MTV Renews Awkward. for Season 2

Get More: News, Renewals

Hapless high schooler Jenna Hamilton may have just experienced her first good break: MTV has renewed its freshman hit, Awkward., for a second season.

Barely a month into its debut season — and with seven episodes still left to air! — the quirky teen comedy is set to return for more high school awkwardness come 2012.

Awkward. has really resonated with our young audience marking yet another successful push into scripted programming and the further diversification of our schedule,” MTV head of programming David Janollari says in a statement. “[Creator] Lauren Iungerich has created a truly unique, contemporary young female voice, brought to life by the show’s incredibly talented cast.”

Awkward.’s pickup comes on the heels of the cabler’s cancellation of sophomore series The Hard Times of R.J. Berger and second season order for the supernatural thriller Teen Wolf.

  • Its a shame that they will not bring out season 2 until 2012! That’s another 2-3 months away, MTV will have to do alot of advertising to bring back the old crowd aswell as new!

  • I don’t think Awkward is terribly bad but for god sake why did they cancel frigging RJ Berger for this, it’s just madness and incredibly stupid. But didn’t except anything else from MTV, they cancel most of their best shows after 1 season.

  • Im in LOVE with this show!!! An I can’t wait that long to come back on!!!:(

  • Does anybody know certain date when it will come back on? I think the mother did the letter because she’s just obsessed with high school still and made mistakes in hers and is giving Jenna tough love to help her live her high school years to the fullest and not regret how her high school years went like her moms. I can’t wait till season 2 though i hope she gets back with matty because in every relationship people make mistakes and at least he has realized his and is trying now besides her heart belongs to him.

  • I am excited for the second season! :) I can’t wait to see what Jenna says to her mom about that letter! And I am so glad her and Matty didn’t end up together because he put her through too much.

  • I for one am gld that jenna chose jake over matty…..with jake she doesnt have to pretend to be someone shes not….she doesnt have to lie to anyone if they start dating and jake likes her the way she is ii hope jenna can really get to open up her heart to jake i had to deal with my own matty and jake and i choose my jake over my matty any day because the humiliation, denile, and secrecy isnt worth waiting for the day he realizes what he had. good for you jenna

  • Yay!!! New season!!! I absolutely can not wait, I love this show so much!!! The cliffhanger at the end of season 1 was just to much to bear!! Hoping there won’t be such a gap between seasons 2 and 3 as there is between 1 and 2 – this wait is so irritating!!
