News on season 5 of Virgin River has slowed down since the summer when it was announced that Sue Tenney would no longer be the showrunner for Virgin River, being replaced by Patrick Sean Smith.
That’s now changed with the first major casting of the new season in the form of Kandyse McClure.
McClure has clocked up over 70 acting credits on IMDb with her most well-known roles, including playing Anastasia Dualla in Battlestar Galactica, Sue Snell in Carrie, and Sarikin in Seventh Son.
More recently, McClure played roles in Motherland: Fort Salem, The CW’s Charmed reboot (all three seasons streaming on Netflix US), Snowpiercer, Netflix’s V-Wars, and Syfy’s Ghost Wars.
No details on McClure’s character name or how she fits into the plot were not revealed.
Some online speculation has suggested we could see Jack’s ex-wife in a new season, but we’ll have to wait and see.
