When asked if she would return to the show for more seasons if Netflix renew it, she said: “Sure. I love the show. The only thing I wish is that we could be consistent with when we do our shooting because that’s the other thing that it’s hard to work around it and make plans. There’s a play that I’ve been wanting to do for two years and we had it scheduled and then they changed our shooting schedule.”

She continued: “It’s hard with plays because theatres need to commit. You need to commit to them a couple of years in advance because they have to do publicity and they have to make plans and we have to get directors. So that’s been difficult.”

While the feel-good series has yet to be renewed for further seasons, Netflix’s drama head Jinny Howe has reassured fans that as long as there’s demand, she is hopeful for more of Virgin River

“I think we definitely see more longevity and growth with the show,” she told Deadline, adding: “It feels like based on what we’re seeing with season four and the anticipation for season five that there is a lot more storytelling to offer us.” 

She explained that as long as “the audience asks for it and shows up,” she, along with other senior staff members at the streaming platform, are “very hopeful” that the show will continue. “You can rest assured that there will be more Virgin River,” she said.
