Take Me To The River!

Watch Season 2, which starts streaming on November 27.

Netflix viewers quickly fell in love with Virgin River when it debuted on the streaming service in December 2019. Adapted from the Virgin River novels by author Robyn Carr, the romantic drama stars Alexandra Breckenridge as Melinda “Mel” Monroe, a midwife and nurse practitioner from Los Angeles who moves to a beautiful but remote Northern California town following a series of traumatic heartbreaks. Monroe soon discovers that small-town living isn’t quite as simple as she expected and that she must learn to heal herself before she can truly make Virgin River her home.

The mark of a good show is when it leaves fans wanting more — and season 1 of Virgin River did just that. The heartwarming, Hallmark-worthy drama was full of twists and turns right up until the very end.

In Season 2 The Reel World Management-produced show picks up some time after “Mel” left the fictional and titular town at the end of the first season. Jack Sheridan (Martin Henderson), had just declared his love for Mel after learning that he is expecting a child with his friend with benefits, Charmaine (Lauren Hammersley).

Joining the regular cast is Grayson Gurnsey (Game On), who previously recurred in the first season. Gurnsey continues to portray ‘Ricky’, a clean-cut, nice-looking teenager who works at the local tavern owned by ‘Jack’ (Henderson), living with his grandmother after the loss of his parents. Upon the arrival of this beautiful newcomer into town, he struggles between being a good kid and finding the confidence to make his own choices. Tim Matheson, Annette O’Toole, Jenny Cooper, Colin Lawrence, Benjamin Hollingsworth, Sarah Dugdale and Daniel Gillies also star.

Fans of Virgin River have been (not-so-) patiently waiting for almost a year to find out the release date for the second season of the romantic drama. Netflix announced in mid October that Season 2 of Virgin River will debut Friday, Nov. 27, right in time for the long Thanksgiving weekend. It will consist of 10 episodes.

Maggie [Allison Miller] jump starts her new life in Oxford, while Gary [James Roday Rodriguez] continues to navigate his new relationship with Darcy [Floriana Lima].”

Speaking in an interview with TVInsider, showrunner DJ Nash says of Eddie’s status coming into Season 3: “Katherine and Theo’s life will never be the same,” before hinting that the character is dead.”

We couldn’t imagine saying goodbye to David Giuntoli. Whether or not Eddie is actively part of their friends’ lives going forward is what our premiere’s all about.

BRIEF SYNOPSIS: The Arctic in 2040. The ice caps are drastically depleted, and despite ongoing global concern for climate change, countries have continued to ramp up fossil fuel extraction in the region. Oil has been flowing fast and cheap from the Arctic for the last twenty years—but it’s time to turn off the taps. Scientists have pinpointed the exact date by which all extraction must cease. After that, there’s no chance of saving the planet. The finding has inspired a controversial movement called Halt Day, which is regarded as either a sliver of hope or a recipe for disaster, depending who you ask.

The Mysterious Dean Hinchey…

Dean Hinchey has finished shooting a role on Episode #102 of Disney Plus’ upcoming series, ‘The Mysterious Benedict Society’.

The Mysterious Benedict Society, a new adventure drama series based on the best-selling YA novel by Trenton Lee Stewart.

Written by Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay is now being moved to Disney Plus after originally being developed for Hulu.

The show was originally ordered to series at Hulu last year, but is now slated to debut on fellow Disney-owned streamer Disney Plus in 2021.

“‘The Mysterious Benedict Society’ is a beautifully executed adaptation of the celebrated and beloved book series. It’s original, clever and fun for the whole family, which makes it the perfect fit for Disney+,” said Dana Walden, chairman of Entertainment for Walt Disney Television. “One of the great benefits to creators working with our company is that we have a platform that’s right for every series, and having seen the first few episodes of this show, there is no better home for it than Disney+.”  It is the tale of four gifted orphans who are recruited by an eccentric, benefactor (Hale) to go on a secret mission.

Tony Hale’s Mr. Benedict, a rumpled, affable eccentric genius, is the head of the Mysterious Benedict Society – a group of orphans he has recruited to save the world. While Mr. Benedict is reluctant to put the children in harm’s way, he feels there is no other choice. His Society is mysterious, and so is Mr. Benedict himself; he is the genial, cunning mastermind.

The Mysterious Benedict Society cast.

The eight-episode first season stars Tony Hale, Kristen Schaal, Ryan Hurst, MaameYaa Boafo, Gia Sandhu, Seth Carr, Emmy DeOliveira, Mystic Inscho, and Marta Timofeeva. Placed undercover at a boarding school known as The Institute, a group of orphans (Inscho, DeOliveira, Carr, Timofeeva) must foil a nefarious plot with global ramifications while creating a new sort of family along the way.

Darren Swimmer and Todd Slavkin serve as executive producers and showrunners. James Bobin will direct the pilot and will also executive produce. 20th Television serves as the studio.

The Mysterious Benedict Society, written by Stewart and illustrated by Carson Ellis, was published by Little, Brown and Company in 2007, launching a best-selling book franchise that also includes sequels The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey and The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner’s Dilemma as well as prequel The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict.
