Photos from the set of Virgin River Season 5 hint at some interesting new pairings. Who's back?

Fans of Virgin River still have to wait a long time for Season 5 to come out on Netflix, but the show is already being made in Vancouver, so behind-the-scenes photos show what the small-town drama will be like. 

As you may remember, this is how the fourth season of the show ended: Denny told Lizzie that he has Huntington's disease; the Preacher-Paige-Wes drama came to a tragic end; Brie's abusive ex came back into her life in a big way; Charmaine admitted that Jack isn't the father of her twins; and Jack, who is the father of Mel's baby, finally proposed to the woman he loves. 

And after all that has happened, we're a little surprised to see some characters on set together. We're surprised that some of the characters are even there. 

Scroll down to find more hints about Season 5 of Virgin River, as well as comments from the new showrunner, Patrick Sean Smith. When you're done,

Here, Mel and Jack are out on a beautiful mountain hike, doing what they do best. What, did you think they'd be stuck inside all spring and summer planning their wedding? Not likely. 

Smith tells TVLine that Mel and Jack are such a great couple that you want to enjoy everything as much as you can. "We don't want things to ever feel like they're stuck, but we also want to enjoy [their engagement] while we can. We're moving at this speed because they have a lot to do and a wedding is coming up in the future. 

Smith tells TVLine about Preacher's fifth season, "We'd love to see him interact with other characters he hasn't met yet." 

And from what I can tell, Colin Lawrence's character is getting to know more people in the town. 

Smith says of Preacher, "We're also getting to know more about his life outside of love." "There isn't much we know about him." 

And nothing says "not romantic" like a day out with Preacher and his fellow Marines. 

Because he has Huntington's disease, Denny may not want to date Lizzie, but it doesn't look like she's going to give up on him in Season 5. 

"If you know my work in the ABC Family cancer drama Chasing Life, you know how I'm going to approach that relationship," Smith tells TVLine of Denny and Lizzie. "I don't want to think about the bad things. The people in Huntington would want to see the same thing. That one was hard for me, but I figured it out by thinking about what I learned on Chasing Life. Take a story that could go in a bad direction and find a way to avoid it."
