Only the beginning! After a dramatic suspense during season 2 of Virgin river, the program returns to answer old questions and perhaps create new ones.
The stars of the show Alexandra breckenridge (Mel Monroe) and Martin Henderson (Jack Sheridan), dived into what fans can expect from the next story.
“We jumped ahead to get into the meat and potatoes of all these other characters,” Henderson revealed. in an interview with Entertainment tonight in December 2020. “And what I think is great is that this season opens up all the other stories from the other relationships and new relationships are formed. Jack and Mel are still there dealing with love and unrequited love, and their obstacles, but you also see a lot of these other characters and you jump ahead where they are all in their own private quandaries. “
Breckenridge added: “It becomes more [an] set, I think. “
The show, based on Robyn Carr’s book series of the same name, will return with 10 episodes on July 9. The series follows Breckenridge’s character Mel who moves to Virgin River in Northern California and the connections he forms with those in the small town. .
However, one story line that will not make it into the new season is the coronavirus pandemic.
“Not many people are going to want to watch a show about COVID that just went through that, having COVID fatigue,” Breckenridge said. Y. “On Virgin river, you want to escape your world and that’s the beauty of the show [and] this beautiful little town. “
While that aspect of reality won’t find its way into the romance drama, Henderson revealed how COVID-19 played a role in Virgin riverthe success of the transmission.
“It was unusual to get a call about the third season of the show. I guess based on the performance from season 1, it definitely indicated that people were flocking to the show and frankly, we were also lucky that the show launched right before COVID, then the closures, so I think the show found an audience, ”he explained at the time.
For him Grey’s Anatomy alum, the world of “fantasy” that Virgin river has managed to create was a perfect escape for people during the pandemic.
“I think it has struck a chord, particularly with the fact that there is so much heaviness in the world that the show tends to offer comfort in a way that people seem to really appreciate and that it feels really good that we can provide a form of entertainment that nourish and heal at a time when there is so much division and uncertainty, ”added the New Zealand native.
The show, which also stars Tim matheson (Doc Mullins), Annette O’Toole (who plays Hope McCrea), Lauren Hammersley (Charmaine Roberts), Benjamin Hollingsworth (Dan Brady) and Colin lawrence (Preacher) ended its season 2 finale with Jack getting shot in his bar.
Weather the season 3 trailer for Virgin river mocks that Jack succeeds in it, the question still remains of who shot him.
“The show sets it up so you think maybe it was Jimmy. Some people think maybe it was Brady. ”Breckenridge He said Y in November 2020.
Meanwhile, Henderson has his own conjecture as to who might have wanted to shoot Jack.
It’s definitely Charmaine. I mean, do the math. I’m convinced, ”he joked at the time.
