For the past few years, Virgin River fans have been able to count on Netflix to drop a new season of the hit series during the month of July as the perfect summer treat. However, it seems Netflix is shaking things up with Virgin River season 5… and not in a good way.
While many fans had anticipated season 5 would arrive sometime this July, Netflix has confirmed the series will not be returning as part of its summer lineup this year as many assumed. This means fans will have to wait until later this year for the next season to arrive.
The bad news is that season 5 won’t be arriving this summer. The good news is season 5 is still on track to release this year, just later than expected.
