It’s been a long since Netflix has renewed Virgin River Season 2. However, the streaming giant is yet to announce the official release date for its romantic-drama series, since the show hasn’t saved its slot in Netflix’s September lineup. Although it’s expected to premiere soon this year. Despite shooting in California’s rural area, it seems the series didn’t get much affected by the ongoing crisis. In fact, it’s still a surprise that many new viewers have binged into the first season early this year. Perhaps because of small-town drama, which gets quickly connected with the audience.
Virgin River, created by Sue Tenney, is a romantic drama series on Netflix. The series is based on Robyn Carr’s novel of the same name. It follows Melinda “Mel” Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge), whose life changes after moving to a remote town of California, Virgin River. Initially, she believed it would be perfect to start a new life as a midwife in the Virgin River. However, shortly she figured out it’s not that simple at all, since the small-town lifestyle is quite different than what she expected. Moreover, to get rid of the painful memories, she first needs to learn to heal herself.
Virgin River Season 2: Has Production Started For The Second Season?
The filming for Virgin River Season 2 started in September 2019 soon after its first season aired on Netflix. It also concluded in December 2019 before the COVID-19 outburst. Despite filming in remote California in Vancouver, the filming remained unaffected with the current health crisis. However, Netflix has yet to announce the show’s premiere date.
Robyn Carr Excited For The Next Season
While speaking about the second season, Robyn Carr shared her excitement. She stated that she’s excited to learn that Hollywood is now willing to give the romantic genre a platform. It’s so thrilling to be a part of this. From the start, she has been telling that everything the readers had read until now would change when they watch the show. Thus some changes might look fresh and quite impressive when they tune into Virgin River Season 2, said Robyn.
Virgin River Season 2: When To Expect From The Second Season?
Besides the filming for the second season wrapped-up so early, it’s still quite unclear when Virgin River Season 2 would stream on Netflix. It seems like the next chapter would depict Christmas events. The trailer of the show has yet to reveal. Even they haven’t dropped any further clues about its air date. So, considering this, we can expect that Virgin River Season 2 to air late this year.
