The faux lesbians will be back. MTV has renewed its newest comedy, Faking It
, for a second season of 10 episodes. The show will air its first season finale Tuesday, June 10 at 10:30pm.
Faking It is available on Amazon Prime.
centers on two female best friends in high school who decide to pretend to be a lesbian couple to gain popularity. Complicating matters is the fact that one of them is actually a lesbian harboring feelings for her BFF, but the other is obsessed with the hottest guy in school.
The renewal is a big deal because MTV has been in a bit of a rut when it comes to scripted shows. The network has Awkward
and Teen Wolf
, but beyond those, the last six new scripted shows MTV debuted were all cancelled after just one season. That list includes comedies Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous
, The Inbetweeners
, Death Valley
, I Just Want My Pants Back
and dramas Skins
Other than Teen Wolf
and Awkward, Faking It
is the first MTV scripted show to get a second season since The Hard Times of R.J. Beger
, which debuted in 2010.Faking It
stars Rita Volk, Katie Stevens, Gregg Sulkin and Michael Willett. The first season ends Tuesday at 10:30pm on MTV.(Image courtesy of MTV)
