Instagram

“Jane the Virgin” is in the middle of Season 4 and it’s about to get a new cast member.

But first, a recap! On the last episode of “Jane the Virgin,”Jane went off on first book tour and Rafael and Rogelio play Mister Mom by staying home with little Mateo.

The show left us with that kiss cliffhanger between Jane and Rafael. So what’s in store next?

It’s been announced that Rosario Dawson is joining the cast.

Rosario Dawson vai tirar umas férias do universo de heróis na Marvel-Netflix para dar uma voltinha no hotel Marbella. A atriz foi escalada para a quarta temporada de Jane The Virgin. O anúncio foi feito durante o painel da CW no TCA 2018, evento destinado para a imprensa norte-americana. Por enquanto, não há maiores informações sobre a personagem de Rosario, mas ela vai aparecer em vários episódios da comédia estrelada por Gina Rodriguez, ainda este ano. Assim, a moça se junta a uma grande lista de vários convidados especiais, como Tyler Posey, Kate del Castillo, Diego Boneta, Gloria Estefan, Ke$ha, Juanes, Bruno Mars e Britney Spears. Nos Estados Unidos, Jane The Virgin retorna com episódios inéditos em 26 de janeiro. Aqui, a série faz parte da programação do canal Lifetime. Via: AdoroCinema.com

While there are very little details about her storyline, it’s being reported that Dawson will be featured in a multi-episode story arch, which means her part will be very juicy.

“Jane the Virgin” season 4 continues on Jan. 26

Jane is definitely in a love bind. With the book’s success, baby Mateo, and now Rafael, who knows how she’ll handle it all. But this leaves us wondering what kind of role Dawson will have. Will she play an encouraging character for Jane or a villain of sorts? We’re hoping for the latter, to be honest.

The timing of this revelation is very interesting. Did Gina Rodriguez and Dawson meet during their Hollywood Latina hang?

Fiercely Latina. #LatinaPower ????

Neither actress has confirmed the news of their collaboration. But it seems like Rodriguez and Dawson have been close ever since this picture was take two months ago.

Rodriguez also reposted this video that Dawson put on Instagram regarding the #TimesUp Movement at the Golden Globes.

#TimesUp #WhyWeWearBlack

#TIMESUP on pretending change is not needed,” Rodriguez tweeted. “We stand in solidarity because we are grateful to our sisters and brothers, both survivors and allies who have spoken out and forced the convo of sexual harassment, sexual assault and gender bias into the spotlight.”

Dawson will also reprise her role as Claire Temple on “The Defenders” on Netflix.

This girl is definitely going to have a very busy 2018. Get it!

The ‘Jane The Virgin’ Cast Shared Their Final Goodbyes And We’re Not Crying, You’re Crying

The ‘Jane The Virgin’ Cast Shared Their Final Goodbyes And We’re Not Crying, You’re Crying

Last week marked the end of an era for many diehard “Jane the Virgin” fans. For the past five years and for the exactly 100 episodes, we’ve laughed, cried, and spent a lot of time getting to know the Villanueva family. Through the original CW show, we also became enthralled in the drama telenevolas many of us Latinx kids grew up watching with our families. JTV might have not been the most realistic portrayal of our personal lives or even real life for that matter, but at the root of it, the show focused on the importance of love, friendships, and family; it taught us lessons we’ll never forget.

 But most importantly, JTV’s Jane Villanueva made sure many of us saw ourselves represented through our television screen for the past five years. 

Ultimately, Jane Villanueva was us. She made us feel seen, heard, and she helped us navigate life as Latina women worthy of love and worthy of achieving the impossible.

The last and final chapter of Jane the Virgin, which aired earlier this week on the CW, was the fairytale ending we were all waiting for since. For seasons, devoted fans followed Jane Villanueva’s journey when she stepped off that bus and was artificially inseminated with Rafael Solano’s baby. Since then, characters have been killed, characters have been kidnapped, characters have died and then come back to life, Jane has written a book and then another, we’ve encountered and defeated many villains, and well, you know how novelas go. 

But on the last episode, there were no surprises. No deaths. No bad luck. Just pure bliss.

The cast of Jane the Virgin also shared heartfelt tributes to a show that’s also forever changed their lives. 

Justin Baldoni, aka Rafael Solano, posted so many sweet behind the scenes photos of him alongside the cast. 

The day after her 35th birthday and on the day of the series finale, Gina Rodriguez shared a heartfelt tribute to the show that brought us Jane Villanueva.

“We started shooting the first season of Jane in July 2014. A few days into shooting I turned 30 on set. Yesterday I turned 35. And today is the very last episodes, 99 and 100 airing of Jane The Virgin. Five years. Five years of love, laughter, growth, pain, surprises, deaths, new births and a shit ton of memories. To my warriors who have supported me from day one, Thank you. I am able to live out my dream career because of you and I will never stop making art to bring Joy and Laughter into your home/train ride/plane ride or classroom! Art is my savior. Art is what makes me feel like I can fly,” she wrote in her caption.

If you’re like me, and have been #TeamJafael since the beginning, Justin Baldoni’s tribute will make you cry.

“For the past five years you have welcomed us into your homes, apartments, dorm rooms…but more than that—so much more than that—you have welcomed us into your hearts,” Baldoni wrote. “This show has been magic because you all are magic. And there are not enough words in all the languages of the world to adequately express how deeply grateful I am. So I will just say thank you.”

Yael Grobglas, who portrayed Petra in JTV, posted footage of the final table read of the series finale.

In the video, Gina and Justin can be seen reciting their last lines of JTV ever, unable to hold back tears. We dare you NOT to cry. 

Grobglas also shared a photo with her alongside the other fierce women characters on the show. ” I’m so happy we got to end on our own terms unlike most shows and wrap things up at our own time but I’m still incredibly overwhelmed by this chapter ending. So people are asking me how I feel.. I don’t know,” she wrote.

Our favorite fictional mama, Xiomara, shared a video of her watching the series finale. We’ll miss you, Xo! 

Jaime Camil, the best fictional father and telenovela star that there ever was, also shared a heartfelt message to JTV fans on the night of the finale.

“100 episodes, 5 years, unlimited amount of feelings, indescribable friendships, overwhelming support, gratitude, joy, love and of course, the greatest fans. Thank you for giving us the privilege to entertain you. Your kind words mean everything,” Camil wrote in an Instagram caption. We’ll miss you forever, Rogelio de la Vega. 

Despite it being the final season of “Jane the Virgin,” it’s important to not forget that we’ll now be getting a spinoff! In case you forgot, Jane the Novela–which will be narrated by Gina Rodriguez–will follow the format of a American Horror Story definition of an anthology. This means it will be telling one complete story each episode like a traditional telenovela. 

Jennie Snyder Urman told PopSugar that if the show makes it to the second season, provided that it even gets picked up to be a series in the first place, we might get lucky and see other Jane the Virgin characters appear as well.

So this isn’t a goodbye, it’s hopefully a see you later for JTV fans.

“Don’t forget to enjoy the ride because every chapter comes to a close,” Gina Rodriguez says in Chapter 99, part of the two-part series finale. “So I have enjoyed the ride, things like this, they are winning the lottery. I will always thank Jane, the character.” 

We’ll never forget the 100 chapters Jane the Virgin brought us. *cries* 

‘Jane the Virgin’ Finally Revealed Who The Narrator Is In Its Series Finale And Fans Are Freaking Out

‘Jane the Virgin’ Finally Revealed Who The Narrator Is In Its Series Finale And Fans Are Freaking Out

@ksmith5200

After five amazing seasons of Jane the Virgin, last night marked the 100th chapter of our favorite modern-day telenovela. Through Jane Villanueva and her family, we laughed, we ugly cried, and most importantly of all, many of us–Latinx women–saw ourselves represented in these beautiful characters. During the series finale, we got to see Jane finally finish her book and also get the happy ending she deserved. But we also got that one very important question on our minds answered: who was the narrator this whole time?

Warning: This post contains spoilers for the Jane the Virgin series finale.

While many fans theorized about the true identity of the Jane the Virgin narrator, last night we got our answer: Mateo, aka Mr. Sweet Face. 

Fans have been theorizing about the narrator’s identity since the show began, but they became a lot more transfixed with finding out who it was when the fifth and final season of Jane the Virgin premiered earlier this year. Executive producer Jennie Snyder Urman had previously said that JTV fans would find out who the narrator was “at the end of the series… [as] part of the last two scenes.” She was truly saving the best for the last. 

“Throughout the whole series there have been clues peppered, and there are things that are specific about the way the narrator is relating to people in the world–the things that he says,” Snyder Urman said of the big reveal. “There’s always the feeling of the narrator being in control of the story. There’s a constant reminder that this is a telenovela… We’ve known it in our heads, which has made it easy to track those things throughout.” 

Previously JTV fans had suspected of other potential narrators including Jane’s grandfather Mateo, Jane’s father Rogelio, or even Jane herself.

During last week’s episode, someone on Twitter even introduced the idea that perhaps the narrator could be Esteban Santiago (Rogelio’s frenemy), because while Sin Rostro had Jane captive, “the flower fell by him dramatically and then later Raf somehow knew where Jane was.” But of course, Esteban didn’t turn out to be our narrator. 

It’s also important to note that JTV creator Snyder Urman confirmed with Vanity Fair that Mateo’s role was always meant to be this. “He was always going to be the narrator,” she said. 

So this whole time, Mateo was retelling the story of how his parents fell in love as Jane Villaneuva wrote it in her book?! Beautiful. Simply beautiful. 

As soon as the Jane the Virgin narrator was revealed to the whole wide world during the series finale, fans were shocked, surprised, and others completely saw it coming.

*cue the waterworks*

Fans were caught off guard as soon as the truth was revealed during Jane and Rafael’s wedding.

This was literally our face. Plus some tears. 

Another fan couldn’t understand why people were so surprised about this revelation.

I mean, how could we have known? It felt too good to be true. 

Some of us needed more time to really let it sink in.

And we were definitely ugly crying at the revelation.

However, some fans walked away from the big series finale reveal feeling unimpressed.  

Joanna Robinson, who writes for Vanity Fair, compared it to the Gossip Girl reveal (another show where we were left to guess and theorize over Gossip Girl actually was). Robinson added that the JTV narrator reveal “doesn’t make any sense.”

Fans thought it didn’t make sense (and that it felt a little weird) due to the sexual nature of some scenes that had to be narrated on JTV.

These fans thought that it would be a little weird that Mateo–even as an adult–narrate storylines about Jane’s orgasms or about Alba using a vibrator. But if he’s just reading off of the book his mother wrote about her life, why would it be weird?

Another fan noticed that in Chapter 98 of JTV, the narrator hinted at his sexuality–insinuating that he’s gay. 

In this chapter of JTV, Rogelio is trying to persuade his baby momma Darci to move to New York, telling her it would be a good move for her dating business, “Did you know that New York has the most single people?” To which the narrator says, “Ooh. I should move there.” But quickly, the narrator backtracks on that statement when Rogelio says “single women outnumber single men.” 

During Chapter 99 of JTV, where the characters and actors spoke about the trajectory of the show, we also got a glimpse of the man behind the voiceovers.

Twitter immediately began to swoon over Anthony Mendez. 

Now, excuse us while we watch Jane the Virgin from the beginning and this time, envision Mr. Sweet Face as the narrator.
