Alexandra Breckenridge took a trip down memory lane on Monday as she reunited with her former co-star Tyler Labine. Taking to Instagram, the Virgin River star, 41, shared a sweet selfie with the actor, after running into one another at the ScareFest Weekend meet and greet in Louisville, Kentucky.

Captioning the photo, Alexandra wrote: "Fun to run into old friends @tlabine". While the actress is best known for playing Mel Monroe in the hit Netflix series, Virgin River, her friendship with Tyler hails from their work on the TV movie, True Love, which aired in 2010. 

That same year, the actors worked together on a second project, co-starring in an episode of the American sitcom, Sons of Tucson. Alexandra was cast in a guest starring role, appearing as Tyler's character Ron Snuffkin's ex-girlfriend, Gina.

While fans will have loved seeing Alexandra and Tyler back in each other's orbit, there's another reunion that they're dying to know more about. 

While the TV star was due to join her Virgin River co-star Martin Henderson at a live autograph signing, the event was recently postponed.

Earlier this month, Alexandra issued an apology to fans, explaining that "very unforeseen circumstances" had led to the changes. "So, Streamily live, October 14. Unfortunately, we have to push the date due to very unforeseen circumstances and we're really, really sorry about this," she began. 

"It's not something Martin or myself, we didn't want to cancel. It's just we're completely unable to make it work at this time. We're going to try for the end of November or early December, hopefully. Both of us, honestly, we're really, really sorry about this."

While fans will have to wait a little while longer to see Alexandra and Martin at the signing, the second half of Virgin River's fifth season is just around the corner. Set to premiere on November 30, the final two episodes will put a festive spin on the series.

In an interview with Glamour, showrunner Patrick Sean Smith teased what to expect. "The holiday episodes are a little bit lighter, and we wanted to play a little more comedy after the weight of this season," he said. "It felt like, if we're going to give a holiday gift to the audience, let's make it a fun one. So part of what Mel and Jack are going through in those two episodes is like the scavenger hunt through Virgin River trying to track down the man who is her biological father. They're going from clue to clue." 

As for who that man might be, Patrick is remaining tight-lipped, although he can rule out one character. "Other than Jack's dad, everybody else is a suspect," he said.
