What happens in the Virgin River season three trailer?

Netflix have released a short teaser for the upcoming season, showcasing another dramatic series to come.

In the two-minute clip, we see Jack dramatically wheeled to hospital with Mel by his side, before jumping in time three weeks later, showing a nearly recovered Jack back at the barbecue.

As well as revealing that Jack is alive, the trailer teases a number of upcoming plot points from Charmaine’s new man and Preacher struggling to look after Paige’s son Christopher, to Doc’s medical diagnosis and Mel’s wishes to have a baby with Jack.

At the start of season 3, we'll likely get answers about who shot Jack. For now, the cast is just as confused as the rest of us. "The writers are certainly leading you to believe that it's the Calvin group of people, but maybe if there's a season 3, there will be a twist in that," Breckenridge explained to Entertainment Tonight.
