Critic Reviews for Jane the Virgin Season 2

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

In the world of Jane the Virgin, reality always takes second place to implausible dramatics, and that's exactly what makes the show work in the first place.

Oct 12, 2015 | Full Review…

Jane the Virgin is easily, consistently the most superlative show on television, a feat made even more impressive by the fact that it requires dozens of cogs to turn together to make it work.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Happily, this first episode of season two makes several wise choices.

Oct 13, 2015 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The status quo has changed for Jane, but the show around her hasn't, and tonight's episode is an immensely promising start to the second season that doesn't lose any of the style, wit, and emotion that define the series.

Oct 13, 2015 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Happy to be watching this one for the long haul.

Oct 12, 2015 | Full Review…

The season 2 premiere is an even more accomplished distillation of the show's consistently invigorating mixture.

Oct 12, 2015 | Full Review…

Jane the Virgin hasn't broken its stride. If anything, its narrative seems to be a bit stronger than it was before.

Jun 8, 2016 | Full Review…

Sure the lighter moments far outweigh the darker, but it is that mixture that makes this show so compelling to watch.

Oct 13, 2015 | Full Review…

There's no reason to feel guilty about loving what you love, especially when what you love is as nuanced and complex as Jane the Virgin is every week. A charming and addictive delight.

Oct 13, 2015 | Full Review…

Looks like we're in for another crazy (but wonderful) season of Jane the Virgin.

Oct 13, 2015 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

The last thing I expected from The CW was to develop a seriously funny case of heroine addiction... much like my continuing crush on the delightful Jane the Virgin and its endearing mash-up of broad humor and romantic melodrama.

Oct 12, 2015 | Full Review…

Jane returns tonight in a Season 2 premiere that combines the outlandishness of its telenovela roots with the most educational treatment of breast-feeding I've seen on any TV show ever.

Audience Reviews for Jane the Virgin: Season 2

  • Nov 23, 2020
    Luisa has become a pill, and makes the show harder to watch. The writers missed a chance to kill the sin rostro story when it was at it's peak, now it's a nuisance.
  • Aug 03, 2020
    It is already a parody of itself. I am not sure what it is trying to be.
  • Aug 12, 2018
    yeah yeah great serie to pass the time BUT stop here if you don't want to get your heart mercilessly CRUSHED, you're welcome
  • Dec 17, 2017
    The movie would be more successful without Rodriquez as as Jane. She is a very talented actress, but she definitely a wrong chose for this character.
  • Jul 29, 2017
    Although the connections become a bit to complex along with the overkill ending it has better character development than the first season
  • Jun 01, 2017
    Just as amazing as the first season. Amazing characters and incredible plot.
  • May 28, 2017
    Was enjoying till I saw the that PC formula of having casted only white people stereotyped in the roles of bad or flakey people, and all the brown people as good, innocent, real, etc.. Hate the PC formulas--good, bad, and idiot come in all colors, so drop the agenda and cast them in all colors.
  • May 12, 2017
    Confermate la qualità della prima stagione: colpi di scena, esilaranti fantasie e svolte drammatiche non mancano. Alcuni episodi sono leggermente sottotono ma complessivamente la folle storia/telenovela di Jane continua a viaggiare spedita in bilico tra il verosimile e lo strampalato.
  • Aug 21, 2016
    Jane is a two-dimensional stereotype of a 'typical crazy woman' she is incredibly self-involved, I realize it's a show but she left her baby on his back so much that the doctor had to intervene, she was AWFUL to Rafael, that whole "YOU'RE A LIAR!!!!!!" When she knew. She was the one being told the information, she's a dick. And I'm pretty sure she's completely insane and I have no idea why all those people put up with it. Selfish, mean and so incredibly judgemental.
  • May 16, 2016
    After a near perfect 1st season it's very hard to top it and while Season 2 didn't top season 1 it's equally just as good focused on new character dynamics as well as some great personal journeys for the characters to undergo and continually shocks with insane twists that work perfectly but never takes itself too seriously which is why it still works just as great and the finale especially leaves me more hyped and anxious than Season 3 than ever. Overall Grade of the Season: A-
