Virgin River (2019)
This Netflix drama follows Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge), a nurse practitioner who becomes a midwife in the town of Virgin River. She leaves her life in LA to escape her past and heal.
Why it’s a Good Option for Sweet Magnolias fans: Add a dash of small-town, painful past, nosey neighbors, city girl who doesn’t quite fit in at first, but makes it work later, and then you have the premise of many shows and movies but this time it’s the plot for Virgin River. Clearly, Sweet Magnolias shares many of those similar themes, including finding a new romance.
