MTV had some good news and some bad news for one of its scripted shows. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the cable channel renewed the comedy “Awkward” for a fifth and final season.
It’s not known how many episodes the season will have, but it’s likely that the fifth season will be split into two runs, similar to the show’s third and fourth seasons.
The fourth season of “Awkward” has averaged about 1.19 million total viewers, down about 100,000 from the third season, when its creator Lauren Iungerich was involved in the show. She left the series after the third season, with new showrunners Mike Chessler and Chris Albergheni taking over.
