MTV has announced the premiere date for AWKWARD season 5B, as well as for season 3 of FAKING IT today. Both shows will be airing back-to-back on Tuesday, March 15 beginning at 10/9c on MTV.
In season 5B of AWKWARD (which is currently being thought of as the final run of episodes unless some drastic happens), the show “kicks off at the beginning of summer, a year after we last saw Jenna and her friends. She returns with a new-found confidence as she starts an exciting summer fellowship at an internet startup. As she reconnects with her high school friends, it’s clear that there has been a lot she has missed. It’s a summer of friends, self-discovery, romance and mystery that will forever impact everyone’s lives.”
Meanwhile, season 3 of FAKING IT “centers around friendship and how complicated and fragile it can be; so easy to break and hard to put back together. After a summer apart, Karma and Amy struggle to get things back on track. Shane is caught between friends, while Liam wonders whether he is even capable of having friends. Meanwhile Lauren struggles with a decision, if friends are worth the effort.”
