Virgin River have plans on bringing one of its characters back for season 4 despite being killed off.
Lynda Boyd who plays Lilly in the Netflix drama has revealed she will be returning to the show in flashback scenes, which will be really interesting as her character had a very sad ending.
Lilly had a tragic storyline after opening up to her close friends about her cancer diagnosis, and, towards the end of the show’s third season, Lilly sadly passed away from the illness
“When I did have that chat that day with those producers, they said that the plan was to bring me back in flashbacks – like Mel’s husband, her dead husband,” she told Radio Times.
“Nobody has said anything yet. As far as I know, Tara will look after Chloe. I’m pretty sure Annette [O’Toole] will come back as Hope. Nobody has any idea.”
Boyd also recently opened up about how difficult it was to film her cancer storyline, especially when it came to Lilly telling her friends as she has such a strong relationship with her co-stars.
“All those women are my friends in real life,” she said. “I’ve known Teryl (Rothery), who plays Muriel, since I was 14 years old. [She] and I used to take tap dancing lessons together, so standing up before them and telling them what a wonderful life I’ve had and how much it meant to me – they were all bawling.”
Virgin River seasons 1, 2 and 3 are available to stream on Netflix.
