Plot and Storyline
Virgin River Season 3 along with the rest of the seasons are based on the novels written by Robyn Carr. Carr has written 21 Virgin River novels, with the latest published in October 2020. Show-runner Sue Tenney has indicated she intends to remain true to the soul of the original novels, even if some plot elements may differ between the show and the novels.
“That which we do that is not directly from the publication we all do in [the soul of] Robyn’s novels,” Tenney said.
Tenney has credited Netflix as a “fantastic partner” in storytelling, “They were not trying to rush up, or to rush us to where we were going. They let’s tell the story, and as a storyteller, that is like catnip.”
This approach is one of the reasons Mel and Jack waited to have sex before the show’s second season. “If you have read the books, you know that sex is a big part,” Tenney says. “However, I simply didn’t feel the first time was about that. I needed to hold off”
