The third season of Faking It just premiered last night. Recently, series showrunner Carter Covington spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about his dream ending for the MTV TV show.
Faking It stars Katie Stevens and Rita Volk as Karma and Amy, two high school friends who pretend to be in a lesbian relationship. Soon, Amy develops actual romantic feelings for her best friend.
Though MTV has not cancelled the comedy, Covington told The Hollywood Reporter said he has the ending in sight:
If the show were as popular as I wish it were, and we had as many seasons as we could, I would wrap up a version of high school, like Awkward is doing right now. And then I would love to fast forward five years and see everyone post-college. I don’t think our characters act like high schoolers at all. [Laughs] I would love to see them living in a city and working jobs and having the struggles of post college life. I think that would be really fun. We’ll see if we’re ever able to do that. But that would make me so happy. I definitely want to see that.”
He added that this season will attempt to offer some resolution in case the series is cancelled:
“On my last show [10 Things I Hate About You], we ended on crazy cliffhangers. There was no resolution and it was really hard for me. On this show, I’m really trying to feed some answers [this season] so that if the show were to end, there wouldn’t feel like everything got dropped off a cliff. I had that in my mind this season, just knowing the way TV works, you just never know if you’re going to get more. Should this show not go past this season, I think it’s rewarding in its own right.”
