Jane the Virgin: Season 5 Reviews

March 5, 2020
Below the surface, Jane the Virgin is also bracingly realistic about parenthood, work-life balance, relationships, and, yes, sex. Tender, fun, and expertly plotted, it's perfect multi-generational viewing.
August 1, 2019
A fitting sendoff filled with unabashed emotion and romance that neatly tied up the loose ends with a big bright bow.

We leave the Villanuevas knowing they're headed into uncharted territory secure in themselves and in how much they care for one another. It's the heartfelt ending they deserve.

Let the record show that drama takes a back seat to wackiness and multiple shots of Jane Villanueva crying when the term "series finale" is attached to the episode.

It was satisfying and moving and I cried, and as a critic, it means so much to see a show land the creative plane this successfully. Jane has been a balm, and as much as it will be missed, what a beautiful sendoff.

If there's an easier show to love than "Jane the Virgin," I can't think of it.

It's a classic soap opera trope, but this is Jane The Virgin, so the amnesia is all the more tragic because the writing and performances so fully realize how this revelation changes relationships.

While the show is known for its signature twists, colorful narration, and imaginative use of graphics, Jane's monologue encapsulates why the show's merits run deeper than those surface quirks.

Yet as ridiculous as the show might seem, "Jane" is at its heart about very real human dilemmas regarding love and trust and family bonds.

It seems right to watch the show and be struck by the things in it, even in its most absurd telenovela turns, that feel like real life.
