‘awkward’ season 5 filming is giving us lots of warm-and-fuzzies

Palos Hills High School’s Spring Break trip to Mexico left certain friendships fractured and potentially closed the door on Jatty for good, but it looks like the mood is a little bit more sunshiny as the “Awkward” cast begins to film the show’s final season.

This week, Ashley Rickards, Beau Mirchoff and the rest of the PHHS gang kicked off production on Season 5, and where the crew’s cameras went, the iPhones and Instagram filters followed. First things first: Nikki Deloach‘s young son Hudson left us completely comatose from cuteness-overload during a visit to set.


“On-set baby love. It’s truly a family affair,” Deloach captioned the photo above, which features Jillian Rose Reed, Molly Tarlov and Greer Grammer, before Rickards set her sights on the little guy. “One more hug for the road,” Deloach wrote with the pic below.

And for Tarlov, the good juju didn’t stop there — though her character Sadie went rounds with Sergio through Season 4′s tail end, the actress and actor Niko Pepaj are still two birds of a feather behind the scenes. “#Sadio,” Tarlov succinctly posted with the photo below.

Not every capture proved to be posed, though, and notorious on-set joker Brett Davern caught Rickards in a rather compromising position — likely, right after she hit up craft services. “Surprise selfie!” he noted of Rickards’ blueberry bagel breakfast.

Glad to see this SoCal clan back in the swing of things? Take a look at the season’s early images, and keep up with MTV News for more updates on “Awkward” Season 5!
