It appears we’re going to have to wait at least another month before returning to the picturesque town of Virgin River as Virgin River season 3 will not be coming to Netflix in May 2021.
On April 21, Netflix revealed the complete list of Netflix shows and movies set to release during the month of May. While the list includes several returning favorites such as Lucifer, The Kominsky Method, Selena: The Series, and Who Killed Sarah?, Virgin River season 3 was notably absent from the May calendar meaning fans will have to continue to wait for answers to their many burning questions.
While disappointing, we can’t say we’re surprised not to see Virgin River on the May 2021 release calendar. Although we’d have loved to have seen the season get a surprise release, Netflix tends to heavily promote new seasons of their biggest shows and leading up to the May schedule release there had been no new information about season 3 such as a teaser trailer or any form of new promo images.
The good news is that we likely won’t have to wait too much longer for the next season’s arrival.
When is Virgin River season 3 coming out?
Although Netflix has not announced an official release date for Virgin River season 3, we anticipate the new season will be coming in 2021. The biggest question is when exactly the new season might release.
According to a recent report from What’s On Netflix, filming on season 3 is said to have taken place sometime between August and December of 2020. With production complete, the show is rumored to be in post-production with Netflix working hard to put the finishing touches on the season before its release.
Given we’re anticipating a busy final few months of the year, it’s possible Netflix might surprise viewers with a late Summer 2021 release for season 3. However, it seems more likely that we’ll once again be looking at a late November or early December release as Netflix tends to like releasing new seasons shortly after the Thanksgiving holiday.Next: 50 best Netflix shows to watch right now
