PROM, GRADUATION AND THEN WHAT? REALITY SETS IN WHEN MTV'S HIT COMEDY SERIES "AWKWARD" RETURNS ON MONDAY, AUGUST 31 AT 9:00 PM ET/PT ON MTV

The Supersized 24-Episode Two Part Fifth Season Will See High School End, Test Friendships and Force Jenna To Finally Make A Decision About A Future With Matty

April 29, 2015 (Santa Monica, CA) - Get ready for a little pomp and circumstance when MTV's hit comedy series "Awkward" returns with the first half of the highly anticipated fifth season on Monday, August 31 at 9:00 PM ET/PT. For a sneak peek, click here.

There are only a few weeks left of high school, and Jenna (series star Ashley Rickards) and her friends must make the most of it. Everyone has already figured out what they are going to do next year, but there is a sense that "anything could happen" lingering in the air. The season is jam-packed with big senior year milestone moments - including senior pranks, prom and graduation, where Jenna will have to decide once and for all: are she and Matty (series star Beau Mirchoff) meant to be?

With high school ending and everyone heading going in different directions, the second half of the fifth season will jump forward to one year later, summertime back in Palos Hills.

"It's finally here! We have been through many of their high school ups and downs and at the end of the first half of season 5 we finally see Jenna and her friends graduate. But the story doesn't end there," said Mina Lefevre, MTV's Senior Vice President, Head of Scripted. "In the second half of season five we pick up with the cast a year later...where they quickly realize those awkward moments don't stop once you leave high school. This opens up endless opportunities to continue telling their story."

Season four of "Awkward" averaged 1.9 million total viewers each week and a 2.0 in L+7D ratings for the P12-34 audience.
