MTV has ordered a fifth and final season of their flagship comedy series Awkward, TVWise has learned.
Awkward follows fifteen-year-old Jenna Hamilton, whose life changes when a simple accident becomes a misunderstanding of epic proportions that leads everyone to believe she tried to commit suicide.
The comedy series was created by Lauren Iungerich and stars Ashley Rickards as Jenna, Beau Mirchoff as Matty, Molly Tarlov as Sadie, Jillian Rose Reed as Tamara, Brett Davern as Jake, Nikki DeLoach as Lacey, Desi Lydic as Valerie, Jessica Lu as Ming, Mike Faiola as Kevin and Greer Grammer as Lissa.
The decision to end the show comes as the fourth season is currently airing on Tuesday nights on MTV. It also comes just over a year after the departure of Lauren Iungerich, who exited the show to develop new projects with other networks. Mike Chessler and Chris Albergheni will remain on as showrunners for the final season.
