Virgin River (Season Two)

The popular series ‘Virgin River’ returns this week for its second season. Whilst it doesn’t seem two minutes since the first season of the romantic drama series landed, fans would no doubt have me stand corrected as it first appeared this time last year! The series is adapted from the ‘Virgin River’ novels by author Robyn Carr. Melinda Monroe (Alexandra Breckinridge) is a nurse practitioner who moved to a remote town for a fresh start. The first season saw her meet and fall in love with the townspeople and the town itself not to mention love interest Jack Sheridan (Martin Henderson). Season one left viewers thirsty for more with a love triangle involving Jack’s relationship with character Charmaine and season two picks up where that very awkwardly left off.
