MTV Renews 'Awkward' for Season 2


MTV Renews 'Awkward' for Season 2


The network picks up 12 episodes for the upcoming season which will debut in 2012.

As it was anticipated, MTV officially renewed comedy series "Awkward" for season 2. The network has ordered 12 episodes for the new chapter which is slated to debut in early 2012. "We love the show and Awkward's comedic voice really shines through in such a brilliant way in these episodes," MTV head of programming David Janollari gushed about the show.

The news comes on the heels of a high rating for the teen series. It drew 1.9 million viewers on Tuesday, August 9, up from the 1.7 million who tuned in the July 19 series premiere. Last week's episode also drew 2.0 rating, up 21 percent from the week before.

"Awkward" is created by Lauren Iungerich, whom Janollari praised for her voice which is "incredibly resonant" with MTV's core young audience. The network will also produce a new pilot from Iungerich titled "Dumb Girls".

Starring Ashley Rickards as main character Jenna Hamilton, "Awkward" airs every Tuesday at 11 P.M. There are seven episodes left from the first season.

MTV has previously renewed another freshman "Teen Wolf", but decided not to move forward with its sophomore "The Hard Times of Rj Berger".

    I hope Jenna & matty get back together. I would be so devastated if they don't. She made a harsh decision choosing jake out of anger towards matty. Jenna hopped from 1 guy to another. What she & matty had was special. Matty was just breaking out of his shell about bringing Jenna out in the open but Jenna just got impatient. Such tragedy.
