Comfort Shows Like ‘Virgin River’ to Stream on Netflix

It has been months since Netflix dropped season 3 of the heartwarming drama, Virgin River. Fans expected another season to drop during the winters because the makers usually schedule the release of new seasons during the cold months. But it seems the makers have intentionally dropped the new season in July to throw off the viewers. Well, it was a surprise, but it also means a longer wait for season 4. 

The cheerful little drama with the perfect folk-pop soundtrack follows Mel after she relocates to a small town in Northern California. There she finds love in Jack and a whole lot of trouble in Doc Mullins.
