Last season, Jane the Virgin attracted positive critical attention but The CW series didn’t draw big ratings. How will it perform in season two? Will the numbers rise or fall? Could the show be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
On Jane the Virgin, a driven 23-year-old woman named Jane (Gina Rodriguez) ends up becoming pregnant thanks to being artificially inseminated by mistake. The biological donor is a married cancer survivor, the owner of the hotel where Jane works, and her former teenage crush. She decides to have the baby and things get even more complicated from there. The rest of the cast includes Andrea Navedo, Justin Baldoni, Yael Grobglas, Brett Dier, Ivonne Coll, Jaime Camil, and Anthony Mendez (voice over).
