Keep reading for more on Virgin River Season Three.

But first, a quick catch-up for anyone who's never seen the show.

It follows the story of Melinda "Mel" Monroe, a midwife and nurse practitioner, who takes a job in the remote Northern California town of Virgin River.

There, she meets all sorts of characters, including the handsome bar owner Jack.

It's basically a feel-good story that will give you *all* the Hallmark vibes.

The series is based on the popular novels by author Robyn Carr.

In May 2020, she released her first new Virgin River book in eight years, called Return to Virgin River.

When Season Two of the show left off, it did so with a major cliffhanger.

**Spoiler alert warning**. The cliffhanger leads of with fans wondering what will happen to Jack.

He had been found on the floor of his bar by Mel. He was slowly bleeding from a gunshot wound.

So far, fans have five potential suspects: Brady, Calvin, Charmaine, Vince, and Jamie.

Since Martin Henderson who plays Jack is back for Season Three, there's a very good chance that he makes it out alive.

What condition he's in, however, is another story.

Beyond that, fans can expect to see a continuation of other story arcs, such as the Preacher's plans to leave Virgin River.

He has trouble leaving since Paige's son, Christopher, relies on him.

Most of all, though, fans are excited to see what happens with Mel and Jack's relationship.

This is especially because he's about to become a father with Charmaine. Drama! Speaking of couples, we'll see Hope and Doc and Lizzie and Ricky.

Some of the details from Season Three, we heard directly from the cast.

Daniel Gillies, for instance, who plays Mark (Mel's dead husband) spoke to ET Canada about what's upcoming.

This includes the fact that he will appear in more flashbacks and this will give more backstory on his and Mel's relationship.

Prepare for some major twists and turns.

Benjamin Hollingsworth, who plays Brady, recently gave fans a teaser of this.

“I’m wearing a safety helmet to protect myself from all the bombshell plot twists season 3 has," he replied on an Instagram post. "Hope y’all ready for it.”

Finally, we have some new faces coming to Season Three.

It's been confirmed that Jasmine Vega, best known from Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, will play Stella.

Zibby Allen from The Flash will appear in all 10 episodes as Jack's lawyer sister, Brie. Stacey Farber (Degrassi: The Next Generation) will play Lilly’s daughter, Tara Anderson.

Kai Bradbury, who's known for *Warigami* and *The Terror and Motherland: Fort Salem*, will play Denny.

His character will visit Virgin River alongside the other new character, Tara.

It'll be interesting to see how these new characters shake up the dynamic on the show.

Of course, you will see many familiar faces.

In addition to Martin Henderson and Alexandra Breckenridge who play Jack and Mel, respectively, we also have Jenny Cooper, Grayson Maxwell Gurnsey, Tim Matheson, Benjamin Hollingsworth, and Colin Lawrence.
