Season 3 of CW dramedy Jane the Virgin began airing October 17, 2016.[1]


Show creator Jennie Snyder Urman:

This next season will center around the idea of growing up — what it means, what it looks like, and what it costs. Also, we will find out who the father of Xo’s baby is and whether she will keep it. After having her own child, will Jane get a little brother or sister next?[2]

Season 3 also features a season-long arc featuring Jane’s adventures retracing her abuela Alba’s immigration journey—complete with ’70s-soundtrack-laden scenes and groovy fashions.[3] Plus guest appearances from none other than Gloria and Emilio Estefan!
