Jeb From Virgin River: Here Is How He Dies in Season 5!

Jeb, played by actor Sandy Robson, is one of the recurring characters who has been on Virgin River since Season 1. Even though he is not a regular character, he has had pretty important recurring roles, especially in Season 5.

Melissa, who owns a criminal drug business, intends to move her illicit funds through Jack‘s glamping enterprise. She informs Jack that she wants to help him grow his company, and she later joins him as a partner. Brady does not want to work for Melissa, but he is compelled to work for her for Brie’s sake.

Melissa forces Brady to add his friend, Jeb, to the covert fentanyl team at the lumberyard. Brady tries to warn him, but Jeb is determined to keep the extra cash for his family. Later, Jeb agrees to cover the lumber/drug shift when Brie texts to inquire about having dinner with Jack that evening. Brady accepts with joy.

At Brie’s gorgeous new home, Brady and Jack have an awkward small-talk exchange during which Jack assures Brady that everything will be fine as long as he stops committing crimes.

Unfortunately, Brady is unable to avoid committing crimes; as a result, Jeb is discovered dead when Brady passes by the lumber yard after dinner. It is revealed that Jeb died because of a fentanyl overdose.

Will There Be Season 6 of Virgin River?

Yes, there will be Season 6 of Virgin River. It was announced back in May 2023, a long time before the fifth season’s recent release.

Of course, it’s still uncertain when Virgin River season 6 will actually premiere. Due to the continuing Actors Strike and the 2023 Writers Strike, the cast of Virgin River is now unable to film anything. If we had to hazard a prediction, we’d say the season 6 premiere would happen around early 2025.
