Awkward MTV

Renewal follows the departure of 'Awkward's' creator from the series in June

After series creator and showrunner Lauren Iungerich exited the show in June, MTV has handed a fourth run to its scripted comedy “Awkward,” with new showrunners aboard.

Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler will now spearhead the Ashley Rickards-starrer, after logging time on programs including “90210’s” reboot, “Reba” and Tori Spelling’s reality show “So Notorious.”

“Awkward” bowed its third season on MTV in April, returning steady with just over 2 million viewers. MTV will roll out the second half of “Awkward’s” third run in October, and has slated season four for next year.
