What is Virgin River all about

Virgin River is a small town drama set in rural California. Although the series is based in California, the filming takes place in  Canada. Originally a Hallmark drama series, Netflix took the liberty of investing in Hallmark’s idealistic romance novels.

The series is base on the novel of Robyn Carr. Furthermore, the production of Virgin River season 2 is handled by Sea to Sky Productions ULC.

Mel Monroe(Alexandra Breckenridge) moved into the simple town of Virgin River hoping for a fresh start. The mayor of Virgin River, Hope Mcrea (Annette O’Toole) hired Mel as a midwife and nurse practitioner without the knowledge of the town doctor (Tim Matheson). Tension began with Mel and Dr. Mullins when Mel accidentally called Dr. Mullins old. From that moment, the two constantly argued with each other.

Furthermore, the story took a turn when Mel and Jack (Jack Sheridan) met and became fast friends. In the later part of the series, Mel and Jack found love, until the news on the pregnancy of Jack’s girlfriend broke out.  The finale of Virgin River season 1 ended with Mel packing her bags to go home.
