'Faking It' stars address polarizing hookup: 'We totally understand why you're angry'

Here’s what you may have missed last season on Faking It: In order to gain popularity, best friends Amy and Karma pretended to be a lesbian couple, but Karma was secretly hooking up with cool guy Liam, while Amy slowly started to realize that she has feelings for Karma. It all imploded when Liam discovered they weren’t actually lesbians, and Karma rebuffed Amy’s true feelings. Drunk and angry, Liam and Amy hopped in the sack in what is best described as one of the most polarizing scenes this year.

Now that you’re all caught up, EW hit the set of the MTV comedy to find out if the dynamic duo’s relationship will ever be the same.

Faking It fans won’t have to wait long to discover the truth behind one of the first season’s big cliffhangers as the MTV series reveals why Lauren has been popping pills in the upcoming season 2 premiere.

Everyone's keeping secrets in the 'Faking It' season 2 trailer

The story of Faking It started with one lie: Best friends Amy and Karma decided to pretend to be a couple so that they could be “cool.” But one lie turned into many more when Amy realized she had real feelings for Karma, was rejected by her bestie, and then slept with Karma’s boyfriend. But as the season-two trailer puts it, “What does it all mean?”

Well, for now, it looks like it means keeping secrets, acting normal, and eventually, everything blowing up in a dramatic fashion.

Faking It kicks off its second season Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 10:30 p.m. on MTV.

MTV renews faux-lesbian comedy 'Faking It' for second season

MTV will fake it again.

The network has given the greenlight to a second season of its newest scripted comedy for the high school set, Faking It, which follows two best friends who pretend to be lesbians in order to become popular. As we learned during the first season (the finale airs June 10), one of the fakers isn’t exactly pretending anymore.

The freshman comedy was MTV’s highest-rated new series launch this year, pulling in 1.4 million viewers each week and retaining almost 90 percent of its 10 p.m. lead-in from the fourth season of Awkward.

Faking It stars Katie Stevens, Rita Volk, Gregg Sulkin, Michael Willett, and Bailey Buntain, and is executive produced by Carter Covington (Greek, 10 Things I Hate About You).

'Faking It': Karma and Amy pitch the threesome you've been waiting for -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

What better way to stave off suspicions when you’re pretending to be lesbians and trying to get your rocks off?

It was only a matter of time before Karma and Amy, the fake lesbians (well, only one of them is) at the center of MTV’s surprisingly charming Faking It, would let a “womanizing hetero-normative bro-douche” bridge the sexy gap between them. That bro-douche in question is Liam, who’s been waiting to pull the tantric trigger with Karma for quite some time. Could a three-way finally be the solution to getting him in the sheets?

The real surprise here is Amy, who may just be using the cover of a threesome to be intimate with Karma without, you know, confessing that she’s actually a lesbian and not just pretending anymore. Will she finally lay everything on the table before the season’s end, or will we have to wait for a second cycle of MTV’s best new high school dramedy?

Watch Karma and Amy ménage a try-to-get-it-on with brooding Liam in our exclusive clip from the May 27 episode “Three to Tango.” And as we all know, the sexiest part of a threesome is figuring out scheduling. READ FULL STORY

Once someone falsely outs them as gay, they find out everyone at school finally wants to be their friends — mission accomplished!
