JANE THE VIRGIN left its fans with one heck of a cliffhanger.

After Jane spent all season pregnant, she gave birth to a beautiful baby boy…only to have him immediately get kidnapped.

“The second season is not the story of how they get the baby back; the baby comes back,” JANE THE VIRGIN creator Jennie Snyder Urman reassured.

I visited the Manhattan Beach (standing in for Miami) set of JANE THE VIRGIN earlier this week to sit down with the cast and find out all the juicy secrets about to unfold. Here is some of what I learned…
