'Awkward' gets one hour season premiere

Awkward will return with its fourth season in a supersized fashion.

MTV announced today the dramedy, which is the first for new showrunners Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler, will return April 15 with a one hour episode at 10 p.m. ET. A tease from MTV promises, “even more complications for Jenna as a senior” and “more boy trouble, drama with her friends, a new girl in town who has eyes for Matty.” The following week, Greek creator Carter Covington’s coming of age comedy Faking It will join Awkward on Tuesday nights, airing in the 10:30 p.m. timeslot.

The network also announced House of Food, a Top Chef-meets-Real World cooking competition reality series, will premiere March 31 at 10 p.m. ET.

MTV picks up 10 more episodes of 'Awkward'

Well, this could get Awkward.

And we mean that in a good way. EW has confirmed that MTV’s Awkward isn’t finished yet. The network has picked up season 4′s back 10 episodes, so just in case you were worried, there’s plenty more awkwardness coming your way.

'Awkward.' trailer: Jenna hits 'rock bottom' with latest love triangle -- VIDEO

MTV’s Awkward. always works best when there’s a love triangle involved. And while we’re far removed from Jenna’s Matty vs. Jake debate of the early seasons, it’s time for a new tangle: Matty vs. Collin. (Seriously, Matty can’t catch a break.)

But Jenna’s real relationship drama as season 3 continues appears to be with BFF Tamara and with her parents, who threaten to kick our leading lady out of the house (harsh!).

Get a sneak peek of all the drama below:

MTV renews 'Awkward' for a fourth season

Awkward fans, rejoice! Though showrunner Lauren Iungerich is peacin’ out after three seasons, the MTV hit has been renewed for a fourth season, MTV announced Monday. Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler will take over the showrunner position when the fourth season premieres in 2014.

Season 3′s second half is due to begin in October.

'Awkward' creator exits show, MTV searching for new showrunner

Awkward creator Lauren Iungerich is leaving the series, according to MTV.

The network said it was a mutual decision.

Awkward is a wonderful series and we appreciate the creativity and devotion Lauren brought to this show,” MTV Programming President Susanne Daniels said in a statement. “We wish her the best in her new ventures.”

Awkward is currently finishing production on the second half of its third season, which Iungerich will reportedly oversee until completion. The series, which aired its midseason finale almost two weeks ago, will return from hiatus in October.

'Awkward.' trailer shows what comes next after [spoiler] -- VIDEO

“Madness. It’s total madness.”

Jake sums up the drama coming up on Awkward. quite well in the trailer below. But we’d expect nothing less after Tuesday night’s mid-season finale, which saw Jenna [spoiler coming ... ] cheating on Matty with Colin.

And while she narrowly escaped exposure in last night’s episode — Matty almost witnessed Jenna and Colin’s car makeout — it seems she continues to play with fire in the next few episodes, which will air in the fall. (“Once is an accident, twice is an affair,” Tamara accurately puts it.)

Watch the emotional trailer below.

'Awkward.' cast dishes on tonight's mid-season finale and one 'pivotal' moment

So what exactly goes down? See below for teases from Beau Mirchoff, Brett Davern, Jessica Lu and Greer Grammer.

'Awkward.': Beau Mirchoff, Molly Tarlov tease teaming up, plenty of shirtlessness in season 3

Last night, Awkward.‘s supersized season premiere proved double the pleasure, double the stun with a couple pregnancy scares, a death, lots of Jamara canoodling, and one truly unfortunate YOLO-inspired tattoo on Matty’s upper thigh.

Beau Mirchoff, who plays Matty, and Molly Tarlov (the show’s main mean girl Sadie) told EW that last night’s episodes were just the tip of the iceberg for the show, which will chronicle the gang’s junior year in season 3. Though Mirchoff and Tarlov acknowledged their characters will find themselves in some unexpected places over the next 18 episodes, there’s one predictable outcome that will comfort fans: Matty will be showing off his six-pack as much as possible. Read on…


'Awkward.' creator previews season 3, star Ashley Rickards admits she's 'scared' for Jenna

When Awkward. wrapped up last September, the gang had finished their sophomore year: Jenna (Ashley Rickards) had resolved her mommy issues and DTR’d with Matty (Beau Mirchoff). Jenna’s BFF Tamara (Jillian Rose Reed) and ex-boyfriend Jake (Brett Davern) were sparking en route to a European class trip with TMI-prone guidance counselor Valerie (Desi Lydic), who’s been putting the pal in Vice Principal since an unexpected promotion. And, for just a moment, it seemed all would be well in Palos Verdes. Not so fast!

Tonight’s season opener (a two-episode kickstart to this year’s supersized 20-episode run) is called “Cha-Cha-Cha-Changes” for a reason. “A lot has changed, and a lot will change,” Rickards tells EW. “Last season was about change, and this season is deciphering if that change is the change you want. It’s figuring out ‘Where does the past fit into the present, and where does the future work with where I am now?’”

Series creator Lauren Iungerich agrees that season 3 will see the teens embarking on a more introspective phase of their lives. “This season is junior year, where you start to think about college. It’s the Thursday night of high school,” she says. “You have to start really thinking about your future. So this season is really examining ‘Who do I want to be?’ With that comes a lot of complication for Jenna and the rest of the characters.” READ FULL STORY

MTV welcomes us back to Palos Hills with new 'Awkward' webisodes -- VIDEO

Bonjour and welcome to the first webisode of the third season of Awkward. The show’s season premiere is still days away (April 16), but MTV is down with the many youths, and EW staffers, who love the show, and is releasing a series of short clips to hype the new episodes.

In the first, we learn that school counselor Val is back from a “whirlwind tour of Europe” (she brought back a straw hat!) and is excited to give a group of incoming freshman the same treatment. Except this tour mostly just involves Val caring, like, a lot about the social lives of her students. Remember that lunch table where Jenna, Ming, and Tamara all sit?

Fun fact: There’s a lot of cringing. Are stripes-vest combos in? Follow (period) me (period).


'Awkward.' season 3 premiere date, trailer released -- VIDEO

Awkward. fans, relief is in sight!

MTV has announced the show will return for a third season April 16 with two back-to-back new episodes starting at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

According to a release, the third season, which will feature new cast members Anthony Michael Hall and Nolan Funk, will open with Jenna experiencing a “wave of surprises and chances that potentially will impact her future in an indelible way.” And in the second episode, the death of a classmate causes Jenna to “reflect on loss, grieving, and taking responsibility for a secret she’s keeping from Matty.”

'Awkward' scoop: Anthony Michael Hall joins cast as sadistic teacher

Anthony Michael Hall is going back to high school.

The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles actor is joining MTV’s Awkward. He’s coming on board the show’s third season for a multi-episode arc.  Hall will play Mr. Hart, “a sadistic creative writing teacher that pushes the students out of their comfort zones.” We’re told there’s a method to Mr. Hart’s madness that will have a major impact this season.

Hall is considered a great fit for the show given Awkward has been frequently compared to John Hughes’ 1980s comedies.

And that’s not all. Nolan Funk (Glee) has also just been added to show’s cast in a multi-episode arc. He’ll play a confident new prep school transfer to Palos Hills.

Awkward doesn’t have a return date yet, but given the success of the show, MTV is doing 20 episodes this season instead of the usual 12.
