Virgin River won many fans when it was first released on Netflix back in December 2019. However, while fans wait for season two, some might be wondering if there are any similar shows they can binge-watch. Express.co.uk has rounded up some of the best alternatives for viewers to enjoy.

Sweet Magnolias

Where to watch: Netflix

Another romantic television show fans might enjoy is Sweet Magnolias, which follows the story of three friends.

Set in the town of Serenity, the 10-part drama focuses on Maddie (played by JoAnna Garcia Swisher), Helen (Heather Headley) and Dana Sue (Brooke Elliott) as they juggle relationships, family and careers.

The show also stars Logan Allen, Anneliese Judge and Carson Rowland.

Back in July 2020, the show was also renewed for a second season, which is hoped to return soon.

Hart of Dixie

Where to watch: Buy on Amazon Prime Video

Rachel Bilson leads the cast of this popular romantic television series sure to be a hit with Virgin River fans.

She plays Zoe Hart, who is a New York City doctor who changes big city life for a rural town in Alabama.

Alongside Bilson, the show also starred Scott Porter, Jamie King and Virgin River star Tim Matheson.

The CW series ran for four seasons in total between 2011 and 2015.

Chesapeake Shores

Where to watch: Netflix

Chesapeake Shores is based on a book series, just like Virgin River is.

The premise is also quite similar as well given it follows a young woman as she returns to her Maryland hometown.

The show stars actors like Jesse Metcalfe, Laci Mailey, Emilie Ullerup and Barbara Niven.

The series is available to stream on Netflix now and there are already four seasons available.

Outlander

Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video

If a really good romantic series is what you’re after, Outlander is one of the best.

The time-travelling historical romance follows Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) as they fall in love.

The twist is Claire is actually from the 1940s but she winds up in Jamie’s time period of the 1700s.

As well as romance, the series also features some medical subplot just like Virgin River as Claire is a nurse.

Grey’s Anatomy

Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video

Grey’s Anatomy will appeal to fans of Virgin River who love the medical aspect of the drama.

However, this is not to say there is not also plenty of romance in the long-running series about doctors.

As well as the similar themes, Jack Sheridan star Martin Henderson played Dr Nathan Riggs from season 12 until season 14.

He had a romantic relationship with Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) in a storyline fans are sure to love.

Virgin River season 2 is released on Netflix on November 27.
