It´s TCA Press Tours week, so I will be expecting several pieces of info for the lists of cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012. This one, from MTV, renewing Awkward for season three. And I have to say, this one not only is not surprising, but it is also coming while the show is hitting a stride creatively. Having had a good first season, this sophomore run is proving to be better, therefore MTV renewing Awkward for season three is a good move.
And not only that, but season three renewal order for Awkward is supersizing the show to come, boosting its episode count by twenty more eps.
“Lauren Iungerich’s creative vision, coupled with this extraordinarily talented cast, make ‘Awkward’ the perfect series for MTV,” said David Janollari, Head of MTV Programming. “Critics and our audience alike have fallen in love with ‘Awkward,’ and we’re thrilled to bring this terrific series back for a third, supersized season.”
Ashley Rickards, who stars as “Jenna Hamilton,” received a nomination for a Critics Choice Television Award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series, and was also nominated for a Teen Choice Award for her performance. Beau Mirchoff who plays “Matty,” recently won the Teen Choice Award for “Choice TV Breakout Star” for his role on the show.
What do you think? Are you happy MTV renewed Awkward for a new season? Let me know in the comments section.
