Michael is Going To Turn Jane's Life Upside Down on 'Jane The Virgin'

Michael is Going To Turn Jane's Life Upside Down on 'Jane The Virgin'

Tonight’s the premiere of the final season of Jane the Virgin and we’re about to get all our answers about the return of Michael answered.

Showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman chatted with TV Guide about the comeback of the character, played by Brett Dier, into Jane’s (Gina Rodriguez) life.

“His return just turns [Jane’s] life upside down in every single way,” she shared. “The events of the finale and that last image of this person…is ostensibly Michael—you will find out right away if it is or isn’t Michael, and it throws everything into flux, every character into flux.”

She adds, “It affects the whole season. It really sets us up on our arc for the season.”

How does that change Jane and Rafael’s (Justin Baldoni) relationship, if at all?

“What I can say is that the selfless act of Rafael bringing Michael back, hearing that Michael is alive and bringing him back to her, is a sacrifice and a move that I don’t think Season 1 Rafael would have done.”

Jennie continues, “The selflessness of it is romantic for Jane. But the events of the finale resonate throughout this whole [season].”

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

'Jane The Virgin' Showrunner Shares That Fans Will See Callbacks To The Pilot in New Season

'Jane The Virgin' Showrunner Shares That Fans Will See Callbacks To The Pilot in New Season

Jane The Virgin‘s final season is back tomorrow and showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman is dishing all about the easter eggs fans might see in the new episodes.

Talking during the show’s Paleyfest event, she shared that there would be callbacks to the pilot.

“There are a lot of echoes of the pilot in this first script, and that’s going to be something that we’re continuing through the season,” she shared. “…seeing how people have evolved and how you can be in a similar situation but everything is different about it now, and how five years have changed us.”

Jennie also spoke to TV Guide about why the fifth season was the best time to end the show.

“I just felt like I always have to think about the seasons and just how much story I really have in terms of Jane’s journey. I just really didn’t want to be spinning wheels. And I didn’t want to be repeating the same mistakes that the characters make because then you start to feel like, ‘Come on! Pull it together.’”

She continued, “When I really think about it, I have to think about the spine of the season, one whole story to be told, and I felt like [Season] 5 was about as much as I [could] do without it starting to get repetitive, without characters starting to take steps backwards in ways that maybe wouldn’t be organic. And also, just how much juice I think we had in the central stories before we got to a natural ending.”

Jane The Virgin will premiere March 26th @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

New 'Jane The Virgin' Final Season Promo Sees Everyone Reacting To Michael's Return Just Like Fans Did

New 'Jane The Virgin' Final Season Promo Sees Everyone Reacting To Michael's Return Just Like Fans Did

When Michael popped up in the final moments of the season four finale of Jane The Virgin – social media definitely had some thoughts about it – just like the characters are having in the very first promo for the final season.

Jane does a double take, Rogelio faints, and Petra just can’t seem to find the right words to say hi.

Showrunner Jennie Snyder-Urman revealed that Michael is really Michael, and not a long-lost twin at all, in a recent interview.

“It’s suspicion meets with shock meets with the place Michael is currently in…It’s a few things working together that will cause a lot of the drama when we come back,” she said.

The new season will maybe bring a Secret Life of the American Teenager situation too – with Jane choosing herself over Michael or Rafael.

Jane The Virgin premieres on March 27th on The CW.

Gina Rodriguez Dishes On 'Jane The Virgin' Spin-off

Gina Rodriguez wears a vintage inspired green dress for the Jane the Virgin panel during the 2019 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour at The Langham Huntington Hotel on Thursday (January 31) in Pasadena, Calif.

The actress and producer, along with showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman, opened up about the recently announced spin-off of the show.

Titled Jane the Novela, the new series was described as a telenovela anthology series where each season is based on a different fictional novel “written by” Jane Villanueva (Rodriguez) and narrated by the author herself.

The first installment takes place at a Napa Valley Vineyard, where family secrets (and family members) don’t stay buried for long.

While fans are excited for the spin-off, don’t expect to see your fave Jane the Virgin characters in the first season.

“Once we get a year where we establish new characters, then we can see what comes… I love [the Jane the Virgin] cast I’d be lucky to work with every single one of them again and I really hope to,” Jennie shared.

Gina added that the spin-off is “fantastic. The pilot is unbelievable. We hope we can give something just as great as we did with Jane the Virgin.”
