MTV Renews Faking It for Season 2
Proving that there's more to MTV High than just teenage werewolves and their friends, the network has renewed its freshman comedy Faking It ahead of Tuesday's Season 1 finale. The series stars Katie Stevens and Rita Volk as best friends Karma and Amy, who fake a lesbian relationship to become popular at their high school, a fairly progressive institution where the misfits are worshipped and the jocks are jokes.
While the premise may sound forced and kind of ridiculous, the series has grown into a solid hit for the network as Volk's Amy has realized she might actually have romantic feelings for her best friend. Faking It has averaged a 1.5 rating in its target 12-34 demographic, and 1.4 million total viewers, making it MTV's highest-rated new series launch this year.
