Season 2 of Virgin River left off with Jack being shot. As Season 3 starts we learn pretty quickly he’s survived, but there’s plenty of drama left in town including a death, cancer, and scandals.

Why is Virgin River Season 3 rated TV-14? Mostly for language and heavy content. This show really isn’t for kids or even teens. There’s not a whole lot of content to keep them interested. 


There is some language in Virgin River Season 3, but it’s not super heavy. Words like damn, a–, sh*t, and hell and also references to g-d and Christ.

Is Virgin River Season 3 Appropriate for Kids Under 14?

Virgin River Season 3 is rated TV-14 and it’s an appropriate rating. It’s very much like a soap opera, and can sometimes get depressing. It seems like everyone is going through something all the time. 

I’d recommend Virgin River Season 2 for kids ages 14 and up if they like this genre. There are some things to watch for mentioned above. Virgin River is a more rugged Sweet Magnolias, but they have similar characteristics. But seriously how many issues can Jack and Mel have already? 

If you’ve seen the other seasons, then much hasn’t changed, though it seems like some of the issues are heavier and continue from the other seasons. This season felt a little slower-paced. If you’re invested in the characters, then you’ll want to see how it plays out, but it didn’t feel the same.
