TV show description:      
Bo (Johnny Sequoyah), a young girl, has had gifts she could neither fully understand nor control — like levitation, telekinesis, the ability to control nature, and to see the future. Now that she’s 10 years old, her powers have become stronger and the threat from malevolent forces — those that would use her abilities to control the world — has grown more dangerous.

With her life and future in jeopardy, Bo’s protector, Milton Winter (Delroy Lindo), turns to an unlikely source to keep her safe — Tate (Jake McLaughlin), a wrongfully imprisoned death row inmate who’s lost his will.

Tate and Bo begin an extraordinary journey, one in which trust must be earned. On the run and traveling from city to city, every place they stop and everyone they meet are changed forever. They have to keep going to stay one step ahead of the evil forces after Bo’s power.

Other characters include Channing (Jamie Chung), an associate of Winter’s; Skouras (Kyle MacLachlan), Winter’s former partner who’s after Bo for unknown reasons; and Corey (Arian Moayed).

Series Finale:     
Episode #12 — Second Chance
Dr. Skouras meets with Winter to warn him about Danni, his promising young rogue telepath who’s determined to destroy Bo. Danni has the power to kill Bo, but she’s a ticking time bomb. She will succumb to her illness before long, and she’ll be trying desperately to take down Bo on her way out. Winter reluctantly agrees to help Skouras, but there’s a problem: Winter has no idea where Bo and Tate are.

Meanwhile, Bo and Tate make their way across the country toward Mexico. Tate urges Bo to use her powers to procure a winning lottery ticket, ensuring a happy, comfortable future for years to come. Bo has a vision in which she sees her mother, Nina, who tells Bo to ask the convenience store cashier about her charm bracelet. Bo talks to the cashier, who turns out to be Danni’s former best friend. By touching the charm bracelet, Bo gains insight into Danni’s troubled past. She watches as Danni inadvertently kills her own brother after losing control of her powers.

Winter devises a plan to lure in Danni: he’ll to use Channing as live bait to draw Danni out. He hypnotizes Channing to implant a psychic signal that will attract Danni. The plan works perfectly. Danni arrives at the hideout and Skouras’ team fills the room with gas, but instead of succumbing to the chemicals, Danni charges out of the room in a rage and attacks Channing and Winter, torturing them to extract Bo’s location. Danni realizes that Winter has been monitoring Bo by tracking Tate’s cell phone. Now she can find and destroy Bo, thanks to Winter.

Bo and Tate visit Danni’s old home to learn more about their adversary. In Danni’s room, they discover evidence that Danni did, in fact, kill her brother. Bo feels that Danni deserves a second chance, but Tate doesn’t think she can be saved. Unfortunately, the conversation is cut short when Danni bursts into the room. Tate attempts to protect Bo, but Danni easily dispatches him by slamming him against a wall. Before Bo can react, Danni creates a havoc of wind and electrical energy, snatches Bo and locks Tate in the room.

Meanwhile, Skouras heads to the Orchestra facility to wipe the hard drives clean. If Danni’s actions cause the story to go public, the last thing he needs is a media storm around his top secret government project. Winter and Channing find Tate at Danni’s old home, and Winter has a good idea where Danni will be headed with Bo: Orchestra.

Just as Skouras finishes wiping the hard drives clean, Danni enters with Bo. Tate, Winter and Channing arrive at the facility moments later to find Bo and Skouras tied up, and Danni surprises them. Winter tries to talk Danni out of her plot, but she refuses to comply. Instead, she locks the doors, trapping them inside. After a failed attempt to break Danni’s psychic bond and force the doors open, Bo sees her mother, Nina, again. Nina tells Bo that she can save everyone, including Danni, with kindness. After the pep talk from Nina, Bo finds the strength to force the doors open.

Winter, Channing, Skouras, Tate and Bo charge into the courtyard to find Danni, more enraged than ever and surrounded by a tornado of fire. Just as she’s about to unleash her fury on the group, Bo walks through her fire tornado and tells Danni that her brother forgives her. It’s all Danni needed to hear. She extinguishes her flames and collapses to the ground, where she succumbs to her ailments and dies.

Bo has saved the day, but the celebration is short-lived. Winter tells Bo to leave with Tate immediately, before the police arrive. Sadly, this is the end of the line for Winter and Bo. If she’s to be safe, they can never see one another again. After Tate and Bo depart, Skouras tells Winter to flee as well. He’ll take the blame for this. Bo and Tate hit the road again en route to the quiet, peaceful life that Bo deserves. (courtesy NBC.)

    I HATE it every time I like something they have to cancel it!!!!People don’t appreciate a good show they love crap like honey boo boo shows!!!
    I hope they bring believe back but I doubt it.

  2. Shayla says

    It pisses me off knowing that the television show Believe is going to be cancelled! I was hoping they would reconsider their decision. This show is so amazing and the characters Bo and Tate are amazing actors, I watch this show with my mother every Sunday. The shows that they choose to keep is just beyond words. I hope they change their decision because that show was really good and from the comments above it has a really supporting audience!

    Please don’t cancel this show. This is the ONLY show that my kids and I watch regularly. We really love this and record and watch when we can all be together. NBC please reconsider.

  4. Amanda l. says

    I’m really upset by this!! Kept hoping it was a mistake and that they would reconsider! When u see the crap that continues on. Including these ridiculous “reality” shows. That are an embarrassment, as they are supposed to represent our society, here in the states! I wonder who is making the judgment calls here!

  5. Barb says

    Please do NOT cancel Believe! The show has an original concept. People have not yet found it. We hadn’t until told about it. We love it. Others we have told had not heard of it either. It will gain popularity as people find it if NBC will advertise better and give it a chance. It is one of the few shows we enjoy.

  6. Bill says

    Please don’t replace it with another hillbilly,swamp family.Let the gators and turtles
    live another season.

  7. Joanne says

    NBC disappoints two years in a row by canceling their best new series – Believe this year and Smash last year.

  8. Isabel Hall says

    I accidentally missed the final episode of this series, which I loved. I’m horrified to discover it has now been cancelled. I also discovered tonight that Intelligence has been cancelled as well. Why is it that shows with new ideas get axed before they’ve had a chance to develop and build an audience?

    • John says

      It is because the networks rely on a long-outdated rating system, whereas they use boxes given out to select viewers to monitor their viewing habits, then have them represent a large number of people like themselves. However, these boxes don’t accurately monitor those who prefer to watch their programs online, either because they don’t care to sit through too many commercials or, like myself, they don’t have very good antenna reception and don’t want to pay for cable.

      As for missing the final episode, you can still watch it on Hulu or Hulu+.

  9. Terri says

    I am really going to miss this show. I’m so tired of good shows getting cancelled only for cheaper, stupid reality shows multiplying. This show was different and honest and wholesome and had a message, plus it kept me very interested and I truly cared about the characters…especially Bo and Tate. It is such a shame…its all about money. If they had just put it on a different night and promoted it better, this wouldn’t have happened. I have lost all faith in NBC. There is only one show left that I watch on this station. ..we’ll see how long that last. Goodbye Believe….I hardly got to know ya but I will certainly miss you!

  10. Colleen says

    Please don’t cancel Believe. My husband and I love this show. It’s one of the few we watch together. We’re looking forward to another season, please!!!

  11. Sue says
