Fresh off the news that MTV has canceled "The Hard Times of RJ Berger," the network has given the greenlight for a second season of freshman comedy "Awkward.".

The show takes an irreverent look at the conflict, chaos and humor that defines teenage life through the eyes of 15-year-old Jenna Hamilton, played by Ashley Rickards ("Fly Away," "One Tree Hill"), whose life begins to change when a simple accident becomes an epic misunderstanding and is blown way out of proportion.

The show still has 7 episodes left to air in season 1 and season 2 will begin airing in 2012. The show is the second MTV scripted show to get a pickup this summer after "Teen Wolf."
