As for Felix’s mother, Renata, who co-owns a winery with her son, the producers have tapped Desperate Housewives alum Marcia Cross, whose mere presence will undoubtedly bring a delicious dose of drama.
Jane the Virgin fans will see at least one familiar face in the spinoff. Ivonne Coll, who plays grandmother Alba in the original series, will now portray Camila, Estela’s adoptive mother.
When asked if other alums will pop up in the anthology series, showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman said, “Probably not the first year. Once we get a year where we establish new characters, then we can see what comes… I love [the Jane the Virgin] cast. I’d be lucky to work with every single one of them again and I really hope to.”
