahead. There's talk of marriage and babies, but Jack is unwilling to go for the full family package. Since it seems by the end of the trailer like people are still trying to kill him, maybe he's not wrong that settling down at the moment could be a dangerous situation. We also find out what's going on with Doc, and it's not as bad as we thought, but it is definitely going to lead to some heartbreak in the season. 

While the trailer answers some burning questions, we still have a lot more left unanswered, and July can't get here soon enough. 

Premiere Date

We have a premiere date for Season 3! The new season will debut Friday, July 9, and will consist of 10 episodes. Check out the cast announcing the news. 


The aforementioned actors will all be returning for Season 3, along with Daniel Gillies, who will continue to make "visitations" to Mel as her dead husband. There are also new faces heading to Virgin River for the new season. Zibby Allen will play Brie, Jack's fun-loving lawyer sister. Stacey Farber joins the cast as Tara Anderson, Lily's (Lynda Boyd) daughter.
