TV: Faking It – Season 2

On: MTV

Premiered: September 23, 2014

Starring: Rita Volk, Katie Stevens, Gregg Sulkin, Michael Willett, Bailey De Young, Rebecca McFarland, Senta Moses, Erick Lopez, Courtney Kato, Breezy Eslin, Anthony Palacios, Amy Farrington, Lance Barber, Dan Gauthier, August Roads, Yvette Monreal, Keith Powers, Bruce Thomas, Skyler Maxon, Chloe Bridges, Bernard Curry, Parker Mack, Ed Quinn, Cameron Moulene & Lindsey Shaw

Split into a two-part season, Faking It comes back just as relevant, funny and awkward as the first.

New secrets are exposed from Amy (Rita Volk), Liam (Gregg Sulkin) and Lauren (Bailey De Young). Meanwhile Karma’s (Katie Stevens) family is dealing with financial issues, as Shane (Michael Willett) finds a new boyfriend (Skyler Maxon) who’s stuck in the closet.

With the reveal of Lauren’s secret, Faking It becomes the television show to feature a main character that is intersex. With the show already dealing with other parts of LGBTQIA spectrum, this only enhances its open and accepting storyline. The character goes through some hardships, but comes out strong.

The writing is so on-point with the different topics faced and will have you laughing through it all even if you shed some tears.

Final say: Beyond fun. ★★★★★
