Girl-centric TV shows are all the rage right now.  I “limped” through HBO’s new series “Girls” that just wrapped up this past Sunday (more on that another time…but doesn’t Shoshanna remind you of Tamara on “Awkward.”?) while anxiously awaiting season 2 “Awkard.”- my current day “My So Called Life” slash “Degrassi” slash “Daria” slash the unedited rawness of topics like teen sex seen in “Skins.”  Wait no longer! …Well, not much longer.  Season 2 of “Awkward.” premieres on Thursday, June 28, 2012 at 10:30 PM ET/PT on MTV and will run for 12 episodes.  MTV also has a promotion where you can win a season 1 DVD, click here to link to the entry form on Facebook.

Excerpts from the press release

“Awkward” is about the specific incidents in our formative years that define us, sometimes for the best and sometimes for the worst. The show centers around fifteen-year-old Jenna Hamilton, whose life changes when a simple accident becomes a misunderstanding of epic proportions that leads everyone to believe she tried to commit suicide. Season one concluded with Jenna choosing Jake over Matty and the stunning revelation that Jenna’s mom wrote the carefrontation letter.

Season two will pick up in the aftermath of these momentous events, exploring the theme of resolution as Jenna begins to examine her relationships with her family, friends and the two guys she’s torn between…

…”Awkward” stars Ashley Rickards as Jenna, Beau Mirchoff as Matty, Molly Tarlov as Sadie, Jillian Rose Reed as Tamara, Brett Davern as Jake, Nikki DeLoach as Lacey, Desi Lydic as Valerie, Jessica Lu as Ming, Mike Faiola as Kevin and Greer Grammer as Lissa.

The series was created by Lauren Iungerich. Iungerich and Erin Ehrlich serve as executive producers.
