At this point, MTV has definitely DTR'd its relationship with its scripted comedy "Awkward": They're going steady. To prove they're taking things to the next level, the network has renewed the series for an extended third season.
Its third outing will offer a heavier dose of awkwardness with 20 episodes, which is nearly double the numbers of its freshman and sophomore seasons.
The series, which stars Ashley Rickards as a teenager struggling to navigate the tortuous world of high school, is currently in its second season and draws 1.8-million total viewers per week, according to the network.
The renewal comes after the network's announcement that "Teen Wolf" would return for a third season, also with a super-sized order, getting 24 episodes.
