MTV has announced the renewal of a series after a shakeout behind the scenes. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the cable channel is bringing back "Awkward" for a fourth season, minus the show’s creator and former showrunner.
The show has tapped new showrunners, Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler, who will replace creator and former showrunner Lauren Iungerich.
Iungerich left the show after the comedy ended its third-season production in June, the story notes.
Alberghini and Chessler previously co-created VH1’s series "So NoTORIous," starring Tori Spelling, and worked on the CW’s "90210."
"Awkward" ranks as MTV’s longest-running scripted comedy, with the third season bowing in April with 2.1 million total viewers. The second half of season three will debut in October.
