I loved this week's episode apart from the predictable ending. Matty is so adorably hot. What was she thinking? Collin was hot but you could tell he was a douche. The Asian mafia stuff is so entertaining. Wonder what will happen next episode.
'Awkward' Season 4 scoop: New showrunners reveal Ming, Collin not returning and more
Here's a little good news/bad news situation regarding "Awkward." When Season 4 debuts, two faces won't be returning: Ming and Collin.
When the new "Awkward" showrunners Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler spoke to Buzzfeed for the first time since taking over the MTV critical darling from creator Lauren Iungerich (who left the series in June), they revealed the casting change-up, of which one-half was deeply upsetting.
"Jessica Lu [who plays Ming] is not returning," Alberghini says. "She wanted to move on." Ming was Jenna's BFF, and for a brief time was the head of the Asian Mafia, a hilarious and quirky B story arc that will also not be returning in the new season. Her absence will definitely be missed, as she's been a major part of the series since day one.
While the new showrunners didn't explain why Nolan Funk will also be MIA for the new season, it's not hard to imagine why: Collin was the worst. He was the one Jenna (Ashley Rickards) cheated on Matty (Beau Mirchoff) with, encouraged her to become a pothead, had his other girlfriend slip her ecstasy ... the list goes on and on. Good riddance.
