Season five of the popular drama wrapped back in November and is set to be released in July, according to Martin. 

Addressing followers directly in a video shared on Cameo, he said: "Virgin River season five coming out, I think, probably in July. So not long now, a few months.

"Another instalment of hot, steamy gossip and intrigue on the river," he added.

Not only did Martin seemingly confirm the upcoming season's release date, but Alexandra also said a July release was likely

"The fifth season that'll come out probably, I don't know, maybe July again? I'm not sure, nobody's really updated me!" she said. 

The new series will pick up from where season four left off and is likely to focus on Jack and Mel's upcoming wedding plans following their engagement. The series will also deal with an "important" and "timely" issue that brings the community together in "a big way", according to Hope McCrea actress Annette O'Toole.
