The series was to be an anthology, with each season based on Jane the Virgin's titular character's novel series, with Gina Rodriguez attached to narrate.
But CW boss Mark Pedowitz has now opened up about the decision to not go forward with the series.
“We are big fans of Jennie Urman and Gina and we had great appreciation of what they did," he said during a conference call ahead of the network's upfronts presentation.
