Virgin River fans have been eagerly awaiting news on season 6 of the Netflix drama. The show's official Instagram page posted an announcement, but instead of a release date for new episodes, they shared the launch of a mobile game. Judging by the comments, longtime fans of the series had some thoughts about the news.

Virgin River shared a preview of the game with the caption, "Now you’re the main character in Netflix Stories: Virgin River," and fans ran to the comments to leave their thoughts, namely that the news does not involve a season 6 update:

  • "We don’t want a game we want season 6"

  • "Honestly I thought that was going to be the trailer for season 6."

  • "How about next season already? 😒"

  • "Wow... this is unhinged"

  • "WHAT!!?? 🤦🏻♂️"

  • "Do all the characters ask how are you feeling constantly? LOL"

According to Netflix, the game, which is available through the Netflix Games app, serves as a "interactive season of the series … starring you. More specifically, it’s a narrative-fueled, character-focused game that allows players to influence and shape its evolving story through choices and interactions."

If the game is not enough to keep you busy until season 6 drops, rest assured, new episodes are on the way, but Netflix has not shared a release date.

Series star Martin Henderson posted a selfie from the makeup chair this week and told fans that they're in the "final stretch of shooting Season 6." He wrote, "Been a huge season with a lot of what I hope makes you fans very happy."
