"Lauren Iungerich’s creative vision, coupled with this extraordinarily talented cast, make Awkward the perfect series for MTV,” head of programming David Janollari said in a statement. “Critics and our audience alike have fallen in love with Awkward, and we’re thrilled to bring this terrific series back for a third, supersized season.”

MTV made a similar move with another hit series this summer: Teen Wolf Season 3 will air in 2013 and feature 24 episodes.
