Holland Roden (Sienna), Remy Hii (Luen), and Hunter Parrish (Felix) join the cast of the Jane The Virgin spin-off, Jane The Novela.

The Jane The Virgin spin-off pilot has added Holland Roden to its growing cast. Roden, who played Lydia on Teen Wolf, joins Jacqueline Grace Lopez, Hunter Parrish (17 Again), Remy Hii (Marco Polo), and Ivonne Coll in Jane The Novela.

Holland Roden will be playing Sienna Zelliger, who she describes as an "environmentalist, elder advocate, and cheese lover."

Holland shared the exciting news with her 4.5 million Instagram followers.

Hunter Parrish and Remy Hii play Felix and Luen, respectively.

Season one of Jane The Novela follows Estela Lopez (Jacqueline Grace Lopez), an art curator who is torn between two men, Luen and Felix. Like Jane Villanueva, Estela's love interests are drastically different from each other. One comes from a wealthy family, while the other is from humble beginnings.

Jane The Novela will be an anthology series that tells a different story each season. JTN will be narrated by Gina Rodriguez's character Jane, who has "written" the stories that will be portrayed each season.

Holland's character, Sienna Zelliger, is the sister of Felix. Sienna comes from a wealthy family but is still committed to the environment. Felix and Sienna's family own the Napa Valley winery where season one is set.

Sienna and Felix's mother will be played by Marcia Cross (Desperate Housewives).


Jane The Virgin fans will also be pleased to know that Ivonne Coll (who plays Jane's grandmother Alba) will be a series regular on the spin-off, per reporting from Deadline.

It's all coming together now. Jane The Novela is certain to ease the pain of saying goodbye to Jane The Virgin after its fifth and final season, which premieres March 27.
