Virgin River star Alexandra Breckenridge has revealed that she will be joining forces with her co-star Martin Henderson for a live autograph signing on October 14 – and fans are over the moon. 

Viewers of the popular Netflix show have been waiting a while for the pair to reunite for a signing. The last one took place back in February and saw the actors tune in from separate locations, rather than being in the same room.

The signing comes just over a month before part two of Virgin River season five lands on Netflix. The final two episodes of the season, which are holiday-themed, will be released just in time for the festive season on November 30.
