Alexandra Breckenridge (This is Us, The Walking Dead) as Melinda Monroe: Desperate to move on from her painful past, she's left everything she knows behind in Los Angeles and accepted a job as a nurse practitioner in the remote northern California town of Virgin River.

Martin Henderson (Grey's Anatomy, Miracles from Heaven, Everest) as Jack Sheridan: A sharp-witted ex-Marine commander, Jack Sheridan moved to Virgin River after his service was over in search of a peaceful life, far away from the horrors of war.

Tim Matheson (The Affair, The Good Fight, The West Wing) as Doc Mullins: Set in his ways and a bit of a curmudgeon, he's not keen on working with anyone including Mel, who he views as a challenge to his authority.

Annette O'Toole (Smallville, Marvel's The Punisher) as Hope McCrea: Virgin River's brash and blunt mayor - a little rough around the edges, but her saving grace is her love for the town and her mission to preserve it.

Also featuring:

Jenny Cooper (Grey's Anatomy, Open Heart) as Joey Barnes: Mel's charming older sister, adviser, trusted confidante, and best friend.

David Cubitt (Siren, Medium) as Calvin: The unquestioned leader of the largest of the many illegal pot fields that litter the landscape around Virgin River.

Lexa Doig (Arrow, The Arrangement) as Paige Lassiter: A local entrepreneur, and an illustrious baker with a warm smile who has secrets of her own.

Daniel Gillies (The Originals, Saving Hope) as Mark: Mel's first love. Strikingly handsome and accomplished, a surgeon in the Los Angeles ER where Mel worked.

Lauren Hammersley (Orphan Black, Mr. D) as Charmaine Roberts: An attractive hair stylist from nearby Clear River, and competition for Jack's attention.

Benjamin Hollingsworth (Code Black, Cold Pursuit) as Dan Brady: Another former Marine under Jack's command, Brady differs from Preacher in almost every way.

Colin Lawrence (Riverdale, Good Doctor) as John "Preacher" Middleton: Jack's best friend, the two men served in the military together.

Ian Tracey (Bates Motel, Incorporated) as Jimmy: Calvin's lieutenant and enforcer, anyone unfortunate enough to incur Calvin's wrath is inevitably forced to deal with Jimmy.
