Justin Baldoni is taking on a new role on Jane The Virgin this week – Director!

The actor is taking over the reigns as they film the next new episode of the series.

“I think still feel like that 16 year old kid making music videos and turning in short films instead of book reports. So grateful for the opportunity to direct my first episode of #janethevirgin with people I love and respect so much. Here we go! (Pic taken by my TV ex wife/baby mamma @yaelgrobglas ),” he wrote on Instagram on Tuesday (February 13).

The week before, he shared that he’s excited and nervous to be taking on the task.

“Here we go! Directing an episode of #janethevirgin next week. Nervous, excited, but most of all grateful. It takes hundreds of bad ass and super skilled people working insane hours behind the scenes to make every episode as fun, magical and heartwarming as it is. Grateful for this group of humans who are working so hard to get me ready. Especially the guy in the middle.

Gina Rodriguez Says It Isn't Easy To Direct 'Jane The Virgin' - Here's Why

Gina Rodriguez is stepping behind the camera tonight for an all-new Jane The Virgin!

The actress and now director, opened up about taking on a new role on the series.

“[Jane] has opened doors for opportunities to create my own shows, to make new faces, to make more Latino and Latina faces, [to put] women in front of and behind the cameras, so Jane is kind of next level,” Gina shared with ET.

That being said though, directing this series isn’t an easy task for anyone.

“Our show is very hard to do,” Gina admits. “Our show is nothing to mess with, I mean the tone is specific.”

Jennie [Snyder-Urman, showrunner] is my muse, she’s my dream-maker and I’ll never be able to repay her, but I think by my actions I’ll be able to do that.”

Gina is already set to direct more episodes of Jane — so tune into her first TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

There's Another Character Death Coming On 'Jane The Virgin'

There's Another Character Death Coming On 'Jane The Virgin'

Not to alarm anyone or anything, but there’s another death on Jane The Virgin coming.

While we don’t know when it will happen, show creator Jennie Snyder Urman told Variety that fans will learn “very soon” who he or she will be.

“You’ll have some idea at the end of the next episode, but it will all be clear by the fall finale,” she teased.

We’re sorry, but we’re still NOT OVER Michael’s death, and now we have to deal with another? Nope. Not loving this!

One thing is for certain though, it won’t be Rafael.

During an interview with TV Guide, Justin Baldoni ruled out his character being killed off since Rafael still has another transformation coming.

“What I love about it is our creator is never going to abandon Rafael. He’s not going to stay a douche. I don’t believe that’s what they’re going for,” he shared. “I believe that Rafael is a story of redemption as well. He’s a man that, thanks to Jane, is seeing sides of himself that he’s never had a chance to see. He’s getting a chance to grow and step out of that toxic behavior and to become a much more heart-centered man, and that’s really who he is.”

TELL JJJ: Which character do you think will be dying?

Check out a sneak peek of tonight’s episode, airing @ 9PM ET/PT on the CW, below!

Gina Rodriguez Reveals How She Played A Hand in Getting Tyler Posey on 'Jane the Virgin'

Gina Rodriguez Reveals How She Played A Hand in Getting Tyler Posey on 'Jane the Virgin'

Gina Rodriguez and Tyler Posey are two of our favorite people, so it’s no wonder that they radiate on screen together.

And in fact, it was sort of Gina‘s idea to get Tyler on Jane The Virgin as Adam.

“I did the cover of Backstage magazine back in 2012 with Tyler before anything had really happened in my life, and he was already in like the third season in Teen Wolf,” Gina remembers to EW.

She continues, “I loved him so, so dearly that when [showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman] was introducing Adam, it was actually me and the costume designer that were walking across the studio and we were like, ‘Tyler would be unbelievable. He’s finishing Teen Wolf. He’s absolutely freaking adorable. He’s the coolest dude ever. He’s a great freaking actor.’ And it happened within like a day.”

Tyler and I had wanted to work together for forever and it was like done, done, done. And then it happened.”

However, it was almost the case that we’d have to say goodbye to him after only a few episodes.

“He is so in demand because he’s such a freaking love bug and he did a movie this summer and then he needed to do another movie and we thought we were going to lose him and I was devastated,” Gina says. “I was legitimately devastated.”

But it all worked out — “We didn’t lose him, so it was like the best thing in the world.”

Everyone can go flood Gina‘s social media with massive thank yous now.

Jane the Virgin airs TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Jane The Virgin's Yael Grobglas Was Completely Surprised That Petra Had A Twin

Jane The Virgin's Yael Grobglas Was Completely Surprised That Petra Had A Twin

Count Yael Grobglas as one of the countless many who was completely surprised and shocked to learn that Petra was a twin on Jane The Virgin!

The actress opened up to Coveteur about the reveal and how before that all happened, she thought she was being killed off.

“Anezka was a complete surprise,” Yael says. “I didn’t know she was going to have a twin sister show up. My go-to is I’m always thinking I’m getting killed off. Every show I’m on. [laughs].

“So when I saw an episode where I thought Petra was running away, which is the lead into Anezka showing up, I thought she was running away.”

Now that Anezka is there, Yael is secretly pitching the writers about having her tap dance in an episode.

“I’ve been actually trying to drop secret hints that I can tap-dance since season 2,” Yael dishes. “I’m just waiting for an episode with Anezka breaking out in some Irish tap.”

And yes, Yael can really tap dance: “I started dancing when I was two. I haven’t been doing it seriously since maybe I was 20, so it’s been a while. I mean, I’m not going to go on tour, but for an episode, I’m sure I could get my s*** together.”

Jane The Virgin airs Fridays @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

FYI: Yael is wearing Pollice Lee heels in the photo one.

Jane & Rafael Tackle Their Feelings About One Another Quickly on 'Jane The Virgin' Premiere Tonight

While we’ll always be Team Michael (miss you Brett Dier!), JJJ has to admit that there is something about Jane and Rafael that we just can’t ignore on Jane The Virgin.

And on tonight’s premiere of the CW series, the two will tackle their feelings straight on.

Showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman shared with EW, “You’re going to see Jane deciding what she should do about them. We don’t hold things in very long on our show, so Rafael learns about those feelings very quickly in the first episode.”

“A lot happens and evolves between the two of them and takes them into a very new place at the end of the first episode,” she adds. “They cross lines that they haven’t before in terms of their romantic and emotional lives.”

Jane the Virgin premieres TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Gina Rodriguez Calls Out Fans Who Are Complaining About the New Mateo For 'Jane The Virgin'

Gina Rodriguez Calls Out Fans Who Are Complaining About the New Mateo For 'Jane The Virgin'

Just before the weekend, Gina Rodriguez premiered the brand new poster for Jane The Virgin‘s season 4 — which debuted a brand new actor to play Mateo.

“This season is for my warriors,” she wrote on Instagram. “All the tears, the laughter, the love and the loss. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy making it. Love you all!”

Gina also added that she was excited to work with Elias, who plays the older Mateo: “He is pure love.”

However, some JtV fans aren’t happy about the casting change and decided to voice their opinions online with the #NotMyMateo — something that Gina caught onto quick and she’s not having it.

“He is 5 years old,” Gina wrote on Twitter today. “I’m going to need all y’all commenting on new Mateo to take one dirty second and realize you are insulting a 5 year old!”

YAS, GINA!

We get that some might not be happy about having a casting change on one of your favorite shows, but we also have to realize when it is a child, it’s inevitable. The writing may skip years, and kids grow up.

We’re sure Elias will be the best Mateo ever and you’ll love him just as much as the two previous actors.
