Tv Season Info

It's been quite a year (or three) for Jane Villanueva (Gina Rodriguez). Although she got married, her husband Michael (Bret Dier) was shot on their wedding night! But luckily, he lived to tell the tale. And then, at long last... Jane had sex. That's right, friends, she's Jane The Virgin no more! And let me tell you, married life was everything she had hoped for... until the worst thing ever happened and Michael died from complications from his injury. I know. It was a heartbreaker.

Critic Reviews for Jane the Virgin Season 4

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (5)

With the knowledge that Michael might someday lose his memories of Jane is somehow just as sad as watching it with the knowledge that he dies. And that, not the shock value, is what makes this twist perfect for Jane the Virgin.

Aug 1, 2019 | Full Review…

One of the striking things about Jane the Virgin is that it is never truly ironic, let alone condescending to its source material. It is a deeply heartfelt production, sweet without being saccharine

Mar 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Jane the Virgin has always had a knack for wringing our hearts out like old rags (sometimes in a good way), but the Season 4 finale ended with a special kind of torture.

Aug 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Even though I was initially Team Michael, I think the writers did a fantastic job of giving her space to grieve Michael, move on organically, and then rebuild her connection with Rafael.

Aug 1, 2019 | Full Review…

I think Jane's choice will make for realistic storytelling going forward considering she is likely just as lost as I am when it comes to choosing the right man. They are both so darn likable.

Aug 1, 2019 | Full Review…

No matter what, I trust that Urman will deliver a story that's emotionally honest, that feels true to the characters, and that feels right.

Aug 1, 2019 | Full Review…

This show is filmed like a romance novel, and everything that goes along with that, the sweeping scores and the smooch smooch smooching, and the cuddles and nuzzling and all that glory.

Jun 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The show [takes] a step back to remember that it doesn't need to be an endless maze of mythology to be truly great.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

No, the Gina Rodriguez-led dramedy has been dealing with family tragedy, the many layers of the Latinx identity, and the messy inner lives of women better than nearly anything else on TV since the very beginning.

Mar 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Jane is, in its fourth season, brighter and warmer and more devastatingly funny than ever: If it's not the best show on television right now, then it is, at the very least, the most joyful.

Dec 7, 2017 | Full Review…

While Jane has gone through a lot of life experiences, seeing her joy and happiness over finally becoming a published "freaking" author in Friday night's latest episode certainly was a highlight.

Nov 20, 2017 | Full Review…

There is so much joy to be gleaned from Jane the Virgin that has nothing to do with who Jane is or isn't dating.

Audience Reviews for Jane the Virgin: Season 4

  • Aug 03, 2020
    It really is what it seeks to parody.
  • Jun 08, 2018
    It is so well put together I love it so much. But having finished it I'm mad as to be expected. How dare they! ARGHHHH I should have known with that lead up!! Arghhhhh!!!! Haven't cared for the lesbian thing, but I guess I've become desensitized to it? Which isn't good... Alba should spank Mateo, don't agree but I can respect that parental choice, while not caring for the negative way it portrays it in the show.

    (NOT ONLY A REVIEW FOR SEASON 4) A few short months ago, I decided to watch the pilot of Jane The Virgin -- not knowing that it would soon become my favorite show on the CW. It's packed with thrilling and riveting drama, emotional and heartwarming family moments, wonderful performances, and a fabulous, diverse group of characters that all contribute to the show's unique plot. Jane The Virgin has never been afraid to address controversial topics, including politics and illegal immigration, which is something that I've always enjoyed. There have been a few seasons that have been weaker than others, such as when season 3's crime storyline started to become a little cliche or when season 2's ending was not as happy as it could have been, but it's always bounced back in one way or another. Gina Rodriguez's performance as Jane is powerful and charming, as is Justin Baldoni's performance as Rafael. The fourth season explored an edgy new territory that tackles some of the world's most relevant issues with power and witty writing and a few interesting, shocking twists. Overall; Jane The Virgin is a hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking telenovela with thrilling plot lines and great characters that always leaves me either laughing, crying, or cheering. - 100%

    THIS IS MY FAVORITE SEASONS SO FAR!! Loving the relationship between Petra and Jane Ramos, and Jane has grown so much
  • Mar 02, 2018
    Good plot and characters. I became addicted after the second episode.
  • Feb 09, 2018
    Here's the thing, this show was good for the first 10 episodes. Then, the next 10 basically repeat the first ten. This whole show is Jane choosing between Rafeal and MIcheal. JUST PICK ONE!!!
  • Feb 09, 2018
    LOVE LOVE LOVE this show!
  • Jan 26, 2018
    love this show ! deserves more score than given by audience
  • Jan 07, 2018
    Easily the worst season of the show. It feels as though the show creators fear cancellation and are trying to force relationships and storylines that don’t work. It’s a shame because the first season was so groundbreaking. But it has just never reached level again. And by the looks of it, won’t.

    I am addicted to this show! Jane, Xo and Alba are such amazing, complex female characters. Gina Rodriguez is so amazing, I could watch her paint a wall and be entertained. I want to see her in more shows and films! She is a legend! More please!
