For four straight seasons, the dramatic and hilarious cast of “Jane the Virgin” has entertained and kept us on the edge of our streets. In the best of episodes, we’ve laughed, fell in love, cried and felt the warmth of our Latinidad. Now, with the final episode of the series being officially fought, there’s no denying Jane fans will get to feel those feels all the way to the max.

On Wednesday, the cast of the show revealed that “Jane The Virgin” officially filmed its final episode.

And things got PREtty emotional y’all.

There were tons of love letters to cast friends in the form of goodbye Instagram posts.

And so many tears!!

Like so much looooveee!

Which makes me wonder if Yael and Justin get together in the series???

And of course, Gina had a bunch to say that brought so many of us to tears.

So many great memories brought to us by this lively soul who helped to give life to a Latina character we sorely needed over the past few years!

Still, through all of the tears remember there’s tons to look forward to!

In the upcoming season, set to air sometime this year, we’ll be introduced to new characters, new love triangles, more cameos, and more Latinx women in the director’s chair. Here’s what else we know…

1. “13 Reasons Why” Star Tommy Dorfman will be joining the final season of JTV. 

According to The Wrap, Tommy Dorfman from the Netflix original “13 Reasons Why” will be joining the cast of “Jane the Virgin.” And he’s taking on a completely different role. Dorfman will play Bobby, “an associate of the show’s recurring drug-lord character Sin Rostro.” We can’t wait to see what trouble he brings to Miami.

2. Michael Cordero is coming back.

Got my boys back. #season5

A post shared by Gina Rodriguez (@hereisgina) on

Yup, he’s back from the dead. As a Rafael Solano stan, that’s all you need to know.

3. Gina Rodriguez will be directing the premiere episode.

Back in season four, Gina directed her first episode of the series “Chapter Seventy-Four” and of course, it turned out one of the best episodes of the season. Now, she’s back in the director’s chair for the show’s final season.  

4. Another Latina will also have a directorial role.

Like Gina, Eva Longoria has also sat in the director’s chair for JTV before. She had such great success that she is coming back for more. 

5. Get ready for more love triangle dramatics.

As we mentioned, Michael Cordero has suddenly reappeared. Wasn’t he dead? But with Sin Rostro still in the equation somehow, who knows where he could have been. So now that he’s back in the picturee — right when Rafael was about to possibly propose to Jane — you can expect some drama. Who will Jane choose? How will this change things between her and Rafael? 

6. We might have to wait until 2019.

Ideally, JTV would have already been close to airing for its upcoming season this fall. But now, according to the CW network via Cosmopolitan, we might have to wait until January 2019. Let the countdown begin.  

7. The person J.R. shot in the finale of Season 4 is someone Petra knows… WHAT?

Light up the night! Happy #4thOfJuly! #JaneTheVirgin

So if you’re all caught up and remember that crazy season finale, you’ll remember that it also ended with a gunshot. J.R. shot someone in Petra’s hotel room, and it might be someone Petra knows. But who the heck could it possibly be?

8. We’ll finally find out who the narrator is.

It’s so exciting to learn that we’ll finally know the face behind JTV’s iconic narrator. According to Jennie Snyder Urman, we’ll find out who the narrator is before the show ends AND she also says there have been hints sprinkled here and there throughout the series. So, don’t cancel out any of your theories.

9. Ricky Martin might make a cameo.

According to an interview for The New York Times with the show’s creator Jennie Snyder Urman, we might get a Ricky Martin cameo. “We also have a Ricky Martin dream in our writers’ room. Rogelio’s alluded to a little bit of a history with Ricky Martin, and I’d love to see if we could get him on.” PLEASE DO.
