There are many questions about what will happen next in the story after the end of River’s suspense, but arguably the biggest question pertains to the future of the series itself: Will Virgin River return to Netflix for season 3?

Virgin River has yet to be renewed for a third season, so there is no guarantee one way or another about the future of the popular show.

There are a few variables to consider though, all of which suggest that Virgin River fans shouldn’t panic over the lack of renewal, and potential viewers shouldn’t stop watching for fear of early cancellation.

Not renewing Season 3 at this time doesn’t mean there isn’t renewal on the way. Virgin River season 2 also ended on a massive cliffhanger, which showrunner Sue Tenney was already promoting.

This year fans might be concerned that Virgin River is going the way of The Society and I Am Not Okay With This. Virgin River was renewed for season 2 just two weeks after the premiere of season 1.

Maybe a season 3 ad is just a week away. We can only wait and see. Meanwhile, you can find the two full seasons of Virgin River so far streamed on Netflix.
