Few Netflix series are as beloved by viewers as Virgin River, and to their surprise, they’ll be getting a lot more of it in the future. Seasons 5 and 6 of Virgin River will be available in the fall of 2023.
It makes sense that Netflix would want to continue airing the famous romantic drama series as long as possible. The Mel Monroe actor recently revealed that she hoped the show would be renewed for a sixth season, and we all got our wish as well!
Virgin River Renewed for the Sixth Season
Virgin River is getting Netflix again. The streaming giant confirmed that the soap opera starring Martin Henderson and Alexandra Breckenridge would return for a sixth season during its time in front of Madison Avenue ad buyers at its first-ever upfront presentation on Wednesday in New York.
On Twitter, Netflix announced that “Virgin River” has been renewed for Season 6:

The announcement of the extension coincides with the fall release of Virgin River’s fifth season on the primary streaming service, which has yet to be chosen. Netflix’s internal metrics show that the drama based on the same-titled novels by Robyn Carr has been a strong performer. (Like other streamers, this one does not disclose conventional viewing figures.)
Sue Tenney, who oversaw the Hallmark-like drama’s first four seasons, was replaced by Patrick Sean Smith as the fifth season’s showrunner. Production for season five is already over. When Netflix picked up the breakout smash for two more seasons (encompassing it’s fourth and fifth), Virgin River was last renewed in September 2021.

One of the few Hallmark-style dramas the streaming juggernaut has had success with as it strives to offer something for everyone is Virgin River. Others include the anthology series Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings, which Smith previously oversaw, Sweet Magnolias, Northern Rescue, and others.
