Season 5 will be the final one for 'Jane The Virgin' fans and Dorfman is headed to town with a fascinating character arc.

13 Reasons Why's Tommy Dorfman will appear in the fifth and final season of Jane The Virgin, according to The Wrap.

Dorfman, who also has a recurring role in the upcoming Lifetime drama, American Princess, will play a character named "Bobby" in Jane The Virgin.

Bobby is, reportedly, an associate of Sin Rostro, a Jane The Virgin antagonist since season 1. Tommy Dorfman's Jane arc will involve his character heading to Miami, presumably to stir up trouble for our protagonist and her family.

Spoilers ahead.

Season 5 will be a big one for Jane, Rafael, and Michael Cordero (who "returned" from the "dead" at the end of season 4).

The show's three-time Golden Globe nominated lead, Gina Rodriguez, will also likely direct this season. Earlier this year, the star said she hoped to "do more" directing in final season of Jane The Virgin.

While there is no current air date for Jane The Virgin season 5, the hit CW programme is expected to return January 2019, in the mid-season. Jane will end on its 100th episode.
