‘Awkward’ Sets April 16 Premiere Date

On April 16, “Awkward” will be back—and junior year is going to prove to be just as uncomfortable as ever for Jenna Hamilton and her pals.

Season three of the hit MTV series finds Matty and Jenna together, but of course Jake is always there. And, that relationship proves to have its lingering effects, especially during a game of charades.

And when Jenna’s not in the middle of that Matty-Jake love triangle, there’s a new guy. Welcome Nolan Gerard Funk’s Colin to the mix. And he’s the kind of guy who makes the sorts of Jane Austen references that leave girls a little bit weak in the knees.

Well, it does sound like things are certainly going to get a lot more dramatic, what with the love triangle taking on a whole new shape—love square. Hollywood Crush recently chatted with Matty himself, Beau Mirchoff, who opened up about all these new developments.

“I honestly believe this season is the best one yet,” he said. “It’s really funny. It’s more dramatic, there’s more drama as the season progresses. It’s a good season for Matty, as well. He’s kind of maturing. He’s evolving and maybe a couple characters are devolving.”

So, mark it on your calendar:, the new season premieres Tuesday, April 16 at 10 p.m. ET.
