The filming of Virgin River season 2 started last year in September and wrapped up in December. And now, speculations are circling that the second installment will likely drop during the Holiday season.
The binge-worthy show, Virgin River season 2 is just waiting for Netflix to hit the green light for its release. Right after the series’ debut on the streaming platform, fans have been captivated by the small-town drama because of heartwarming scenes. At the same time, it was full of twists and turns up until the end.
With the first installment’s instant success, it did not take long for the streaming giant to close the deal. Having 10 episodes in the previous season, fans are clamoring for more stories of the romance genre.
Meanwhile, the series is based on the novel of the same name and authored by Robyn Carr. With just a few teasers over the months, fans are eager to know more about the series’ development.
Virgin River season 2 release date
Unfortunately, Netflix had not released too many details yet, including the release date. Although Netflix remains tight-lipped all these months, fans are theorizing that Virgin River season 2 will arrive on time for the holiday season. Earlier this year, some viewers were hoping that season 2 will drop in September. However, it was not included in Netflix’s Sept. 2020 list of shows.

Furthermore, Netflix has teased the fans for a broad 2020 release. As a result, avid viewers are now looking at a Dec. 2020 release. Still, the streaming platform is yet to reveal the date of its release. Besides, Netflix usually releases new shows a year after the initial broadcast.
It also wouldn’t be a surprise if the season will have Christmas themes given that the filming ran from September to December.
What to expect from season 2
The last season ended with a cliffhanger, with Mel finding out that Jack is having a baby with Charmaine, just as everything about them is going in the right direction. Mel and Jack’s new relationship may be hitting rock bottom. In the end, Mel decides to pack her bag and go back to her city life.
On the other hand, Paige’s backstory revealed that she is trying to hide from her abusive husband. Paige’s husband has been tracking her down ever since, with the claim that Paige had kidnapped their son, Christopher.
Thus, season 2 will shed light on Paige and Christopher’s whereabouts, and Mel’s decision on whether she will continue her relationship with Jack.
Virgin River season 3 is in development
Reportedly, season 3 is currently in the works after season 2 wrapped up earlier this year. Back in July, What’s New On Netflix reported that Virgin River season 3 had been renewed ahead of season 2 Netflix release.
