Good news for Karmy shippers.

MTV has ordered an additional 10 episodes of its boundary-shattering romantic comedy Faking It, which follows two best friends who pretend to be lesbians in order to gain popularity until real feelings get in the way of the charade.

The handful of episodes will act as the season 2B when it returns next year. The series stars Katie Stevens, Rita Volk, Gregg Sulkin, Michael Willett, and Bailey De Young, whose character was revealed to be intersex in the second-season premiere. READ FULL STORY

'OITNB' star Laverne Cox brings the drama on MTV's 'Faking It'

Laverne Cox is trading in her orange jumpsuit for a more dramatic role on MTV’s Faking It.

On Tuesday’s episode, the Orange Is the New Black actress will make her side-splitting debut as Margot, the demanding director of the school’s drama department who will hilariously push Karma (Katie Stevens), Shane (Michael J. Willett) and Lauren (Bailey De Young) to their limits. How did the Emmy nominee book a ticket to Hester High? EW hit the set to find out:

Beau Mirchoff on 'Awkward' midseason premiere, Matty's stages of grief

The end of senior year is upon us. Well, not us, but the kids of Palos Hills High School. And, well, not the actual end, but the looming threat of it.

Awkward is raising the stakes in the second half of season four—premiering Sept. 23 at 10 p.m. on MTV—with an evil girlfriend and a possibly fake pregnancy, all of which are dealt with in the midseason premiere. With so much on the line for Jenna’s (Ashley Rickards) on-again, off-again boyfriend Matty (Beau Mirchoff), we thought it wise to get Mirchoff’s take on what’s in store for Matty when the ski trip is all over and Eva is—hopefully—out of the picture.

EW: As far as Matty’s search for his birth parents is concerned, is there a major tone shift this season, like the ‘Bad Jenna’ phase?
BEAU MIRCHOFF: It’s quite analogous to that. There’s of course a lot of humor, as there always is, but there are some dark scenes and peculiar moments that arise. There’s definitely a whole scope of feelings that arise for Matty. Maybe initially he’s not okay with it. I think he’ll experience the whole spectrum. First you deny, then you accept it… it’s like stages of grief that Matty is probably going to have to deal with the hard way.  READ FULL STORY

'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. Stars Katie Stevens and Rita Volk address the scene that made everyone scream at their televisions, tease what’s in store for season 2, and share how they took a crash course in becoming best friends:

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.

'Teen Wolf' post-mortem: Jeff Davis on those finale twists, season 5

What’s a trip to Mexico without a few berserkers, one very angry werejaguar, and a near-death experience, right? That’s the attitude Teen Wolf took in its season 4 finale, when nearly everyone headed down to Mexico to save Scott from Kate, himself, and then from Peter. One hour later, we’d said (hopefully a temporary) goodbye to Chris Argent, a hello to a more powerful version of Derek, an Eichen House goodbye to Peter, and a maybe-see-you-later to Kate. As for the others, Kira had received her first tail, Jordan Parrish was about to learn a lot more about himself, and Liam had gained a little control over his life.

We chatted with Teen Wolf showrunner, Jeff Davis, about the action-packed hour, the thought behind all the twists, and where the show will go in season 5. (Hint: It involves the desert.)

Tyler Posey and Dylan O'Brien of 'Teen Wolf' on fans, first impressions

In four seasons, Teen Wolf has morphed from a guilty pleasure into a bloody thrill ride, making teen-scene royalty out of leads Tyler Posey (as titular teen wolf Scott McCall) and Dylan O’Brien (as his trusted friend Stiles). Offscreen, the 22-year-old actors are real-life pals who display an easy rapport despite some philosophical differences on things like sports and tattoos.

EW visited the show’s Los Angeles set recently for scoop on the sexiest, scariest, most bonkers show on MTV. Check out the extended interview below:

EW: This year, you premiered the season while still working on it. Did that throw you off to watch the premiere then come to work?
TYLER POSEY: It caught me completely off guard. We never really had a season start filming as we’re shooting it. It’s hard to be focused on both, but it’s exciting. The next day, I’ll always wake up to a text from Dylan like, ‘The episode was great, you kicked ass.'”
DYLAN O’BRIEN: I watched it at like 3:30 in the morning. READ FULL STORY
