Get More: Renewals

Awkward Ashley RickardsLooks like MTV is not growing out of its Awkward phase.

The network has renewed the acclaimed series for a fourth season, with one significant change: Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler (90210, Cashmere Mafia) are stepping in as new showrunners, replacing series creator Lauren Iungerich, who exited at the end of June. The news was first reported by Deadline.

  • Thrilled about the renewal. And whatever production changes need to happen behind-the-scenes…I’m ok as long as the quirky fun of the show is maintained and evolved.

  • Yayayayay!! I can’t wait to see the second half of season three.

    It’s always nice when you’re watching a show and you don’t have to worry about its being renewed/cancelled. Although, it was very clear MTV was going to renew Awkward. <333

  • So didnt see that one coming. Glad to hear that finally a good show got a renewal, particularly one that is going through a slightly – for lack of a better word ‘awkward’ phase of storylines.

  • I loved the way season 3 ended, so real that things get so twisted. I hope the new writers will be able to deliver.

  • Howdy! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My website looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.

    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to
    correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.

    Thank you!
