It seems like years of working on 'Jane the Virgin' has taught Gina Rodriguez a thing or two about keeping people on the edge of their seats.
The CW ostensibly has 83 percent of its new, Sunday-through-Friday slate accounted for, with Monday’s renewal of 10 shows — including the ratings-challenged "Dynasty."
Now that "Jane the Virgin" fans can buy Jane Gloriana Villanueva's book "Snow Falling," we look back on other books by fictional characters that were published in real life, from “Lost,” “Twin Peaks,” “Castle,” and more.
As the saying goes, two heads are better than one, so twins on TV shows means double the fun. At least, some of the time; other times, it’s more like that quote from Macbeth — “double double, toil and trouble.”
The titular heroine of Jane the Virgin has faced many romantic ups and downs in the last season and a half. When we first met Jane (Gina Rodriguez), she was dating and later got engaged to Det. Then, she was accidentally inseminated and impregnated by Rafael Solano (Justin Baldoni), a wealthy hotelier whom she once had a crush on. Fans are passionately divided between the two camps, Team Michael and Team Rafael.
In 2015, television made us laugh, it made us cry, it made us text friends “OMG?!” There were so many incredible moments that we couldn’t stop talking about on Twitter, in the office kitchen, via Skype with our moms. Related: The 26 Best TV Episodes of 2015 There were hilarious musical numbers like “Pinot Noir” on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Kristen Wiig’s “Chandelier” dance at the Grammys. We stopped breathing for a few minutes during thrilling fights on Justified and Daredevil.
Britney Spears guest-starred on Monday’s Jane the Virgin. The queen of pop played herself, and the plot was that she and Relogio had some bad blood from a teleprompter mistake back in 2009. Britney’s performance as herself was pleasantly believable, and we hope this will mean more acting roles for her down the line. Jane the Virgin airs @9pm on CW.
Warning: This recap of the “Chapter Twenty-Seven” episode of Jane the Virgin contains spoilers. The moment we’ve been waiting for all season has arrived, Jane fans: Pop goddess Britney Spears dropped by for her much-hyped guest appearance this week. And even the Narrator is excited; he opens the episode by asking us, “Ready to hit this baby one more time?” Related: ‘Jane the Virgin’ Season Premiere Recap: Jane’s Baby Got Back So how does Britney get involved in Jane’s crazy telenovela adventures?
Two of our favorite TV ladies — Jane the Virgin’s Jane Villanueva and The Mindy Project’s Mindy Lahiri — have recently become mothers for the first time, each welcoming home a new son this season. Well, Jane actually had her baby at the end of last season, but then he was kidnapped, and… it’s a long story. Related: TV Baby Power Ranking: Which Tot Reigns Supreme? Anyway, both Jane and Mindy have been great, attentive moms so far, but they’ve also understandably hit a few speed bumps as well.
She hasn’t lifted a finger, and Richie Sambora is going to be there! So, we devised a formula — including story sway, cuteness, and fan support — to calculate just how powerful 14 current TV babies are. 14. Little Sam, Game of Thrones Kind of useless, except as motivation for Big Sam (John Bradley) to take care of Gilly (Hannah Murray). Judith, The Walking Dead Honestly, until Rick (Andrew Lincoln) offered to let Morgan (Lennie James) hold Judith in the Season 6 premiere, we forgot she even existed. His existence caused lots of problems between Francis and Mary (Adelaide Kane) and between Mary and Lola (Anna Popplewell).
Spears will guest star in an episode of The CW’s hit comedy this season, and Yahoo TV went to Jane showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman to get more details on the big news.
Yahoo TV reached Mendez on the phone (of course — the man’s voice is his living!) to chat about his Emmy nomination, how he actually records his parts of the show (spoiler alert: you will be jealous), and which famous names inspired his Latin Lover character.
Dig deeper and look at the full list of Emmys nominees, and you uncover some fun trivia, unlikely races, and that 'Gotham' is, technically, the king of Superhero TV.
Yahoo TV chatted with Rodriguez about Jane’s remarkable season, her first reaction to reading the pilot script (and seeing that title), what that Golden Globes night was like for her and the cast, and how Jane has made her stretch as an actor.
In the video above, we put together a compilation of Rogelio’s most ridiculous boasts, which make it abundantly clear how much Camil deserves an Emmy nomination next month for best supporting actor in a comedy.
We knew that Monday night’s "Jane the Virgin" season finale would feature the arrival of Jane’s baby — but we didn’t know that they’d throw a bunch of shocking twists at us, too.
In the video above, we ask the Jane cast to give us some season finale scoop, and while they’re light on specifics — Jaime Camil (Rogelio) says it’s “such a good episode! I want to tell you everything… but I can’t!” — they promise it’ll deliver a number of jaw-dropping shockers.
The Cast of ‘Jane the Virgin’ on Season Finale What in the world will happen on the season finale of the CW’s Jane the Virgin ? Yahoo TV caught up with the cast at Paley Fest to find out. Plus, who is team Michael and who is team Raphael? Watch the video to find out!
Ladies with an attitude, fellas who weren’t in the mood (for hanky panky with a swine). That little tweak on a classic Madonna lyric might be one way to describe the 74th Peabody Awards’ entertainment winners.
If you’re looking for a woman theatrical enough to play Rogelio De La Vega’s mother, an EGOT winner is a great place to start. Showbiz legend Rita Moreno guest stars on Monday’s all-new 'Jane the Virgin' as Liliana, Rogelio’s mom and Jane’s grandm… sorry, “glam-ma.”
Packed with steamy love triangles and jaw-dropping plot twists, The CW’s freshman comedy "Jane the Virgin" burns with the fiery passion of a Spanish telenovela. In the clip above, stars Gina Rodriguez, Justin Baldoni, Andrea Navedo, Jaime Camil, Ivonne Coll, Brett Dier, and Yael Grobglas give us a quick acting lesson, demonstrating soap opera reactions like “seductive,” “shocked,” “sad,” “angry,” and “planning something evil.”
