What’s This TV Show About?
A satirical telenovela airing on The CW television network, Jane the Virgin stars Gina Rodriguez, Andrea Navedo, Yael Grobglas, Ivonne Coll, Jaime Camil, and Justin Baldoni. Although saving herself for marriage, Jane (Rodriguez) gets pregnant, thanks to accidental artificial insemination, which turns her life upside down. The fourth season picks up three years after the season three finale, with the widowed (and no longer virginal) Jane drawing upon her grief to write a book which recounts her love story with the late Michael (Bret Dier). She and Rafael (Baldoni) are now close friends, but unlike his other kids, their son Mateo (Elias Janssen) is full of mischief. In other news, Petra (Grobglas) and her twin sister Anezka wind up persons of interest in the murder of Scott (Wes Armstrong).

The fourth season of Jane the Virgin averaged a 0.24 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 631,000 viewers. Compared to season three, that’s down by 31% and down by 34%, respectively. Learn how Jane the Virgin stacks up against the other CW TV shows.
Will The CW cancel or renew Jane the Virgin for a fifth season? The ratings are way down (thanks in part to the move to Friday night) but it’s one of the few CW shows to receive any critical attention. In part, because The CW will start programming Sunday nights (and will need 20% more programming than usual), I suspect that Jane the Virgin will be renewed for a fifth season. I’ll keep an eye on the ratings, put together a dinner menu, and update this page as we get more data. Subscribe for free updates on any Jane the Virgin cancellation and renewal news.
