Virgin River Season 3 dropped on Friday, July 9 and there was so much drama that went down in that mountain town. To refresh your memory about what went down before the most recent season, Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) found Jack (Martin Henderson) bleeding out on the floor of his bar after being shot by an unknown assailant at the end of Season 2. Doc (Tim Matheson) had been given a grim diagnosis by his doctor, and 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 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.
Season 3 confirmed that Jack survived being shot, but things only got more complicated for all our favorite characters after Jack started to recover. After binging Season 3, we are already starting to ask if there will be a Virgin River Season 4, but until Netflix makes an official renewal decision, here's what we found out about everything that happened in Season 3.
For those that have finished watching Season 3, check out what executive producer Sue Tenney told TV Guide about all of those big cliffhangers and reveal that "there's a reason" [spoiler] was arrested. Alexandra Breckenridge also helped us dig into Mel's baby news and what it means for the future.
If you haven't watched the season yet, Breckenridge also talked to TV Guide ahead of Season 3's premiere and teased that Mel and Jack have a major relationship obstacle this season, and it's not just about Jack getting shot. See what else she had to say about the "big rollercoaster" of a season.
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.
We have a premiere date for Season 3! The new season debuted 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.
