MTV has renewed freshman series Awkward. for a second season. The show has been picked up for 12 episodes expected to air in early 2012.

Awkward. premiered last month has aired only four episodes of its first season. The renewal comes after the show scored its highest rating so far with a 2.0 among P12-34 - up 21% from its previous week. Seven new episodes remain in Season 1, with its next new installment airing tomorrow night.

MTV has been making moves lately with its various scripted series. Along with Awkward., Teen Wolf was also renewed for a second season last month, while The Hard Times of R.J. Berger was not so lucky, being cancelled just a few days ago.
