An exciting update was given on Virgin River Season 6's filming schedule and possible release date.

The successful Netflix romantic drama was renewed for the sixth season in May 2023, four months before the Season 5 launch.

Virgin River was originally set to film Season 6 over Summer 2023, but the writers' and actors' strikes derailed those plans.

According to What's On Netflix, Virgin River Season 6 will be filming from February 2 to May 17, 2024. 

The report also notes that filming will remain exclusively based in British Columbia, Canada, utilizing various locations across the province such as Langley, Burnaby, Maple Ridge, Squamish, New Westminster, and Vancouver. 

Given these precise dates and locations, fans can now focus on speculating when Season 6 will be released on streaming.

When Will Virgin River Season 6 Premiere?

This exciting production update for Virgin River Season 6 gives fans a better idea of when it will be released on Netflix.

During the Hollywood strikes, Virgin River screenwriter Richard Keith stated that there likely wouldn't be "any Virgin River on Netflix until 2025:"

"Anybody else excited for the holiday episodes of 'Virgin River' to drop on November 30th!? All I want for Christmas is [for] my two… unions to get a fair deal from the AMPTP. If they don’t hurry up there won’t be any 'Virgin River' on Netflix until 2025…"

A few months later, this pessimistic prediction appears to be the most likely scenario for Season 6.

Looking at previous timetables, filming for Season 4 ended on December 7, 2021 and premiered on July 20, 2022. Filming for Season 5 ended on November 21, 2022 and premiered on September 7, 2023.

This gives a rough seven-month window between the conclusion of filming and Netflix premiering a new season of Virgin River.

Given the reported May 17 completion date for Season 6, it will most likely begin streaming in January 2025.

If the process is sped along, which it may considering all the time lost during the strike, there's a chance Netflix will launch Season 6 in late 2024.

All five seasons of Virgin River are now streaming on Netflix.
