Netflix show star Martin Henderson from Virgin River has given an exciting update about the new season, revealing that filming for the sixth season will start very soon.

In a recent Instagram Q&A session alongside co-star Alexandra Breckenridge, the actor from New Zealand shared with fans that filming is set to commence in the upcoming year, scheduled to start in February.

"We will be going back to start season 6 sometime in the New Year," said Martin. "Probably February or something like that". 

Remarking on the show's future, Martin said: "There will be more. How many more remains to be seen."

While Netflix has yet to renew the romance drama for a seventh season, Alexandra and showrunner Patrick Sean Smith seem hopeful that there will be more episodes beyond series six.

On filming season six, Alexandra told Deadline: "We're going to start as soon as the Vancouver weather allows. So hopefully in the spring is what I've been hearing. I keep trying to tell them they should just pick up Season 7 so we can just knock Seasons 6 and 7 and call it a day."

She added: "I'm not aware of it being the final season. Hopefully, we'll get more."

Patrick also told the publication: "There's no plans of wrapping anything up. I think, as long as these characters are living, there are always going to be stories to tell, and that's an incredible opportunity for any showrunner."

During Martin's Q&A, he also addressed fans' concerns about the darker and more dramatic themes of the latest season. "A lot of people were struggling with some of the heartache and darker nature of season five, which is probably a fair comment," he said. "I think the season definitely had a different feel, but I think it was really interesting. It pushed characters into different emotions and situations and then saw them be challenged by that but also come through it and deepen their character and their relationships and hopefully establish even stronger bonds with their loved ones and their community."
