Gina Rodriguez, star and executive producer of Jane the Virgin, has hinted that the dramedy will likely end after the fifth season.

During the Women To Watch day of panels from Create & Cultivate and Fossil in Austin, Texas, Rodriguez discussed directing, which she tried her hand at in a pivotal season four episode, saying, "When it came to directing Jane, as the star of the show as a woman, as Latina, I was like, 'I need to come so correct that I cannot be denied.'"

After calling it "the most incredible experience," Rodriguez said that her episode happened to be "the highest-rated of the season" and she has plans to "do more (directing) next year in our final season."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the CW has not yet made any official announcements or pick-ups for returning shows next season.

Rodriguez is also developing a female-driven drama entitled Femme and a dramedy about an undocumented immigrant called Illegal.
