If you didn’t already know, Season five of “Jane the Virgin” will be the last and final season and there’s a ton of chisme circulating about what we can expect. In the upcoming season, set to air sometime in 2019, 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.
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.

Last week @hereisgina and I were both directing on the same lot at the same time. Two women, two Latinas, two actors also acting…now I don’t know if this was history in the making but I know I felt damn proud of this moment. This is progress, this is the future, this is awesome! ✊????#HistoryMade #BossLadies #DirectorMode ????
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?
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.
