When it was announced Netflix would be bringing her book series to life in an adaptation of “Virgin River,” author Robyn Carr told Forbes she was thrilled. When she visited the set during the filming of Season 1, her excitement deepened. “Luckily, honestly, I can say it was even better than I’d imagined,” she noted. “It was pretty cool.”
Carr said she had a consulting role, providing feedback to showrunner Sue Tenney and executive producer Roma Roth to help translate the world she’d created, adding she was open to some changes. “They came up with some new ideas and storylines, some of which I found myself saying, ‘Damn, I wish I’d thought about that. That’s a pretty good angle, it’s innovative,'” Carr said.
The author has also supported the show’s later seasons, using her social media and website to promote news about the Netflix series. Fans of her books have more reason to celebrate. Not only is Netflix likely to announce “Virgin River” Season 4 soon, but Carr also recently announced her “Sullivan’s Crossing” book series is also getting an adaptation from CTV and Crave.
