The long-awaited fourth season of one of the most successful romantic dramas of Netflix. A place to dream (Virgin River) tells the love story between Melinda Mel Monroe, played by Alexandra Breckenridge (This is Us) and Jack Sheridan (Martin Henderson). They both live in a dream place like Virgin River, in northern California, and each one carries their personal pain while love blossoms between them.
The series began in 2019 and conquered the world audience. Each season ended with a cliffhanger that invited to continue looking at the next one; that’s how at the end of the third installment Mel made a shocking announcement to Jack.
(Warning, spoilers below)
Mel is pregnant but, she told Jack, she did not know if he was the father of the baby or if it was the result of assisted fertilization with biological material from her late husband, Mark. In any case, this fourth season begins full of optimism because Mel has longed to be a mother for years and Jack supports her dream. However, the emotion that he feels does not prevent the question of paternity from continuing to torment him.
All these issues will be resolved from the July 20, when this fourth season premieres, which will bring 12 new episodes.

What he feels towards her doesn’t change.” affirmed the showrunner of the series, Sue Tenny, a Entertainment Weekly He added, “Circumstances happen around them, and the reactions and how the couple deals with it will be addressed in this season.”
But this new installment is not only going to focus on Mel and Jack but also on the rest of the plots that were put on hold in the third installment. One of the characters that returns steadily is that of Hope, played by Annette O’Toole, the wife of Doc, a character absent in the third season because the actress decided to isolate herself due to the pandemic.
