Season 6 of Virgin River Has Been Delayed Due to WGA/SAG-AFTRA Strikes!
Season 6 of Netflix’s Virgin River has been postponed owing to the ongoing WGA/SAG-AFTRA strikes. Season 6 was supposed to begin production in July 2023 in Vancouver, British Columbia, but with the start of the strikes, the writers and at least part of the performers were on strike.

Created by Sue Tenney, the Netflix series debuted in December 2019 and has since amassed a sizable fan base. The series was renewed for 12-episode fourth and fifth seasons in September 2021. On July 20, 2022, the fourth season premiered. A week later, it was revealed that Patrick Sean Smith had taken over as showrunner from Tenney. Later, he said to TVLine,
Sue had moved on to other projects, and I’d worked with Netflix on Dolly Parton’s ‘Heartstrings’ so we had a pre-existing relationship. I was already a fan, and I was super excited when they came to me with the possibility. The cast cares so much about the show and the fans, and they want to put on the best show possible. I think they’ve done that for the past four seasons, so it just makes it easier for me to pick up the ball and keep running into Season 5 and beyond.
Virgin River was renewed for a sixth season in March 2023, ahead of the season 5 premiere in the autumn of that year. The potential of a season 6 production delay initially surfaced in June 2023. Martin Henderson, who plays Jack Sheridan, hinted on social media in July 2023 that season 6 production could begin shortly.
However, given the ongoing impasse in negotiations between the WGA/SAG-AFTRA and AMPTP, that seems improbable. The new showrunner is active on social media and has publicly stated his support for the strikes.
Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos told investors in July 2023 that the strikes were the last thing he wanted and that he hoped they would be resolved by then. He stated earlier this year that Netflix has enough content to last a long time despite the writers’ strike, but it appears that things have changed when actors also went on strike. He added,
We’re super committed to getting to an agreement as soon as possible. One that’s equitable and one that enables the industry and everybody in it to move forward into the future.
Every year since its debut, a new season of Virgin River has been released. If the strike persists, it is possible that this will not happen in 2024. More information on this subject will be released in the following months.
