Here’s some great news for fans of MTV’s hit show ‘Awkward’ - it’s been renewed for Season 4!
First reported by Deadline yesterday, the series renewal might have some viewers worried since the show’s creator, Lauren Iungerich, announced she was exiting the critically acclaimed series this past June.
Susanne Daniels, MTV’s programming president, released the following statement regarding Iungerich’s departure, “‘Awkward’ is a wonderful series and we appreciate the creativity and devotion Lauren brought to this show. We wish her the best in her new ventures.” Reports also suggested she left for personal and professional reasons. Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler will step in as the new showrunners.
Despite the above news, fans of the show should stick around. The series has become a huge hit and thanks to actors Ashley Rickards, Brett Davern, Beau Mirchoff, Nikki Deloach, Molly Tarlov, Desi Lydic and Jillian Rose Reed. The show follows the story of teenager Jenna Hamilton (Rickards) on her “awkward" journey throughout high school. Jenna started out as an unknown, but soon after an accident was mistaken for a suicide attempt, she became one of the most popular girls in school. The dramedy first premiered in 2011.
Before we can even enjoy Season 4, fans can catch the second half of Season 3 this October on MTV.
