Netflix Sets Premiere Date for Season 5 of 'Virgin River'

Netflix has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming fifth season of its original drama series Virgin River.

10 episodes of the fifth season will be available on Thursday, September 7. Meanwhile, the final two episodes of the season will be released on Thursday, November 30 as holiday specials.

The new season features surprising new relationships, a shocking break-up, a difficult court trial, a heartbreaking goodbye, and a wildfire that threatens the town, bringing some people of Virgin River together while tearing others apart. Issues of motherhood push Mel to make a big decision about her future at the clinic while her pregnancy unexpectedly sparks an emotional connection to her past. To further prove himself to Mel, Jack squares off with some long-overdue confrontations - with his own demons, and of course, Charmaine. And as Doc and Hope's respective impairments throw their identities into question, the doctor and the mayor must find solace in their community, in their young new family, and in each other.

The drama stars Alexandra Breckenridge, Martin Henderson, Tim Matheson, Annette O'Toole, Colin Lawrence, Benjamin Hollingsworth, Zibby Allen, Sarah Dugdale, Marco Grazzini, Mark Ghanimé, Kai Bradbury and Kandyse McClure.

Guest stars include Lauren Hammersley, Teryl Rothery, Nicola Cavendish, Gwynyth Walsh, Christina Jastrzembska, Stacey Farber, Jenny Cooper, Lucia Walters, Steve Bacic, Libby Osler, Keith MacKechnie, Barbara Pollard, Trevor Lerner, Ellie Harvie, Darcy Laurie, Sandy Robson, Lexa Doig, Chase Petriw, Emma Oliver, Michelle Addison, Miranda Edwards and Gabrielle Jacinto.

Sue Tenney developed the drama based on the novels by Robyn Carr. Tenney and Carr executive produce with Patrick Sean Smith, Amy Palmer Robertson, Roma Roth and Christopher E. Perry.

The drama has already been renewed for a sixth season by Netflix.
