Virgin River Season 4 Reportedly Getting Announced Soon - Production Date Appears Set
Netflix of the old days rarely canceled original shows, almost every original got a second chance to garner larger audiences but since 2018-19 the streaming service has moved in another direction. There are more original shows with a single season on Netflix than multiple renewals, and that is by design. Netflix earns money when they get new subscribers, so once a new show gets all the audience it can get, there is no reason to renew it if the viewership was moderate or low.
While in the case of Virgin River, the rise of viewership was steady resulting in the second season getting renewed within two weeks of premiere. Similar trend followed for season 3 renewal that came within three weeks of the sophomore season hitting Netflix.

Virgin River season 3 was renewed in late December 2020 and seven months later we are getting a finished show. With that timeline at work here also we will probably get Virgin River season 4 in February 2022. Imagine the fourth season releasing on the hit romantic series coming on Valentine's Day, now that would be perfect marketing and release date for the show.
