Is Jane the Virgin on the verge of cancellation? According to SpoilerTV, The CW has cut down the episode order for the TV show’s upcoming fourth season.
The dramedy stars Gina Rodriguez as Jane, a young woman who ends up becoming pregnant thanks to being artificially inseminated by mistake. The cast also includes Justin Baldoni, Andrea Navedo, Yael Grobglas, Ivonne Coll, Jaime Camil, and Anthony Mendez (voice over).
SpoilerTV reports that the CW has lowered the episode count for season four ofJane the Virgin down from 21 to 17 episodes. While the network has not confirmed the cut, the news does seem a little odd. Typically, a lowered episode count means a series is ending or there is a scheduling conflict.
If the former, Jane the Virgin has been a steady ratings performer for The CW and doesn’t seem to be in trouble numbers-wise. Season three averaged a .35 rating in the 18-49 demo and 957,000 viewers.
Season four of Jane the Virgin debuts on The CW on October 13th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
