After the shocking season two finale, which saw bar owner Jack Sheridan (played by Martin Henderson) shot by an anonymous gunman, Virgin River viewers are patiently waiting for updates on which of their beloved characters will return to the small town in season three. However, a new first-look clip from the Netflix drama has confirmed a return for Preacher (Colin Lawrence) and youngster Christopher (Chase Petriw) – despite being offered the job of his dreams.

The romantic drama, based on the Virgin River series of novels by Robyn Carr, follows the journey of Mel Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge), a nurse practitioner who moves to the small town from Los Angeles.

Upon arriving in the new town, Mel first meets Jack Sheridan in his bar, as well as his friend and the bar’s chef Preacher.

Preacher’s future has been uncertain since he was offered a job in San Francisco away from Virgin River in season two.

Though, fans have just been given a sneak peek that heavily suggests the chef’s time in the small town is far from over.

Netflix has granted fans a little taste of what’s to come in season three with new a handful of first-look clips.

The season two finale left audiences wondering whether Preacher would return to the series, however, a new clip shared by Southern Living all but confirms the character’s place in Virgin River.

Ever since the pilot, Preacher has grown incredibly close to bakery owner Paige Lassiter (Lexa Doig), though the pair ran into trouble after she accidentally killed her abusive husband, forcing Paige to go on the run.

Preacher has been helping her through the tough times and, judging from the latest clip, he is still helping his friend.

In the first-look clip, Preacher is seen tucking Paige’s son Christopher into bed, and the latter is annoyed that Preacher doesn’t have a “PlayStation or an Xbox”.

At Paige’s insistence, the chef has been caring for him as she is AWOL.

But despite his annoyance at not having games to hand, Preacher begins to comfort Christopher as the pair talk about the idea of him going to camp.

Preacher reveals that he met “best friend” Jack when the two were in the Marines together and said Christopher could too find a pal for life when he heads to camp.

Christopher and Preacher’s sweet bond is evident for all to see as the youngster is all smiles after the chef’s kind words.

But does this mean that Preacher turned down the job in San Francisco to be with Christpher and return to Virgin River? Or have the pair relocated?

After their first meet, Jamie (Carmel Amit) told Preacher that she believed that he was wasting his brilliant culinary skills in a small town like Virgin River.

A friend of Jamie’s had a new restaurant that was opening so she offers him a job.

However, Preacher had to decide quickly and was unsure whether he wanted to leave town.

He asked his friend Jack if he could become a joint partner of the bar and Jack declined, prompting Preacher to accept Jamie’s offer.

But given Christopher is staying at his home, it looks like San Francisco will have to wait.

Netflix has revealed that the drama’s season three will consist of 10 episodes.

Original stars Alexandra Breckinridge, Martin Henderson, Annette O’Toole, Colin Lawrence, Tim Matheson, Grayson Gurnsey, and Benjamin Hollingsworth will all be returning for the third season.

That’s not all fans have to look forward to though as there will be two new series regulars as well.

Stacey Farber has joined the cast as Lilly’s (Lynda Boyd) daughter Tara, and Kai Bradbury will portray the mysterious Denny.

Whether or not Preacher returns as a regular cast member remains to be seen but, thankfully, it appears that Virgin River will continue to explore his character’s journey as the series progresses.

Virgin River seasons 1 and 2 are available on Netflix.
