5 Reasons to Get Involved with Jane the Virgin

The CW's hit new series has a lot to offer!

You might not think a show about a young woman who becomes, accidentally, artificially inseminated has the makings of a hit, but that’s just what the CW’s new series Jane The Virgin is – a must-see hit. It's about – as you might have guessed -- a virgin named Jane who goes in for a routine pap smear, but instead, is inseminated by an absent-minded OB/GYN. Let the shenanigans ensue in this Americanized telenovela.

The winter season finale airs tonight, but here are 5 great reasons to catch up on Jane the Virgin. 

5. If you are not already familiar with the world of telenovelas, you have been seriously missing out.

Historically popular in Latin and Asian television networks, Jane The Virgin is the first telenovela to hit a major American television network. Telenovelas combine heightened drama and humor with absurd plot twists. You’ll never see the plot coming, and that's what makes them so enticing to watch.



4. You will want Jamie Camil's character Rogelio De La Vega to be your new bestie.

Veteran actor Camil plays Rogelio, Jane's father, a Telenovela star on the series. It’s all very meta. Rogelio is a true narcissist, but some part of you will want to be his best friend. You will want to dislike him but it’s tough to do. His lack of self-awareness is so endearing and charming that you'll probably want a mini version of him to carry around with you everywhere you go so he can flash his corny pearly whites at you whenever you're having a bad day. Also, not only does Camil play a Telenovela star on the show, he is an actual Telenovela star in Mexico!



3. Diane Guerrero fromOrange Is the New Black has a recurring role.

Guerrero plays Jane's co-worker at the hotel that Jane's baby daddy donor (Rafael) owns. Her role got really juicy this fall when it was revealed that that she's been secretly dating Jane's boyfriend's brother -- a man with some sort of shady past.


2. There's a scandalous lesbian plot brewing.

The doctor who accidentally inseminates Jane is Rafael's (baby daddy donor) sister. She’s a lesbian involved in an affair with her father’s wife. So yes, she’s having a fling with her step mom! Escandalo!

1. The badass female trio.

The relationship between Jane, her mom, and her grandma, offers up some of the most darling dynamics of any on the series. The positive female bond amongst the generational women is lovely to watch as they support each other with laughter, love, and tears. Now grab your handkerchief and tune in!
