Awkward is set to end after Tuesday’s fifth season finale, but showrunner Mike Chessler has revealed plans for a potential Season 6, should MTV decide to extend the series, per TVLine:
“[Season 6] would be a very different. We’d jump ahead in time again, and there have been conversations about having it in a different city with a different feel. The reason I said this episode is the close of one chapter is because, if there were to be another chapter, it would be a very different phase of [the characters’ lives]. We’d really turn the show on its ear.”
On the odds of Awkward Season 6 becoming reality, executive producer Chris Alberghini holds the door open while warning that the show’s ultimate fate still rests in the hands of MTV:
“We as the showrunners certainly believe there are plenty more stories left to tell, and we’re excited about the potential to do so. But we don’t control the fate of the show. It’s just a matter of MTV deciding what fits into their schedule next year and how many shows they’re going to have. We’re certainly interested, and most of the cast is interested.”
However, should Awkward indeed conclude after five seasons, Chessler believes the ending will attempt to provide some sense of closure, “feel[ing] complete in its own way”.
Stay tuned to find out whether Awkward ends as planned or continues into Season 6…
