Even V.I.L.E.’s enemy organization A.C.M.E. (Agency to Classify and Monitor Evildoers) does not truly understand Carmen’s intentions and makes mistaken assumptions about her.
2. Big Mouth (2017-)

‘Jane the Virgin‘ is a satirical romantic dramedy on The CW. The show stars Gina Rodriguez as the heroine, in the role of Jane Gloriana Villanueva.

However, her life witnesses a sudden upheaval when a doctor makes a mistake and artificially inseminates her. To make matters worse, it turns out that the biological father is a married man, former playboy and cancer survivor who also happens to be the owner of the hotel where Jane works. Even more complicating is the fact that Jane used to have a crush on this man. However, as the story progresses, Jane is seen having to balance between being a mother and being romantically involved with a detective. Having faced the hurdle of pregnancy, Jane now has to deal with the child growing up and her writing career moving forward. The fifth and final season of ‘Jane the Virgin’ is slated to air on March 27, 2019, and considering this is the role that won Rodriguez her Golden Globe Award in 2015, we can be reasonably sure she will amaze us in the final season as well.
