The binge-worthy saga, which is based on the Harlequin book series of the same name by Robyn Carr, premiered in December 2019. Viewers fell in love with the story of nurse practitioner Mel Monroe (played by Breckenridge) who, after escaping her tragic past, discovers small-town life and love in northern California.

"Despite not knowing whether her baby belongs to her deceased husband, Mark, or Jack, Mel begins season four with a sense of optimism," Netflix teased in a release. "For years she yearned to be a mother and her dream is one step closer to reality. While Jack is supportive and excited, the question of paternity continues to gnaw at him. Complicating matters is the arrival of a handsome new doctor, who's in the market to start a family of his own."

Ooooh, y'all!

And Preacher will try his hand at a new romantic connection while still holding out hope for a reunion with Christopher and Paige.
