Jane the Virgin: Who's Joining the Spinoff?

at .

Jane the Virgin may be wrapping up its story in a neat little bow by the end of the year, but at least there's a spinoff in the works. 

Thankfully, a familiar face from the regular series is attached to co-star on the potential new series titled Jane the Novella. 

Ivonne Coll Attends Event

Deadline has revealed that Ivonne Coll, who plays Jane's grandma, Alba, on the soapy CW drama will take on the role of a brand new character on the spinoff. 

Her character will be called Camila, the adoptive mother of Estela, the character the new show will revolve around for its first season if it gets a series order.

As previously reported, the new series will be an anthology with each season being based on a different fictional novel written by Jane Villanueva aka the lead character of Jane the Virgin. 

It's a convincing hook, and the show will benefit from Gina Rodriguez narrating the whole thing.

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

East Los High's Jacqueline Grace Lopez will lead the cast as Estela, while Remy Hii (Marco Polo) will appear Estela’s boyfriend Luen, the head of security at a winery run by Felix (Played by Weeds‘ Hunter Parrish).

Holland Roden (Teen Wolf) has also been added to the cast as Felix’s sister, while Benito Martinez (13 Reasons Why) is on board as a winery employee who specializes in collecting dirt on everyone.

Jane the Novella joins Batwoman, Nancy Drew, The Lost Boys, Katy Keene, and Glamorous as the pilot orders for The CW.

Batwoman is already considered a lock after a highly praised entrance for the character on The CW's DC TV 2018 crossover, and with Arrow ending, it looks like Batwoman could be on tap to take over for that show in early 2020. 

Fans of Jane the Virgin can catch the final season when it debuts March 27.

Jane the Virgin Quotes

In English, in honor of today, I am overwhelmed by the love and support in this room. As I studied for my citizenship exam, I learned about 'E pluribus unum," "out of many, one." It is said that it originated by the famous Roman writer Cicero about family and friends. When each person loves the other, as much as herself, it makes one out of many. And as I look around this room, I understand what he meant. Out of many, one. You are all part of my journey. I spent so many years, worrying about being separated from all of you. And I am so grateful that I will never have to worry about that again.


Jane: Who knew there was this crazy business helping people with their college essays? Are you kidding me? That's like a fun Saturday.
Narrator: Only for you Jane. Only for you.
