Tv Season Info

Jane Villanueva (Gina Rodriguez) does a lot of growing up in the third season of this drama-comedy, both through the circumstances she finds herself in and through retracing Alba's (Ivonne Coll) roots. A cousin Jane has never met turns up out of the blue, but she may not be as trustworthy as Jane would like to believe. After being shot on his and Jane's wedding night, Michael (Brett Dier) has a long road to recovery and must face the fact that he might never fully recover. Rafael (Justin Baldoni) learns a family secret that will completely change his life and Anezka (Yael Grobglas) does her best to impersonate Petra (Yael Grobglas), while also ensuring she remains paralyzed. Rogelio (Jaime Camil) is determined to break into American television and finds an unlikely partner to help him achieve his goal. Ricardo Chavira and Justina Machado join the cast, plus Gloria and Emilio Estefan make an appearance.

Critic Reviews for Jane the Virgin Season 3

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

For the show, this meant a clunkier mix of telenovela drama, magical realism, and slapstick comedy. But it also meant a more nuanced, less sanitized treatment of its central character.

Jane The Virgin has allowed me to see all issues that affect my life and has given me a unique, entertaining world at the same time.

She's for sure earned some happiness, even if it won't last too long-as our narrator likes to remind us, 'this is a telenovela after all.'

As much as I want to see Rafael ride off into the sunset with Petra, I understand and can see why so many people want Jane and Rafael to work out. There is a genuine love between them.

Oct 20, 2017 | Full Review…

As frustrating as it is, teasing a Jane/Rafael reunion is the right move -- it's still too soon real time-wise for it to happen, and it's so much more satisfying when a bunch of annoying obstacles get in the way.

Jane's not the only one who is a little emotional. How many of you miss Brett Dier? WE LOVE YOU, MICHAEL!

Oct 20, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

One of the most intelligent things about this series is how it plays with the ideas of destiny and choice to inform its romantic entanglements. Life isn't a fairy tale.

Oct 20, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Since premiering three years ago, Jane has established itself as the most consistently heartwarming (and occasionally heartbreaking) show currently on TV.

Oct 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Love or hate Petra, it's hard to deny her character growth. While it's easy and justified to like the idealistic Jane, I believe Petra deserves more credit than she receives. She may be unlikable, but at least she's real.

Oct 20, 2017 | Full Review…

It is obvious the writers of the show have a plan for the future reveals of Jane's life.

    Part of Season 3, Episode 17 was about Alba's regret about not speaking up to the lady who said, "This is America. You should learn to speak English". Alba regretted not having spoken up to the comment because, as was mention in the show, this is America and what makes this country great is the diversity. This confuses me since the Spanish speakers, like Alba herself, don't care about diversifying and speaking English. They want everyone in the United States to conform to their language and speak Spanish but they don't want to speak the official language of the country to which they immigrated! I am an immigrant myself. My family immigrated to the states LEGALLY. And I love the US for all the opportunities my family has been afforded here in this wonderful country. Therefore, it is important for others who came to the US for the same opportunities to respect certain traditions and the language of this country. If the Latino community wants diversity because they think that's what makes this country great, they should start looking within themselves first and diversify themselves and NOT expect everyone else to change to make things easier for the lazy Spanish speakers who refuse to speak the official language of the country they live in! My mother tongue is Armenian, but I don't expect everyone and every organization in America to make accommodations for my people. We all know English is the language of the US and we need to respect that and unite with every other culture living in the US through the common language of the land. If my people only spoke Armenian and Latino people only spoke Spanish, there would be segragation, NOT unity and diversification as one great country. I'm not saying give up your culture becuase I would never give up my culture, but DO NOT impose it on others!!!!!! Learn the official language of the land you choose to live in and be respectful of others instead of forcing your language onto non-Spanish speakers. Also, it is not right to make it seem like illegal immigration is OK!!!! Breaking the law of a country to get your way is never OK. If my family was able to work hard to get to the US legally, pay a great deal of money, which they had to be borrowed because we weren't wealthy coming from the Soviet Union, then others can too. And it was very tawdry to claim that the election had Russian intervention. Nothing of the sort has been shown or proven. I don't identify with any specific political party. My family didn't like living under Soviet rule and I don't side with President Trump or Clinton. However, I believe in fairness and I know right from wrong, and it is absolutely not right to bad-mouth certain politicians on the show if you don't side with them. Frankly, it's crass to cry about not getting your way in the election on a TV show! I expected more professionalism on this show based on the first 2 Seasons, but after the 3rd they lost me, and I'm sure others, as an audience.
