Want to know what’s coming on Jane the Virgin season 5 next week? It’s far from your ordinary episode; it’s the finale! Not only is this the end of the season; it’s the end of the series as a whole. It’s going to be an emotional, heartbreaking hour of television with a lot of twists and turns along the way. It’s going to maintain a certain element of the show’s DNA while, at the same time, bringing something new.
Let’s put it this way — now is not the time to include some sort of big cliffhanger. This is an opportunity to tie things together and make viewers feel like everything has been worth it. A spin-off series down the road is always possible, but you definitely don’t want to rely on anything like that. You want to just be able to tell a great story that is fitting of the wonderful run that this show has had. Think about how few series get to five seasons these days! It’s not many of them and Jane the Virgin owes a lot to their fans for sticking with them every step of the way. Remember that when this show premiered, it was an atypical series on The CW, one featuring a cast of less-than-familiar faces and one that relied more on humor than supernatural creatures or superheroes.
Below, CarterMatt offers the Jane the Virgin series finale synopsis with some more information on what’s ahead:
SERIES FINALE – With Jane (Gina Rodriguez) and Rafael (Justin Baldoni) finally getting ready for their big day, Rafael’s desire to help Jane’s writing dream lands him in trouble. Xo (Andrea Navedo) and Rogelio (Jaime Camil) must tell the family about their decision and not everyone takes it well. Meanwhile, Petra (Yael Grobglas) struggles with her emotions. Ivonne Coll also stars. Brad Silberling directed the episode written by Jennie Snyder Urman (#519). Original airdate 7/31/2019.
Here’s a quick reminder that prior to watch the series finale, tune in at 8:00 p.m. Eastern for a retrospective that is going to look back on some of what you’ve seen with cast interviews in tow. (Note that this is being counted as a chapter in the story, leading to the series finale having the title of “Chapter One Hundred.”)
