Jane The Virgin Season 4 Clocks In At Fewest Episodes Yet
The CW is whittling away Jane the Virgin. The Gina Rodriguez telenovella-style series had 22 episodes in both Seasons 1 and 2. Last year's third season came in at only 20 episodes. Now, TVLine is reporting that the fourth season will only be 17 episodes. The series, which is making the move to Fridays for the first time, will kick off on October 13th at 9 p.m. ET.
This does not necessarily mean doom for Jane. Word is that the decision to pare down the episodes was a creative one made by executive producer Jennie Urman, CBS Studios and The CW combined. Urman has in the past complained about the grueling production schedule, joking that she'd prefer a season with single-digit episodes, claiming six would be just about perfect.
That means we are no closer to discovering the secret to who Jane the Virgin's narrator is. Urman has said in the past that we'll discover the identity of the narrator as one of the last two scenes in the series. Though the popular guess is that its the voice of Jane's grown son, the EP says there have been close given in the narration and one from the season three finale has lead many fans to think that it could be Jane's deceased grandfather instead… looking down from Heaven. Both are named Mateo.
