On Friday (July 8), Netflix released the Virgin River season 4 trailer. Fans will be able to return to the small town later this month, on July 20, for the 12-episode season.
Based on the 20-plus book series by Robyn Carr, the series follows Alexandra Breckenridge (This Is Us) as Mel Monroe, a woman who becomes a midwife and nurse practitioner in a small town in northern California. In the previous season, Mel got pregnant, so fans will hopefully find out if Mark or Jack is the father when July 20 rolls around. Martin Henderson (X), Colin Lawrence (Riverdale), Lauren Hammersley (Orphan Black), Annette O’Toole (Smallville), Tim Matheson (The West Wing), and Benjamin Hollingsworth (Code Black).

The adaption of the Carr novel is run by Sue Tenney (Good Witch). Tenney acts as a showrunner, lead writer, and executive producer. She executive produces with Roma Roth, Christopher E. Perry, Jocelyn Freid, Carr, Debra Fordham, and Lisa Marie Peterson. Sally Dixon, Ian Hay, and Amy Palmer Robertson produce.
On top of the premiere date for Virgin River season 4 being imminent, fans will have at least one more season. Last year, it was reported during its third season that it would be given two more seasons, getting viewers through until the fifth season. Due to its popularity and the extensive source material, there is plenty of ground for the series to continue if it can maintain its success.
Season 4 of Virgin River has a high bar to reach. The second and third seasons ranked high on the Nielsen rankings. Its second outing had 1.79 billion minutes watched. While going below that number, its third season went out on top with 1.45 billion minutes. If the next season can get in this range, it will make for a strong summer for Netflix as Stranger Things is dominating the Nielsen rankings with record-breaking numbers.
You can catch up on the series now before season 4 of Virgin River hits the platform on July 20.
