MTV Renews Awkward for Season 4

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.

  1. 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.

  2. Ames says:

    yea!! love Jenna and co. This is such a great little show.

  3. iMember says:

    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

  4. Josh says:

    Yikes….talk about a step down. Not excited :(…The replacing the show’s headwriter with soap opera people…This show was a dark dramaedy…I just don’t see the new showrunners getting that.

  5. Joey says:

    Happy the show got renewed for season 4.

  6. Omar says:

  7. Sokratis says:

    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.

  8. Bryce says:

    90210 people? Yuck

  9. Amz says:

    This is one of those shows that I don’t care who’s running it.. as long as it keeps going.

  10. Whoa Now... says:

    90210?!?!?! Cashmere Mafia?!?!? This show is going down in flames. I’m so bum.

  11. Ella says:

    Great news but 90210 and Cashmere Mafia were both AWFUL shows.

  12. yogabagaba says:

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

  19. 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!
