'Awkward' creator leaving show

Posted on

Awkward creator Lauren Iungerich is leaving the series, according to MTV.

The network said it was a mutual decision.

Awkward is a wonderful series and we appreciate the creativity and devotion Lauren brought to this show,” MTV Programming President Susanne Daniels said in a statement. “We wish her the best in her new ventures.”

Awkward is currently finishing production on the second half of its third season, which Iungerich will reportedly oversee until completion. The series, which aired its midseason finale almost two weeks ago, will return from hiatus in October.

MTV is currently seeking a new showrunner for the potential fourth season.
