Ashley Rickards: Say Some Smart Things Every So Often

Posted: Updated:

Ashley Rickards is at that "awkward" age, and apparently it won't be ending anytime soon.

MTV has ordered more episodes of its teen comedy "Awkward."  The cable network has confirmed that the fourth season will have an extra 10 episodes, bringing its overall total to 20.

The show stars Ashley Rickards as high school student Jenna, who strives to leave her wallflower ways behind in order to fit in with the other kids.

MTV premiered "Awkward" in 2011 and has since won a Teen Choice Award, as well as a People's Choice Award.

Ashley talks about the show's third-season finale with Steve Edwards and Lisa Breckenridge on Good Day L.A.
