After five seasons and 100 episodes, Jane the Virgin is quickly coming to an end. Like many big hit sitcoms throughout history, a simple finale won’t do as a send-off. No, like the Seinfelds of old, the finale will air after a one-hour retrospective celebrating the five seasons, before putting the series to bed. The celebration will cover Jane the Virgin from conception to birth and beyond.
It’s a good time to look back at the boyfriends, drama, and perhaps most of all, the juicy chisme that made the first American telenovela such a hit—not to mention, launched Gina Rodriquez into stardom. And unlike a real telenovela, you don’t have to have a Spanish degree to understand it.
