We may still be awaiting news on whether or not Virgin River is going to be renewed for the third season on Netflix, but this doesn’t mean fans aren’t curious about what the future holds following the twists in the Season 2 finale, particularly the massive cliffhanger.

Although the series is based on author Robyn Carr‘s novels of the same name, several changes have already taken place when it comes to the characters and plots, so it makes sense for fans to ask what will happen next.

Now the Virgin River showrunner has revealed how they intend to tackle upcoming seasons.

Fans are hopeful Virgin River will be renewed for season 3 on Netflix.

Sue Tenney recently addressed the reason the series took so long, relative to the novels, for the leading characters, Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) and Jack (Martin Henderson) to get intimate.

Now she’s letting us know how she and her crew are planning the future seasons. Tenney said to TV Line:

Ultimately, the way I look at the show is that we’re going to get as many seasons as we get. And when we get to that last season, we want them to be where [book author Robyn Carr] has them. Everything we do that isn’t directly from the book we do in [the spirit of] Robyn’s books.

If you’ve completed Virgin River season 2, you’ll know the characters are going through a lot in the final moments of the season.

Preacher (Colin Lawrence) has big choices to make about his life, Brady (Ben Hollingsworth) is in a very difficult situation, Doc Mullins (Tim Matheson) carries news for Hope (Annette O’Toole) that she most likely won’t like and Mel and Jack are… well, let’s just say they’re in a pretty rough spot.

But it seems the aim for Sue Tenney and her writing team is to make sure whatever alterations they make in the show, the characters eventually end up in the same boat as they do in the books. Basically different roads leading to the same destination!

If you’ve read some of the Virgin River novels, altering a lot of stuff storyline and character-wise may seem like a convoluted way to hit the target, but you certainly can’t argue with the outcomes.

Seasons 1 and 2 have attracted the interest of both those who enjoy Carr’s novels and others who aren’t familiar with any of them.

Almost every episode ends on some sort of a cliffhanger as well. And if you’re in love with a little town romance with a bit of naughtiness and even more suspense, the show should be your precise cup of tea.

Fortunately for the Virgin River viewers, it looks like there’s strong planning in place for them to take up the Season 2 storylines and still deliver us the story arcs we crave for Mel, Jack, and all the other characters.

In the meantime, Netflix is likely to announce the renewal of Virgin River for season 3 pretty soon.
