Just a few weeks ago, the second season of Netflix’s romantic drama Virgin River premiered. Now, while we’re all still recovering from that killer cliffhanger that ensued in the season finale, an exciting announcement has been made — Virgin River has been picked up for a third season!
Virgin River, which is based on the book series by author Robyn Carr, follows the story of a widowed big-city nurse (portrayed by Alexandra Breckenridge) who moves to a remote town in northern California. As Mel meets many new faces and learns the ins and outs of living in a small town, she must subsequently learn how to heal and open up her heart again. Virgin River also stars Martin Henderson, Colin Lawrence, Lauren Hammersley, Annette O’Toole, Tim Matheson, and more.
Breckenridge took to social media today to share the good news with fans.

Additionally, two new cast members have been revealed for season 3! First up is The Flash‘s Zibby Allen, who is taking on a series regular role as Jack’s lawyer sister Brie. Stacey Farber (Diggstown), meanwhile, will be portraying Lilly’s daughter Tara Anderson.
Season 2 of Virgin River left fans on the edge of their seats, as Preacher suddenly found himself responsible for Paige/Michelle’s son Christopher, Doc received ominous news from his doctor, and Mel found Jack — who was shot — bleeding out on the floor at the bar.
Stay tuned for more news on Virgin River!
