Without getting specific, I will say that that continues to be a focus. Some of our early casting conversations for season 5, I think it’s fair to say that that is going to continue to be a focus and something the audience will get to experience more in season 5. It’s definitely a priority, and I think you will see, as we expand the Virgin River community, that there will be more diversity and inclusion.

There is not much information about the storyline of Virgin River season 5. Here are some of the potential storylines the series will follow.
Mel and Jack Getting Married and Building a Family
The season's most likely storyline will follow is about Mel’s journey as a mother, as she may give birth in season 5. Hopefully, we may also see Jack and Mel settle down and get married, with many fans hoping to see the happy ending that Jack and Mel deserve.
Charmaine and the Twins
We may also be seeing Jack confront his feelings and confusion caused by his attachment and apparent connection to Mel’s child. The season may also finally show how Jack reacts to Charmaine's revelation that the twins are not his.
We may also see Preacher live a fuller life in season 5, especially after his encounter daw with Vince by the end of season 4.
Will Cameron Stay?
Cameron came to Virgin River to help out in the clinic, but after his awkward exchange with Mel, we were expecting Cameron to say goodbye. We may see him in season 5 still, though, because reports show him attending the table read for season 5.
Lizzie, Denny, and Ricky
Lizzie and Denny have a budding relationship that may just be cut short after Denny tells Lizzie of his disease. Will they continue dating in the next season?
We may hopefully see Ricky return from basic training in season 5.
So Much to Look Forward To

I think this season has started out well and we’re getting into a few episodes soon that are pretty heavy. They’re really intense and I think that they’re some of the best episodes we’ve ever done. I never say that either! I think that there’s a high sense of drama that starts to come up this season that it’s going to leave people on the edge of their seats. At least, I hope. I’m excited to get into that.
