Citing a recent interview with Robyn Carr ⁠— the author of the 20-volume book series exploring Melissa's extraordinary experiences in the tightly-knit community ⁠— The Cinemaholic hints that Season 2 might be the first of many more to come.  

"[The show could] go on for years. We could grow old together," explained the writer of the ever-popular literary series. 

As journalist Kanu Priya adds, there are other signs indicating that Season 2 will start filming soon.

A leaked DGC production schedule reveals that the shooting of the next episodes is already taking place. The works are expected to wrap up on December 17, which means that fans will be able to get their hands on the next round of episodes as early as June 2020.

While Cinemaholic projects a summer release date, other outlets predict fans will have to wait a bit longer. Deadline's Josh Sorokach argues that Netflix might hold back the release date, stating that Season 2 might become available around December 2020. 

Under any circumstance: there will be a Season 2, which is a good start. 

Season 2 will include twists and turns not featured in Virgin River books. 

The New York Times Bestseller author was surprised to discover just how many readers became instantly attached to the incredible story. Originally intended as a romantic drama exploring the ever-changing life of a small town, the books turned out to be an instant hit with thousands of readers.

"People don’t write to me and say, 'Oh, I love Jack.' Well, they do. They write to me all the time and say, 'Send Jack.' But the other thing they do is they write to me and say, 'My husband died last year and your books got me through a bad time.' Or they say, 'My baby died and I know exactly how she felt,'" Robyn told Entertainment Weekly. "They have real issues, real emotions, real drama, and they really have to deal with it in a safe place. And a book is a real safe place." 

Asked about her involvement in the shooting of the new Netflix romantic drama, the writer maintained a more secretive approach. As she told the outlet, she was eager to find out about the additional narrative twists and character traits the writers of the show envisioned. 

As to the casting choices? "Here’s the thing, I’m 67 [...] they’re all Tom Selleck to me," Robyn jokingly added.
