When we all saw the first episode of Virgin River, we expected a quiet little show about the peace of small towns. However, over the last 3 seasons, we have learned that the show is anything but that. This show has it all from rocky relationships to drama over custody and dramatic house fires to hurricanes. The latest in the line of questions that keep the fans of Virgin River awake as they wait for season 4 is- “who is the father of Mel’s child?” As Netflix has announced the release date, here’s a summary of the events and all the theories.
Who is the father of Mel’s child?
Jack and Mel have had a very rocky relationship right from the very beginning of Virgin River. But, right when Jack was sure he was ready to commit to Mel and even propose to her, Mel reveals that she is pregnant. And she isn’t sure if the child is Jack’s. Jack was the only one not impressed with the timing of this revelation. Viewers aren’t fans of it either, as the show ended with a massive cliffhanger back in the summer of 2021. Now that Netflix has announced the release date of Virgin River season 4, it offers little respite.
However, the question still stands. Who is the father of Mel’s child? The two possibilities are Jack, Mel’s current love interest, and the show’s protagonist, or Mark, Mel’s deceased husband. In an interview with US Weekly, showrunner Sue Tenney revealed that she plans on revealing this secret at the very end of season 4. She said that it is “something that we won’t answer until we get to the end of — if we get — a season 4”
Virgin River season 4 release date
Sue Tenney made this statement back in 2021 when she wasn’t sure Netflix was going to renew the show. We have come a long way from the same. The shooting of the show has begun and ended and we now have a confirmed release date!
Virgin River season 4 will appear on our screens on July 20, 2022. Until then, refresh your memory on the wholesome yet complex plotlines of the Netflix Original by streaming it. Or, find below a list of similar comfort shows.
