Is season five it for MTVs Awkward? Showrunners Mike Chessler and Chris Alberghini certainly hope not.
In an interview with TVLine, the two discussed the mid-season finale of Awkward, which premiered earlier this week, and how they see the future of the MTV dramedy.
Last year, the network announced season five would be the series’ last, but Chessler and Alberghini are still unsure.
“We’re hopeful that 5B is not going to be the end of the show,” Chessler said. “That’s not been determined yet, one way or the other.”
Recently, the series underwent some major changes. At the end of the third season, show creator Lauren Iungerich left the series and was replaced with Chessler and Alberghini. Ratings for the fifth season haven’t been stellar either. Since the season premiere in August, viewership has been middling to low.
The second half of Awkward‘s season five will air in 2016 and see the characters jump forward a year to the summer after their first year in college.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Awkward? Do you want to see another season?
I personally think the show should be renewed and show a whole new profile; I was very interested to see how Matty and Jenna’s future would turn out and didn’t really get to see much of that. It would be great to bring it all back again so the audience who loves the show can continue watching it and send out more helpful opinions.
Please renew Awkward for season 6 I would love to see what’s happening with Matty and Jenna plus the crew
please renew. I love the show
I want it back. I’ve grown to love the characters and look forward to it. Please come back. I love this show!!!
I love this show it’s such an easy watch, and I really love the characters. I am a woman in my late 20’s and really enjoy watching the coming of age story lines… I really hope that the show gets renewed for a sixth season just to properly tie up all of the story lines and to see how it will work with Matty and Jenna, to see them living together in the same way Luke and Jenna were would be great. I felt like episode 24 wasn’t properly concluded. Awkward is definitely one of my favourites.
Renew please NYC here!!!
Please, please continue the show!
I’m such a huge fan of the show. I hope they continue the serial. FFS if Pretty Little Liars can still be on this long so can Awkward! Plus, this show is 100 times better! At least if you end it. End it. Don’t just end it with all of these unanswered questions.
Yes I am a fan and I hope they do jot end it. Maybe have Matty and Jenna get married just like her mom and dad.:)
