‘Jane the Virgin’ is back on Romedy Now with season 2

MUMBAI: ‘Jane the Virgin’, the award-winning American romantic comedy-drama series, is back with its Season 2 on Romedy Now.

The channel will air the series from 21 July at 7 pm, Monday to Friday.

Jane the Virgin1Romedy Now is the first channel to bring this award-winning English series to India in a one hour comedy-drama format.

While Season 1 was exalted and critically acclaimed, Season 2 delves deeper into the emotions and complicated relationships of the protagonist, and promises a series of dramatic twists and turns that is expected to enthrall the audience.
