‘Virgin River’ is officially returning for Season 5



Warning: This post contains spoilers for Season Four of “Virgin River.”

We’ll say this about “Virgin River:” The show knows how to leave us hanging. Luckily, Season Five is on its way. Netflix renewed the popular California-set, Canada-filmed show in September 2021, per Deadline.

Season Four, which premiered on Netflix on July 20, wrapped up many loose strings from Season Three: Namely, who shot Jack and whose baby Mel is having.

Meanwhile, the finale of Season Four opened up a whole new set of plot lines, including yet another paternity question: Charmaine (Lauren Hammersley) revealed that Jack is not the father of her twins. But who is?

The finale also introduced a new antagonist in the form of Melissa Montgomery, Calvin’s successor as the crime boss of Virgin River (every small town needs one).

Here’s what we know about the show’s fifth season. We’ll be updating this as more details about “Virgin River” Season Five emerge.

When will Season 5 of ‘Virgin River’ come out?

Perhaps the release date of Season Five is the ultimate cliffhanger. Season Four premiered exactly a year after Season Three.

But perhaps the wait won’t be as long: Whereas Season Three was renewed on its own in 2020, Seasons Four and Five were renewed in tandem in Sept. 2021.

The cast will return. Here’s what their characters are up to

“Virgin River” has had the same core cast members from the start. Alexandra Breckinridge and Martin Henderson play the central couple, Mel Monroe and Jack Sheridan.

While Jack and Mel are the center of audience’s universes, there are other inhabitants of Virgin River. Based on a photo from a virtual cast table read, here’s who we can expect to return.

  • Colin Lawrence as Preacher, Jack’s Marine buddy and colleague at his bar.
  • Lexa Doig as Paige, a single mom who Preacher helps out in a major way.
  • Lauren Hammersley as Charmaine, who is pregnant with twins – and they’re not Jack’s.
  • Patrick Sabongui as Todd, Charmaine’s husband whom she married after three weeks. In the finale, Charmaine indicates that she and Todd have split.
  • Benjamin Hollingsworth as Brady, who — after being sent to prison — is officially found innocent for Jack’s attempted murder in Season Four.
  • Zibby Allen as Brie, Jack’s sister and Brady’s maybe girlfriend.
  • Tim Matheson as Doc, Virgin River’s doctor who is trying, really trying, to retire.
  • Annette O’Toole as Hope, Doc’s wife who is recovering from a traumatic brain injury.
  • Mark Ghanimé as Cameron, who arrives to Virgin River to take over Doc’s practice, but wants to leave because of his strong feelings that his colleague Mel is not with the right guy (and thinks that he is).
  • Teryl Rothery as Muriel, Hope and Doc’s friend.
  • Stacey Farber as Tara, the daughter of Lilly, Muriel’s friend who died in Season Three.
  • Kai Bradbury as Denny, who showed up in Season Three saying he’s Doc’s grandson. In the Season Four finale, Denny reveals he has Huntington’s Disease, a fatal genetic disorder, per the Huntington’s Disease Society of America.
  • Grayson Maxwell Gurnsey as Ricky, who ends Season Four by heading off to the Marines.
  • Sarah Dugdale as Lizzie, a Virgin River transplant exploring her romantic feelings for Denny.
  • Daniel Gillies as Mark Monroe, Mel’s husband who died before the show started and appears in flashbacks.

Where will Season 5 be filmed?

The fictional town Virgin River is supposed to be in California, but the show is actually filmed in Canada — specifically, the Vancouver region.

Jack Harlow reveals the dream collaboration he’s been manifesting



Jack Harlow is dreaming all the way to the football field.

In between hits like “Industry Baby” and “First Class” on the TODAY plaza stage for our Citi Concert Series, rapper Jack Harlow revealed his biggest career goal.

“There’s a lot of things I haven’t done,” Harlow said after TODAY’s Craig Melvin asked Harlow what he hasn’t done yet that he still wants to do. “One day, I dream of doing the Super Bowl halftime show.”

The crowd roared with applause, and Craig said the rapper “just spoke it into existence.”

In another interview on the 3rd Hour of TODAY, the musician from Louisville, Kentucky also spilled his dream collaborator.

Craig ran down the list of artists Harlow has already worked with like Drake, Lil Nas X and Justin Timberlake, and asked who he would love to collaborate with who hasn’t gotten to next.

“Andre 3000,” Harlow replied, speaking of the fellow rapper from the South. “That’s a big one I’ve been manifesting. A lot of the collaborations you just named, are ones that in interviews, over the years, I hadn’t done yet.”

“Pharrell, Drake, all that, and then they would happen,” he continued. “So I’m just gonna keep saying Andre 3000 with faith that it will happen.”

“Andre 3000 with you at the Super Bowl,” Craig manifested. “That’s the show.”

“That would be everything I could ever want,” Harlow said.

Harlow attended Super Bowl LVI in February at Sofi Stadium, and while The Weeknd performed during the game’s halftime show, Harlow performed at a halftime show of his own during Shaquille O’Neal’s pre-game SHAQ Bowl livestream event.

Harlow is headed to the MTV Music Video Awards later this month, where he is up for seven awards—leading the highest number of nominations along with Kendrick Lamar and Lil Nas X.

Natalia Dyer Was Confronted By Megan Thee Stallion For Choosing “Boring” Jonathan Over Steve In “Stranger Things”



And she made sure to tell that to Natalia Dyer when she stopped by the Tonight Show on Thursday, where Meg was guest-hosting with Jimmy Fallon.

“Let’s talk about it, though,” Meg told her. “Because, OK, so boom. At first, you liked Steve. You was into Steve. And then you just kinda like, dumped him, no caution, he didn’t know what was happening.”

“Poor Steve,” she continued before listing off more unfortunate moments he’s experienced on the show. “Y’all keep throwing the kids on him to babysit — he keeps saving y’all life. All he do is save y’all life. He was beating everybody up! And you like, ‘Aw man, I’m going to Jonathan, sorry.'”

“I do feel bad,” Natalia replied. “Honestly, I think the way that Jonathan and Nancy happened, I was like — she doesn’t always make the most morally right decisions all the time, but that’s human, you know?”

As far as the next season is concerned, Natalia seemed unsure of where it would go. But she personally thinks that Nancy might need a step back from dating to have “a little me time after all of it.”

“Like, they’re still in high school,” she said. “So much to think about,” Meg agreed. “Jonathan is boring. She’s so smart. She’s so pretty. She’s got things to do!”

Jon Batiste leaving ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’



Academy- and Grammy Award-winning artist Jon Batiste is leaving “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” after seven seasons, Colbert announced Thursday night on the show. He’s exiting to “pursue personal and professional interests.” Louis Cato, who has served as interim bandleader this summer, will take over on a permanent basis — and Colbert’s band, which previously had been called “Stay Human” under Batiste’s direction, will be renamed “The Late Show Band.”

Cato will take over permanently when the show returns for its eighth season on Tuesday, Sept. 6.

“Louis has done a great job this summer, and he is very humble, so he won’t say this. But I will. He’s a musical genius,” Colbert said. “He can play basically every instrument over there. Give him an afternoon, he’ll learn how to play Mozart on a shoehorn.”

Cato has been with “The Late Show” since its relaunch under Colbert. The revised band will be include Joe Saylor, who has performed alongside Louis since the show’s inception, and longtime house band members Louis Fouché, Jon Lampley, Endea Owens and Nêgah Santos.

“It has been one of the great honors of my life to work on this show, alongside some of the most talented musicians and creatives I know,” said Cato. “Watching and learning from both Jon and Stephen for these past seven years, I’m genuinely excited to continue the tradition of excellence they’ve established.”

Batiste won five Grammys earlier this year, out of a whopping 11 nominations, with big wins including album of the year. That came after Batiste won an Oscar in 2021 for original score as part of the trio of composers behind Disney-Pixar’s “Soul.”

“We’ve been so lucky to have a front row seat to Jon’s incredible talent for the past seven years,” Colbert said of Batiste. “And will we miss him here? ‘Yeaaa!’ But we’re happy for you, Jon, and I can’t wait to have you back on as guest with your next hit record.”

Cato, a Grammy-nominated multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter, has worked with artists including Beyonce, Mariah Carey, John Legend, Talib Kweli, Snarky Puppy, David Sanborn, George Duke, Bobby McFerrin, Marcus Miller, John Scofield and A Tribe Called Quest. Cato released his first solo record, “Starting Now,” in 2016, and he is in post-production on his newest album, “Reflections,” due out later this year. He is repped by manager and creative producer Sam Goldberg and Jake Levy at Levy Law PLLC.
