Awkward. is back for season 2 this summer. Will you be tuning
series centers around 15-year-old Jenna Hamilton, whose world is turned upside
down when an accident is misunderstood as a suicide attempt, changing the way
everyone thinks of her. Season 1 was packed with embarrassing moments,
uncomfortable situations, and a tricky love triangle, all of which made us feel
a little bit better about our own blunders!
when the series returns this Thursday,
June 28, at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, you better believe there will be even more
awkwardness! We’ll also get to join Jenna as she gets a better understanding of
her relationships with her fam, friends Tamara and Ming, and of course, cuties
Jake and Matty.
also be seeing more of Tamara’s off-and-on BF Ricky, the band geek who doubles
as a player. We caught up with sweetie Matthew
Fahey who plays Ricky in the show. And as if you didn’t love this cutie
before, here are seven more things to heart about him…
He’s BFFs with
the Awkward sound guy. “He’s like my
best friend. Nicest guy you’ll ever meet. I just sit there and crack jokes with
him all day long.”
self-proclaimed nerd. “I’ve collected comic books since I was little. I have so
many old Spider-Man and X-Men [ones]. They’re all in sleeves and
put away in a room where it’s temperature-controlled.”
He’s tight with Lucy Hale. “The other
night, I was at Lucy’s birthday party and I thought my friend was there. So I
went up and I kind of tickled his sides. The guy turned around and it was not
him. I saw him a couple of times later that night and he kind of just kept
giving me a weird look. It was pretty awkward.”
He’s 21 going
on 16. “I’m
only 21, but at the same time I want to be 16 again. Growing up, I always
wanted to be older and people would tell me, ‘When you’re older, you’re gonna
say you wish you could go back and be that age again and do this or that.’ I
never really understood that until now.”
He digs honest
thing that’s always caught my eye is just being yourself and not trying to
overdo things. A guy will appreciate that so much more than somebody trying so
hard to be something they’re not.”
He’s a jock. “I played
football my entire life—I still play every Saturday. I want to see Ricky try
out for football. I think he would be the kid getting knocked down all the
time. He’s suave, but at the same time he’s not as tough as he thinks he is. I
think it would be hilarious.”
adventurous. “I have this huge bucket list of things I want to do.
There’s this thing in New Zealand called The Nevis Swing. It’s kind of like
bungee jumping, but it swings you upside down through this entire canyon. I
want to do that!”
sure to catch Matthew and the rest of the Awkward.
gang for the season premiere this Thursday at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
