Things around MTV are bound to be more awkward.
Awkward, a teen-oriented TV series on MTV is set to be up and running for a third season! Not only that, but the network is also planning to make today’s teen’s lives a lot “Awkward-er” by upping the show’s episodes for the season.
MTV has already ordered a 20-episode third season of the said show, which almost doubles the episodes of its first and second seasons. Sounds like more comedy for the show’s avid watchers! David Janollari, the head of MTV programming, released a statement about this:
Creator Lauren Iungerich’s creative vision, coupled with this extraordinarily talented cast, make Awkward the perfect series for MTV. 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.
The show’s second season, which premiered in the last week of June, already has an average of 1.8 million viewers, 6 percent higher than that of Season One.
