MTV Renews Awkward. for a Big Season 3

B-hymens, beware! MTV has done the right thing and renewed its new hit Awkward. for a third season, says The Hollywood Reporter. And to keep up the momentum of its recent wave of successful original programming, MTV has increased the show's episode order from 12 to 20.

If you haven't seen Awkward., click on over to MTV's website and start watching it NOW (all of the episodes are online for free). It's a fearless, touching, smart comedy about high school and one girl's quest to manage the ups and downs of varying degrees of popularity. And the kids swear a lot.

Normally, I'm of the mind that bloating a cable show from 12 episodes to 20 episodes is a bad thing. I mean, it's great for everyone working on the show (167 percent work increase!), but 20 episodes means it'll be more challenging to maintain the level of quality the show has been putting out there. However, 20 episodes will allow creator Lauren Iungerich to delve deeper into the awesome world of Palos Hills High School that's been taking shape in Season 2 instead of limiting the action to protagonist Jenna Hamilton. Can we get some Sadie-centric episodes, please? I'd LOVE to see her sit down for dinner with her parents.

Who would you like to see more of in Awkward.'s third season?
