If you haven’t started watching Netflix’s new swoon-worthy series Virgin River yet – you’re missing out!

The romantic drama – based on the best-selling book series by Robyn Carter - is coming back for its second season this November and we can't wait!

The show stars New Zealand’s own heartthrob, Martin Henderson, who you may recognise from Shortland Street, Bride and Prejudice, and of course, Grey’s Anatomy.

Virgin River follows nurse practitioner Melinda, played by She’s the Man actress Alexandra Breckenridge, who moves from LA to the small town of Virgin River to escape her painful past.

There she meets the charming Jack (Henderson), the owner of the local bar, and a former Marine. However, Mel’s transition to small-town living doesn’t go as smoothly as she expected and it’s not long until drama - and romance - ensues.

The second season is sure to delve into even more drama after the first season's shocking season finale!

"Engagement. Babies. Heartbreak. Murder. For a small town, Virgin River has its fair share of drama — and Mel Monroe is often in the middle of it," Netflix describes the upcoming season.

Virgin River also stars Vampire Diaries actor Daniel Gillies - who also happens to be a Kiwi - Smallville star Annette O’Toole and The West Wing's Tim Matheson.

The first season of Virgin River is available to stream on Netflix now and the second season is out on November 27.
