‘Awkward’ Spoilers: Showrunners Wrapping Up Jenna and Matty’s Relationship; To Possibly Introduce New Characters in Season 6?
One of our favorite couples on TV is going to be in different parts of the world. “Awkward’s” Jenna and Matty have finally given their relationship another shot, but they also have decided to attend schools in different sides of the country. The question here is, will their relationship survive? We have some “Awkward” Season 5 finale spoilers for you.
“Awkward” Season 5A finale ended with Jenna saying that things didn’t work out as planned. Mike Chessler and Chris Alberghini, show runners reveals that “What we’re exploring is what I think happens to any couple in high school. They’ll have to start negotiating how to sustain a relationship once you’re going to different colleges.”
There is also the possibility that “Awkward” may be renewed for a 6th season, which means that if that happens, Matty and Jenna would have at least one more season to figure things out. However, the showrunners were quick to clarify that even if they do get a 6th season they will definitely wrap up things between Jenna and Matty.
“We’re hopeful that 5B is not going to be the end of the show. That’s not been determined yet, one way or the other. But 5B would be the end of this chapter of the story because if we continue the show, I think it would be another era and another part of the journey. In terms of the Matty/Jenna story, it was very clear to us when we took over the show what it was about, and… we’ve ended up in a place that’s very organic, based on who these characters are. The reason people relate to Jenna and Matty’s romantic arc is because it’s so true to high school relationships,” they said.
That means the couple’s fate remains a mystery to all of us. But of course, we’re rooting for Jenna and Matty to survive this relationship obstacle. Alberghini added that no matter what happens between Jenna and Matty, the two will always have a “deepening connection” considering everything that they have gone through over the past years.
And also, if “Awkward” gets renewed for Season 6 and the show runners are wrapping up things between Jenna and Matty in the Season 5B finale, does that mean that they are going to introduce new characters next season?
