Courtesy Of Netflix © 2022"Virgin River" has finally set a premiere date for season four. On Wednesday, Netflix confirmed that the upcoming season will arrive on July 20 with 12 episodes to continue the show's next chapter. Season three brought all the big-time, small-town drama and romance we've come to expect from the Netflix series. So thankfully, we'll be heading back to the quaint town soon enough to pick up after that emotional season finale. Considering "Virgin River"'s success, Netflix renewed the series, which is based on Robyn Carr's book series of the same name, for seasons four and five in September, TV Line reported. So there's already more drama guaranteed for at least one more season after the show's summer premiere. "Virgin River"'s season four's logline promises more romance, love connections, and a new handsome face in town. However, there's one major question we still have that ties to one of the show's longtime series regulars: Annette O'Toole, who plays Hope. Fair warning: spoilers afoot from here on out! 48043274 Hope isn't physically present in "Virgin River" throughout the third season; she spends most of it out of town, caring for her sick and elderly aunt, and only appearing via video and phone calls. That particular plot point was necessitated by filming complications during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to showrunner Sue Tenney. "That was a pandemic pivot," Tenny told Entertainment Weekly. "We've worked very hard to make sure she was still very much in the show. If we have a fourth season, everyone is now vaccinated and the pandemic is not what it was. So, I would hope that we would have Annette back." Tenney also noted that a planned storyline — Doc and Hope's vow renewal — was held back from the season. "When we get to that point, which is a re-commitment ceremony, we definitely are going to want to see that," she added. There are a lot of loose ends to tie up when "Virgin River" returns. By the end of season three, we've got a possible frame-up, an impending kidnapping, an ongoing medical crisis, a potentially fatal car crash, a mysterious new arrival, and a shocking pregnancy, leaving many big questions unanswered.
