Fifth series of ‘Jane the Virgin’ to be its last
Comedy show “Jane the Virgin” is reaching the end of its term as The CW announces plans for a fifth and final series.
The CW’s president, Mark Pedowitz, made the announcement during a May 17 presentation in New York, United States.
The show’s renewal for a fifth season ensures that “Jane the Virgin” will reach a milestone 100 seasons since its introduction in 2014.
Since then, the show has been nominated for a Golden Globe in comedy on four occasions, with lead actress Gina Rodriguez responsible for three of those nods, and winning once.
Rodriguez has gone on to star or co-star in action thrillers “Deepwater Horizon” and “Annihilation”, animated features “The Star” and “Ferdinand”, and is to lead both the TV series and feature film adaptations of “Carmen Sandiego”.
Also featuring throughout the show’s previous four seasons have been Andrea Navedo (Netflix animation “Trollhunters”), Ivonne Coll (“The Godfather: Part II”), Jaime Camil, Yael Grobglas, Justin Baldoni and Anthony Mendez.
It was based on the Venezuelan soap opera “Juana la Virgen” which ran for 152 episodes between March and October 2002.
Jennie Snyder Urman, who created the U.S. show, is also involved in bringing the “Charmed” reboot to life. JB
