Here is another reason to be excited for Jane the Virgin season 5 when it premieres later this year: Sophia Bush will appear!
In a post on Instagram, the former Chicago PD star herself confirmed that she will be stopping by for at least one episode on the Gina Rodriguez series … though there aren’t too many details available about her role. This is a major get for the final season of Jane the Virgin, which has had a rather impressive array of guest stars over time including Britney Spears and Gloria Estefan. While it may not have ever been much of a ratings titan during its run, it didn’t really need to be. It had quality on its side and that led to a whole flurry of known names signing on and wanting to contribute something to the story.
Bush’s television appearances have been reasonably limited since departing Chicago PD — an experience that she described as miserable for her by the end of its run. She appeared in an episode of the short-lived comedy Alex, Inc. last year, and now has a new potential project in development over at CBS in Surveillance. Hopefully, we will learn a little bit more about its status later this year; it could end up leading to a full-time return to TV for the actress.
For now though, we’re glad to see Sophia back on TV with a role that could prove to be plenty of fun — she also certainly has a history with The CW that dates all the way back to her time on One Tree Hill.

When one of your favorite ladies calls you and says “will you come play in an episode for my last season!?” AND that means you also get to play with one of your favorite dudes!? Whelp. You say YES! What a dream come true. Beyond thrilled to be making some comedy alongside two of my favorite world-changers #laughsfordays ♥️ Repost @justinbaldoni ・・・ This is a man who is very grateful to be between two women who are literally changing the game. How cool that I get to work with amazing humans like this!? I’ve realized that there’s something about being in the presence of powerful women that actually grounds and calms me. (I mean look at who I married @emilybaldoni 😜💪🏼❤️) I’m so grateful that the supremely talented, kind-hearted and bad*** feminist- social justice warrior @sophiabush who I LOOOVE and adore came to play with us on @cwjanethevirgin this week. I can’t tell you who she is playing except that some of you may not be happy about it 😜#canttellyou #sorrynotsorry #thefinalseason #march27
