Jane the Virgin, an adaptation of a telenovela but itself just incorporating elements of the genre, employs a number of storytelling gags and references to real telenovelas.
Jane's story is told through a specific theme for each season:
- Season 1 is the story of Jane's journey from accidental insemination to childbirth
- Season 2 is Jane's discovery of motherhood and how it informs her identity
- Season 3 is the journey of growing up and what that costs
- Season 4
The story itself is told like a book with chapters, which are added into parts of Jane's story. So far, it goes as following:
- PART 1 – Chapter One to Chapter Twenty-Two
- PART 2 – Chapter Twenty-Three to Chapter Fifty-Four
- PART 3 – Chapter Fifty-Five to *Series Finale*
Part 3 is the last part of the story
