Only two episodes into its first season, “Jane the Virgin” is already a hit.

The freshman series, which garnered some of the strongest reviews this fall, has gotten a full-season order by the CW. The network also ordered a full season of its other new show, “The Flash,” according to Deadline.

Both series are producing breakout stars, but none quite as big as “Jane"’s Gina Rodriguez, who has been getting a lot of buzz in recent weeks.

“We have had a fantastic start to our season this year, with ‘The Flash’ launching as our most-watched series premiere ever, and ‘Jane the Virgin’ recognized as the best new show this season by critics across the country,” said the CW president Mark Pedowitz.

For the other Latino-centered freshman shows of the season, “Cristela,” no word yet from ABC if it will be picked up for a full season.

Elsewhere, FX's border drama, “The Bridge,” was cancelled after two seasons.

According to Deadline, the series got off to a strong start in July 2013, but by the end of its first season it had already lost half of its audience. During the second season, it didn't improve either its ratings or critical reception significantly.

“The Bridge,” an adaptation of the Scandinavian series “Bron,” starred Diane Kruger as El Paso, Texas, police officer Sonya Cross and Damien Bichir as Marco Ruiz, her counterpart from the Chihuahua State Police, who team up on cross-border investigations.
