Virgin River Season 4 launched on Netflix final week, and it featured some enormous moments for followers of the romantic drama.
However, the most recent season nearly ended very in another way.
As you will recall, if you happen to maintain in control with our Virgin River opinions, Virgin River Season 4 Episode 12 concluded with Jack revealed to be the daddy of Mel’s little one … and Charmaine dropping the mom of all bombshells:
Jack shouldn’t be the daddy of her twins, successfully switching issues up in an enormous method for Virgin River Season 5.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, collection stars Alexandra Breckenridge and Martin Henderson mentioned these developments weren’t at all times canon.
“At the beginning of the season, Charmaine’s babies were still Jack’s. This was the outline. Charmaine’s babies would always be Jack’s and Mel’s baby was going to be Mark’s and then really close to the end, it completely changed,” Breckenridge revealed to the outlet.
“The writers came back and they were like, ‘So Charmaine’s babies are not Jack’s and Mel’s baby is Jack’s,’ and I was like, ‘Oh my god, thank you!'”
“When we talked about the beginning of the season before we started season 4, I really I was like, ‘Ugh, it feels heartbreaking to me if Mel is pregnant with Mark’s baby. It just feels like a letdown,” she added.
Breckenridge mentioned she is “really glad that they decided to go in the other direction.”
Henderson felt the identical.
“I felt that at this juncture, season 4, we’re many seasons in. We’ve watched these guys with their mutual troubled pasts come together and there’s this promise of love and their connection and their attraction is undeniable. So the potential can only be for good,” Henderson mentioned.
“But like all the dramas, we didn’t have to watch them navigate through all of the conflict and where they’re incompatible and they try to figure that out, which keeps you compelled,” the star shared with the outlet.
“I think it’s a perfect time to give the audience something to really celebrate.”
“Obviously there’s people who are going to want the wedding and I don’t know if that’s going to happen but there’s certain things that you want to give the audience.”
Virgin River has been an enormous hit for Netflix since its launch, amassing a world fanbase, however I believe we will all agree that a number of the developments of late have been lower than thrilling.
It was a great choice to modify this ending as much as actually put the characters on a unique canvas for Virgin River Season 5.
Netflix picked up Season 5 similtaneously Season 4, one thing that not often occurs on Netflix.
Production on Virgin River Season 5 is properly underway, and now we have a lot to sit up for with these characters.
Understandably, one of many larger questions will encompass who Charmaine’s child daddy is.
Is it attainable that one of many different characters will probably be revealed to have had a secret relationship along with her?
For such a small city, there’s at all times numerous drama.
Maybe that is what makes it so endearing.
