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).
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
Can’t wait one second longer to watch MTV’s newest scripted series?
You’re in luck: The network is premiering the pilot for Faking It beginning today. For 48 hours, the episode will be available exclusively on the MTV App ahead of its April 22 premiere.
Faking It is a romantic comedy about two best friends. After numerous failed attempts to become popular, the girls are mistakenly outed as lesbians, which launches them to instant celebrity status. (#Teens.) Loving their newfound high school popularity, Karma (Katie Stevens) and Amy (Rita Volk) decide to keep up their romantic ruse.
Faking It is executive produced by Carter Covington (10 Things I Hate About You, Greek, Hart of Dixie). The series was created by Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov.

“Popular” used to be a title reserved for jocks and homecoming queens — but MTV’s upcoming scripted series Faking It proposes that lesbians may be the new cool kids.
The show follows Karma (Katie Stevens) and Amy (Rita Volk), two best friends who are desperate to be popular. Once someone falsely outs them as gay, they find out everyone at school finally wants to be their friends — mission accomplished! The only problem: They don’t actually have romantic feelings for each other, so they have to choose between being honest or being popular. Guess which they pick?
Watch the trailer below and catch the premiere April 22 at 10:30 p.m. on MTV:
