MTV Renews Awkward for Season 2

AWKWARD-MTVWhat would you do if you went from nobody to notorious overnight? For most high school kids, this would be a dream come true, as being somebody, even someone feared, is better than being nobody, but Jenna Hamilton (Ashley Rickards) isn’t most high school students. After a series of unfortunate events leads her confined to a cast and having to meet with his guidance counselor Valerie (Desi Lydic), Jenna becomes “that girl”. Can she handle being on the map for once?

This is the premise to MTV’s Awkward, the latest entry into the pantheon of sarcasti-girl media, which the network picked up for a second season on Monday. The next 12 episodes of Awkward. are scheduled to air in early 2012, with a specific date to come (likely) late this year/early next. MTV has been making noise with its scripted content in the last year, recently canceling The Hard Times of RJ Berger, airing the controversial Skins remake, and bringing back classic cartoon Beavis & Butthead after a 14 year hiatus. Next up for the network is Death Valley, a horror-comedy set to debut August 29th at 10:30.

Updated: Awkward is now on a midseason hiatus, having finished up its first run of episodes on September 28

With seven episodes left, we’ve barely begun to scratch the surface of Sadie’s (Molly Tarlov) inevitable downfall, Tamara’s (Jillian Rose Reed) quest for popularity, and Ming’s (Jessica Lu) struggle to get out from under her mother’s thumb, but the more time we get to spend in Jenna Hamilton’s world the better.

Awkward airs Tuesday nights at 11:00 on MTV. The first four episodes of the series are currently available to watch on MTV’s website.

Have you been watching Awkward this season? Who do you think Jenna should choose: Matty (Beau Mirchoff) or Jake (Brett Davern)?

  • Dutch_Girl_20

    Definitely Jake! (: Matty does only want to have sex, and Jake likes to talk.
    Matty is hot, but you shouldn't only choose by the looks of someone =)

    • Jasmine

      i so agree with you!!!! If i could Marry Jake i Would <3 he is so perfectly cute !

    • Katy

      I agree with u =)

    • jen

      totally agree with you!!!exact words!matty and jenna, whenever they have intimate moments, they will always end up having sex, unlike Jake!:) Jake is always there for jenna, getting to know each other first, now that's a real relationship!:) matty is nice, but jake is way better!:)

    • janied

      matty does not only want to have sex, he really wanted to go to the formal with her, he just didnt want to hurt his best friends feelings! Shes also only settling with jake, she clearly feels much more strongly about Matty, shes just scared of getting hurt again.

    • noname

      Jakes hot too! Just Saying

      • ashley

        EXACTLY!!!!

  • courtneymariemartin

    matty. matty. matty. matty. matty. ♥

  • Katy

    I think Matty is a cool boy,but Jake is perfect ♥

  • Molly

    I feel bad for Matty, because I think he really is trying to open up to Jenna and he's really sweet and genuine around her…but I love the storyline between Jenna and Jake. They make each other laugh, and they have a great friendship first. Plus Jake's crush on Jenna is really cute, and they have so much chemistry together. The winter formal was amazing! Not sure how it's going to work out with all the secrets and miscommunications in the love triangle, but I really hope Jenna and Jake stay together

    • Rache

      Ditto.

    • savannah

      well no i dont think that he is stupid i like jake better

  • cassie

    MATTYYY

  • go matty!

  • cinthy

    I think matty figured out too late, she wanted something better for her and that was jake, so go jake

  • jane

    Gooo MATTY!! <3 jenna and you are so cute together :))

  • emily

    matty forever ♥

  • hannah

    does any one eles love matty and jake, i feel really bad for matty as near the end you coud see he really sared about her, but her aslo cared about what others thought. jake on the other hand is and goofball and really care about jenna and they do more talkin then jenna and matty do, but i still kindda want jenna and matty to be together.

  • Racheal

    Jake!!!! he is so much sweeter and loving and loyal than Matty. Also, he's not afraid to be with her, which is HUGE!

    • savannah

      i agree with u lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • SARAH

    IM DEFINENTLY FOR MATTY. HE BRINGS OUT A SIDE OF HER SHE NEVER LETS OUT. JAKE IS A GOOD BOY AND YES THEY HAVE ALOT IN COMMON BUT THEY ARE TOO MUCH ALIKE. THATS A BORING RELATIONSHIP…. OPPOSITES ATTRACT AND I THINK MATTY AND JENNA ARE BETTER TOGETHER, SHE BRING OUT HIS SENSITIVE SIDE AND HE BRING OUT HER WILD SIDE. WHAT THE HECK DOES JAKE BRING OUT, OKAY HE HOLDS HER HAND IN PUBLIC… AND? I PERSONALLY AM NOT A HAND HOLDING GIRL SO THAT REALLY ISNT MUCH.

  • Andrea

    It's like Matty is Edward and Jake is Jacob, too hard to choose…

    • Andrea

      No, no. It’s like Jake is Edward and Matty is Jacob, because in the end Edward is chosen.

  • Jahne

    matty was sercretive like he didnt want ppl to see jenna with him. And he didnt even want to be in a relationship. Jake is so much better for her, and there sooo cute together! Team Jake and Jenna all the way <3

  • savannah

    • susie

      <3

  • clair

    jake…. hes so much hotter and he really cares about jenna and they look so good together! i freaking love them <3

  • T

    I actually think Matty did a sweet thing, he really cares about his best friends feelings and that’s part of the reason he didn’t tell anyone, I’m all for MATTY!
