Netflix has set a release date for Virgin River season 4, and it’s just a matter of weeks away. With 12 episodes, Season 4 will be the most comprehensive ever in the love drama’s history. There’s a new season 4 trailer out, and it shows a lot of thorny relationships amongst the cast members.

Mel Monroe, a midwife and nurse practitioner from Los Angeles, is the focus of Virgin River, a drama about her life in a tiny rural village. When she settles down, she falls in love with bar owner/former Marine Jack, who owns the establishment (Martin Henderson). Mel also works for Doc Mullins’ (Tim Matheson’s) practice, however the two have their disagreements.


Season 3 of Virgin River concluded with Mel telling Jack she was pregnant. What’s more, whose child is it? As soon as Mel got home from her vacation to Los Angeles, where she had made the decision to utilize an embryo that had been created with her deceased husband, she determined to become pregnant. Then then, Jack may be the father, and he already has three children on the way (including the twins with ex Charmaine).

Virgin River season 4 plot and season 3 ending explained

In the midst of Mel and Jack’s fragile reunion, she discovers out she’s pregnant. It is revealed that Mel is pregnant as Jack attempts to propose, although the baby may not belong to him.


Does this mean that Jack will be forced to give up legal custody of his unborn children?

In a shocking turn of events, Charmaine informs Jack that she and Todd are now legally married. As for Todd, he wants full custody of the twins she’s about to give birth to. To employ the family lawyer Jack interviewed earlier in the season, Jack will need to come up with the retainer money.

Do you think Brady shot Jack?


When Jack was shot, Brady had earlier confirmed that he had been in the pub, but adamantly denied that he had shot his old buddy. Then Mike discovered a pistol in Brady’s vehicle, and Brie was ready to believe him. He needs the aid of a lawyer to establish his claims.

Yes, he’s OK.

That Paige intends to give herself in for inadvertently murdering her ex-husband, Sally, Paige’s best friend, tells Preacher. For the sake of her small son Christopher, the Preacher tries to dissuade her from making the decision. Even though Sally seems to have drugged Preacher, she still leaves him in the woods. Christopher’s ex-brother, husband’s Vince, is snooping about the home.


What will happen to Hope?

Hope spent the most of the season away from home caring for an elderly family member. A tragic vehicle accident left her with a brain damage when she eventually returned. As a result of an infection, she has been placed in an artificial coma.

Doc’s grandchild?


When a young guy comes up at the inn asking for Jo Ellen’s help in finding his grandpa, she recognizes him as Doc right once. However, Doc and Hope never had children. Is it possible that he is the offspring of Doc’s long-ago liaison with Charmaine’s mom?

The fate of Lizzie and Ricky is uncertain.

Ricky has been accepted into the Marine Corps. After telling Lizzie, she claims she would have backed him had he not broken up with her first. However, she no longer has faith in him. In the meanwhile, Lizzie’s ex-boyfriend Parker reappears and declares his love for her.


A few additional details may be found in the official description provided by Netflix: “Mel enters Season 4 with a positive outlook, despite not knowing whether her baby is from her departed husband, Mark or Jack. She’s been wanting to have children for a long time, and now she’s one step closer to realizing her goal. Paternity questions continue to haunt Jack despite his enthusiastic support. The entrance of an attractive new doctor, who wants to raise a family of his own, complicates things.

“It will take a long time for Hope to recover from her brain damage and the emotional toll it will take on both her and Doc. Calvin’s violent criminal network and Brie’s deeper friendship with Mike are unintentionally intertwined as Brie pursues her goal of establishing Calvin’s innocence. Although Preacher has found new love, he can’t help but want to be reunited with Christopher and Paige in the future. “
