Well, this is Awkward: MTV has picked up a fifth season of the critically acclaimed comedy series, but also confirms it will be the show's last.
There's nothing worse in high school than learning your girlfriend has cheated on you ... unless you catch her in the act in front of all your friends.
On the Awkward premiere on Tuesday (10:30/9:30c, MTV), Matty (Beau Mirchoff) threw his girlfriend Jenna (Ashley Rickards) a surprise birthday party, but was hit with his own surprise when she obliviously walked in making out with Colin (Nolan Funk). How will the high school hottie deal with the big betrayal?

The secret's out! In Tuesday's midseason premiere of MTV's Awkward the whole world found out about Jenna (Ashley Rickards) cheating on Matty (Beau Mirchoff) with hipster Collin (Nolan Gerard Funk) — and for once it wasn't because bestie Tamara (Jillian Rose Reed) blabbed to someone she shouldn't have. Reed called TV Guide Magazine to dish about what this means for Palos Hills High's worst secret keeper.
Awkward. is about to get even more awkward.
It took nearly three seasons for Jenna Hamilton (Ashley Rickards) and Matty McKibben (Beau Mirchoff) to truly be happy together — but in one fell swoop, Jenna threw it all away. On the midseason finale, Jenna gave into temptation and kissed Colin Jennings. (Nolan Funk), the new guy that had caught her eye. So where does Jenna go from here?

How did any of us survive high school? Forget grades. We're talking insecurities, anxieties and social terrors, which have rarely found such vivid comic voice as in MTV's wonderful comedy Awkward, which begins a third season of emotionally harrowing hilarity with back-to-back episodes (Tuesday, 10/9c).
It's junior year (or "the beginning of the end") for the show's self-consciously angsty narrator/blogger Jenna (the terrific Ashley Rickards), who you'd think might be in a happier place having spent the summer cocooned with full-time no-longer-secret boyfriend Matty (Beau Mirchoff). No such luck. With other friends having spent their off time in Europe, hooking up and changing their looks without keeping her in the loop, Jenna worries she's being sidelined, left behind, forgotten. It doesn't help that her sadistic tyrant of a new creative-writing teacher, the heartless Mr. Hart (Anthony Michael Hall), burrows into her fragile psyche with the very first assignment: "Write about your greatest fear." Where to begin?

Wizards of Waverly Place
More than a year after the Wizards of Waverly Place hung up their wands, the show returns to Disney Channel with a one-hour special on Friday, March 15 at 8/7c. Selena Gomez is back to star in and executive produce the event, dubbed The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex.
In the special, the Russo family and pals travel to Tuscany, Italy, to meet relatives. But while attempting to prove that she's serious about her craft as a wizard, Alex (Gomez) accidentally conjures up a spell that splits her personality into two — a Good Alex and an Evil Alex. The two dueling Alexes eventually battle over the fate of her family and mankind atop the Tower of Pisa.

Awkward fans are about to see a whole new side to resident mean girl Sadie when she falls in love for the first time.
"She's going to let her guard down a bit," star Molly Tarlov tells TVGuide.com. "She's going to be dealing with male intention for the first time. Sadie's whole thing is that she wants attention, but also doesn't want it — that's what makes her so insecure and so mean."
