Amy Juergens and the rest of the gang are finally back with new episodes of The Secret Life of the American Teenager.  The break-out summer hit ended its first run of 11 episodes on September 9, 2008, with the remaining 13 installments slated to air on a new Monday timeslot beginning tonight at 8pm ET/PT.

The Secret Life of the American Teenager, a teen drama that centers on relationships between families and friends dealing with the unexpected pregnancy of character Amy Juergens, portrayed by Shailene Woodley, ranked number one with ABC Family's key demographic in its debut time slot versus cable television shows, and averaged 4 million total viewers per episode last summer.  The show also earned the Teen Choice Award for Choice Summer TV Show during its premiere season.

When we last saw The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Grant High was buzzing with new rumors and gossip as usual.  Adrian disappeared, Madison (Renee Olstead) and Lauren (Camille Winbush) were telling everybody that Ricky's in therapy, while Ricky set his eyes on Grace.  Ben and Amy, on the other hand, were talking about having sex for the first time.

In tonight's episode called “The Secret Wedding of the American Teenager,” Amy and Ben (Kenny Baumann) decide to get married in secret with the help of their friends.  Meanwhile, Anne (Molly Ringwald) informs George (Mark Derwin) she wants a divorce, and George moves into their garage to save money.

Moreover, Amy finally learns the gender of her baby while her relationship with Ben is put to the test as she struggles with the decision to keep the baby or give it up for adoption.  At the same time, Ricky (Daren Kagasoff) continues to seek out a relationship with Adrian while still dating Grace (Megan Park), who seems to be falling in love with him as well.  However, things get complicated for Ricky when his abusive father comes to town.
