Virgin River season five landed earlier this month and we're already in need of more episodes. Fortunately, rather than waiting another two years for more of our favourite small-town residents, the Netflix drama is releasing two very special episodes at the end of November to mark the holiday season.

Following the dramatic final episode of season five – and you can read our explainer here – we have plenty of questions that need answering.

While we don't yet know whether we'll get all of our answers in the new episodes, we're hoping to get some plot points ironed out.

Here are seven questions we need an answer to in Virgin River Part Two…

Will Mel have another baby?

Fans were devastated when Mel lost her baby midway during season five. Jack initially was keen to try again but Mel was – understandably – reluctant to go through the trauma again. However, at the end of season five, the on-screen couple, played by Alexandra Breckenridge and Martin Henderson, decided they were going to buy land and build their own home and "fill it with kids."

This makes us think that they will endeavour to start a family one way or another, but it's likely we won't see this happen until season six.

Who is Mel's dad?

The final episode of season five saw Mel find out from her sister that their mother might have been having an affair with a man who lived in Virgin River. This put Mel on a mission to find out about her real father – but who will it be?

The trailer for part two even sees Mel say, "I think we found my dad." Here's hoping that they don't leave us on a cliffhanger.

Are Brie and Brady back together?

The trailer certainly had us thinking this could be a possibility! They were spotted gazing adoringly at each other while under some mistletoe. Although Brie did enjoy a brief romance with Mike, we can't help but think she'll follow her heart and stay with Brady. We can't wait to find out.

Are Cameron and Muriel the real deal?

After getting Doc's blessing, Muriel and Cameron went on their very first official date at the funfair in the final episode. But will they go the distance? Or will work come between them? They seem pretty smitten, so we can see good things in their future.

We know that the couple had plans to travel, and Denny even wanted to go back to college to finish studying. As one fan wrote on X: "I bet Mel and Jack will adopt Lizzie and Denny's baby." We're intrigued by that theory!

What will happen to Preacher?

Preacher looked seriously concerned when his new girlfriend, Kaia, received a phone call from her boss being told that authorities had found a body in the woods – which happens to close to where he and Paige buried the body of Paige's abusive husband, Wes, after he fell down the stairs.

If the body turns out to be Wes, Preacher could find himself in a lot of trouble. And with Paige now out of the picture after deciding to leave Virgin River – will he take the fall?

Will Doc's eyesight be cured?

Doc told Hope that he was going ahead with the clinical trials in order to try and cure his eyesight condition. But will it work? We know that the risks involved and possible side effects can lead to complete sight loss, which makes us seriously worried about our favourite medic. But will the clinical trials work? We can only hope!
