Season 4 of the CW dramedy Jane the Virgin premiered 13 October 2017 on The CW.[1]


Creator Jennie Snyder Urman on Season 4:

❝ When Jane sees Adam, you’re going to need to know what his backstory is, why she never thought she’d see him again, and why he was her first love. That’s going to take her on a real journey and obviously, there’s big history there. At the top of next season, Rafael’s lost all his money. He doesn’t have anything. His credit cards don’t work. And we have a villain rising in Luisa, whose heart is out for revenge. So everybody is grappling with their circumstances more than their romances. But it’s all going to play out in that first episode because we’ve already started working on it. ❞[2]
