Since the release of Season 2 in late November 2020, fans have awaiting the release of Virgin River Season 3. Although the second season was originally scheduled to premiere at the end of 2021, it could arrive on Netflix as early as July 2021. Netflix verified on Instagram a few hours after we published this that season 3 of Virgin River would premiere on July 9th, as mentioned below.
Season 3 of Virgin River concluded filming earlier this year, due to a super early renewal before season 2 even premiered on Netflix, as we detailed in our in-depth preview. It’s one of the rare shows to earn such early renewals, which reflects the service’s popularity.
Seasons 1 and 2 of Virgin River were both published toward the end of the year, with season 1 arriving in December 2019 and season 2 arriving in November 2020, although season 3 appears to be on the way.
The likely release date leak comes from Netflix France, which, like Netflix Portugal, is notorious for being first with release dates and news. Season 3 is set to premiere on Netflix on July 9th, 2021, according to the article. “Tu l’attendais?” read the caption. “Were you looking forward to that as well?” “As well as us.”
Of course, the Instagram photo was swiftly removed before it went viral, implying that Netflix France pressed the post button a little too hastily. If the show is set to return for a third season in July 2021, we should hear something soon, especially since a few fans have already seen the post and saved it like we did. Apart from us (of course), the easiest way to stay up to speed on Virgin River news is to follow the Virgin River Instagram page, which is quite active and frequently responds to all fan questions.
