‘Awkward’ premieres tonight on MTV and we can’t wait for Season 4 because everyone is hooking up and breaking up! Actress Jillian Rose Reed EXCLUSIVELY tells us that Jake and Tamara could be headed for splitsville. Uh oh!
Jillian Rose Reed returns to the small screen on April 15 as the hilarious Tamara on Awkward. We caught up with Jenna’s (Ashley Rickards) on-screen bestie who gave us the scoop on Season 4. Keep reading for our EXCLUSIVE interview to find about new boys, breakups and makeups.
‘Awkward’ Season 4 Premiere: Do Tamara & Jake Break Up?
Awkward returns for an new season on April 15, and the fresh episodes bring around new hookups — and break ups. The Season 4 teaser has Jenna and Matty (Beau Mirchoff) waking up sans clothing in bed together, but that’s nothing compared to the naked truth we got out of Jillian Rose Reed!
Are Tamara and Jake (Brett Davern) having problems beneath the sheets?
“Yeah, you could say that,” revealed Jillian EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “They’ve had their ups and downs, and the bedroom problems seem to be a bit of a breaking point!”
It sounds like Jakara has some steamy problems to work through, such as Jake dumping Tamara in the season promo, but as if that’s not enough, it’s also senior year. Which means tons of pressure.
New Season, New Year, New Relationships
“I think both characters are going through a lot senior year, figuring out what they want their last year as high school students to be,” says Jillian whose character Tamara is class president this year. “She loves being president so I think she’s thriving in senior year. That doesn’t mean she isn’t crazy though — she definitely is.”
So crazy that she ends up cat-fishing Jake when he cuts ties with her! When Jake shocks Tamara, dropping the “I want to break up” bombshell, she logs online to play games with his “new” dating mates. But even though Jake’s new dating ventures might be fake, there are some new romances brewing around town.
As the crew heads to college, new men are on the horizon and Jenna hooks up with an older guy in the new promo (watch below). Matty also has a new girl on his arm and Jenna is not happy about it. “There’s a lot going on with the two of them this season,” Jillian admits of Jenna and Matty. “Lots of drama!”
WATCH the drama unfold in the new promo (below), and catch Awkward‘s Season 4 premiere on April 15 (10/9) on MTV.
HollywoodLifers, do you hope that Jake and Tamara get back together? How about Matty and Jenna? Let us know!
