It won’t be long until “Jane the Virgin” returns to The CW, and ahead of the third season of the Gina Rodriguez starrer, show creator Jennie Snyder Urman talked about Jane’s (Rodriguez) love life and whether or not she will lose her virginity this year.
In the season 2 finale, Jane and Michael (Brett Dier) got married in a fun ceremony, and the couple even had Bruno Mars as their wedding singer. But just as they were about to go on their honeymoon, Michael got shot by an unseen assailant, and it remains to be seen whether he survives the ordeal.
Urman told TVLine that the new season picks up right after Jane discovers that her husband has been shot.
“He’s in the hospital, and they’re trying to keep him alive,” said the show creator. In the episode, fans will also see how Michael and Jane’s relationship began and what happened to them after their first kiss.
While it appears that Jane’s past problems regarding Michael and Rafael (Justin Baldoni) are over, it looks like her love life will become even more complicated in season 3 with the arrival of someone from her past.
“You’ll meet someone from Jane’s past, before she met Michael,” Urman told Entertainment Weekly.
The show creator also confirmed that Jane will lose her virginity this season, but Urman kept mum about the person that Jane will get intimate with for the very first time.
“She does lose her virginity this year,” said Urman to EW. “It’s in the first half of the season, and it’s quite a big episode for us.” Regarding the pivotal moment, Urman said that they wanted to give “real expectations” and that she has been giving the scene a lot of thought.
As for the season’s celebrity guest stars, it has been confirmed that Hispanic superstars Gloria and Emilio Estefan will guest star in season 3. According to EW, the Estefans drop by on Rogelio’s (Jaime Camil) request for help as he tries to adapt a Latin telenovela for American audiences.
“Jane the Virgin” season 3 premieres Oct. 17 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
