With the release date for Virgin River Season 4 revealed, fans are naturally curious as to what changes the show will bring. So it wasn’t really a surprise many started noticing Charmaine’s missing photos from the newly released promo images.
Charmaine (Lauren Hammersley) was initially introduced to us as lovely but territorial, despite being in a very casual relationship with Jack (Martin Henderson). Unfortunately, she had developed strong feelings for him that he did not reciprocate.
When Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) arrived in town, Charmaine instantly sensed Jack's interest, and things quickly devolved. Her announcement that she was pregnant with Jack's twins' complicated matters even further.
Fans believe Charmaine will not appear in Virgin River Season 4
Netflix shared numerous photos from the upcoming season following the announcement of the Virgin River Season 4 premiere date. Fans observed that Charmaine and Todd were not present.
Others pointed out that seeing Charmaine before the season premiere might have spoiled a storyline. While the cast of Virgin River was filming in Vancouver, Hammersly was posting on social media from her home in Nova Scotia.
Will Charmaine return for Virgin River Season 4?
Despite the fact that she has yet to appear in any of the season's promotional materials, Virgin River showrunner Sue Tenney has already guaranteed a huge Charmaine moment this season.
“Charmaine is such a wonderfully complex and relatable character,” Virgin River showrunner Sue Tenney told Entertainment Weekly.
“Everyone has loved somebody that didn’t love them back. She’s always going to be in love with [Jack], but she’s doing her damnedest to move forward. And then, she got a husband. We have a pretty big bombshell for her coming in the following season, if we have a Season 4, that’s going to blow everybody away.”
However, because her presence in the program was so limited in Season 3 and she has yet to be seen in Virgin River Season 4, this could be Tenney and the writers' approach of phasing out the character.
If this is true, it might signify that either something bad happens to the hairstylist or that the twin babies she's carrying aren't Jack's.
We can only hope that nothing bad has happened to the character as a result of her new crazy husband's actions.
