THIS ROMANTIC DRAMA is based on the book series by Robyn Carr.

A nurse from Los Angeles, Mel Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge from This Is Us), moves to the titular remote town to get away from her old life.

Surrounded by forests, wilderness and rushing rivers, Virgin River is just the place to start over. There she meets some interesting characters, including Jack Sheridan (The Ring’s Martin Henderson), a former soldier who now owns the town bar; the grumpy doctor (Tim Matheson) who’s also Mel’s boss; and the mayor (Annette O’Toole), who sticks her nose into everyone’s business.
