The Paley Center celebrates the season two premiere of MTV’s Awkward. The breakout comedy series, which the New York Times called, “the smartest, freshest, most moving new sitcom of 2011,” is about the events 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, and 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 picks 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. returns for its sophomore season on Thursday, June 28 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
