Speaking of Season 3, showrunner Aline Brosh McKenna told TV Line, “in a time of crisis here, a new persona leaps into her [Rebbeca] mind, and it’s the scorned woman [in Season 3 of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend]. We’ll see how consistently she follows through on that, and how her feelings evolve as she recovers from this big rupture.”

In Jane the Virgin Season 3 finale, Tyler Posey was introduced as Jane Villanueva’s (Gina Rodriguez) mysterious first boyfriend, Adam. The new season will provide a backdrop and reveal more details about their relationship. Jane the Virgin Season 4 will pick up right where it left off in Season 3.
