The Supersized 24-Episode Two Part Fifth Season Will See High School End,
Test Friendships and Force Jenna To Finally Make A Decision
About A Future With Matty
There are only a few weeks left of high school, and Jenna (series star Ashley Rickards) and her friends must make the most of it. Everyone has already figured out what they are going to do next year, but there is a sense that "anything could happen" lingering in the air. The season is jam-packed with big senior year milestone moments - including senior pranks, prom and graduation, where Jenna will have to decide once and for all: are she and Matty (series star Beau Mirchoff) meant to be?
"It's finally here! We have been through many of their high school ups and downs and at the end of the first half of season 5 we finally see Jenna and her friends graduate. But the story doesn't end there," said Mina Lefevre, MTV's Senior Vice President, Head of Scripted. "In the second half of season five we pick up with the cast a year later...where they quickly realize those awkward moments don't stop once you leave high school. This opens up endless opportunities to continue telling their story."
Jenna and her friends' experience at Palos Hills High is almost over. Everyone's already gotten into college and there's the sense that anything can happen. When Jenna unwittingly gets school cancelled during a class prank, she becomes popular - just as Matty experiences life on the social outs for the first time. As always, Jenna and Matty are drawn toward each other, but with college looming just a few months away, it's harder than ever to decide whether they should be together. For all the characters, actions have more adult consequences than ever before: friendships will be tested to the breaking point, relationships will end, and the gang will have to say goodbye to each other and to Palos Hills. The season builds to the twin milestones of prom and graduation where Jenna will have to decide once and for all: can she and Matty make it work?
