Despite positive reviews, the Jane the Virgin TV show continued to draw very low ratings in season two. Will the numbers improve in season three, now that The CW series has a stronger lead-in like Supergirl? Could Jane be cancelled or, is it essentially guaranteed to be renewed so there will be enough episodes for syndication? 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. Once she has the baby, things seem to get even more complicated. She’s caught between the attraction for her detective boyfriend, Michael (Brett Dier), and her boss, Rafael (Justin Baldoni), who’s also her baby’s daddy. Now that she’s married one of them, is the drama over? The rest of the cast includes Andrea Navedo, Yael Grobglas, Ivonne Coll, Jaime Camil, and Anthony Mendez (voice over).
