Virgin River has come back, after what felt like an age since the last season. Virgin River season 5 premiered towards the strt of September, and one of the best Netflix series has reclaimed its place at the top of the service’s charts.

The current Netflix top ten has been rocked by Virgin River’s arrival. Per Comicbook, one of the best drama series popped right into the top spot after new episodes arrived on Thursday, September 7. Not unexpected, considering season 5 was a longer wait than previous seasons, so fans were ready to head back to that quiet mountain town.

Martin Henderson and Alexandra Breckenbridge return to lead the Virgin River cast, as Jack and Mel, the couple at the centre of the show. They’re joined by the usual residents, like Annette O’Toole, Benjamin Hollingsworth, and more for the ups and downs of life in mountainous California.

Virgin River season 5 was split into two parts, though you won’t get another ten episodes so soon. Instead, a double-bill is scheduled to arrive on November 30, right in time for Thanksgiving. One of the best TV series as a holiday treat, how about that?
