TVLine Items: Jane Star Visits Crazy Ex, The Flash Casts Magenta and More

Yael Grobglas Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

The CW is staging a rare non-superhero crossover — sort of.

Jane the Virgin’s Yael Grobglas will guest-star on Season 2 of fellow CW dramedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, though she won’t be playing either Petra or her twin sister Anezka.

Grobglas instead will appear in Episode 4 as Trina, a dynamic businesswoman who hires Rebecca to represent her — and then sets the lawyer’s life on a surprising new course, EW.com reports.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 2 premieres Friday, Oct. 21 at 9/8c.
