Betrayal: ABC TV Show Cancelled, No Season Two

Betrayal series finaleMultiple sources are reporting the news that we all saw coming. Betrayal has been cancelled and won’t be back for a second season on ABC.

On Betrayal, the extra-marital affair of two professionals gets even more complicated when their families end up on the opposite sides of a murder trial. The cast includes Stuart Townsend, Hannah Ware, Henry Thomas, Chris Johnson, Wendy Moniz, Braeden Lemasters, Elizabeth McLaughlin, and James Cromwell.

The drama had poor ratings right from the start and then, the numbers got even worse in subsequent weeks. The finale registered just a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.3 million viewers.

Despite the dismal ratings, the network denied that the show had been cancelled. Thankfully, the last episode provided some measure of closure for the devoted fans who stuck with it.

What do you think? Are you sorry that the show’s been cancelled, that there won’t be a second season of Betrayal?

    Ok it’s been a while since i’ve writen on the show. Betrayal was a fanfantastic show with excelent actors & actresses playing these wonderful characters. Why would it be cancelled? Dumb reason b/c the show did not make the ratings. Let’s remember the ratings were in the millions but it was not enough. Craxy!!! Well I believe the show Heros had been cancelled b/c of the same thing. Guess what the show has been renewed for another season wthit the same actors & it’s been a while that this show was cancelled. What the hell. Can we get our show betrayal back on T.V please. Make sure it’s the same actors & actresses too. It would not be the same with out them. So please people think about all the fans thay love this show. At least give us a correct proper ending for it’s fans. We are loyal fans!!!!

    i am sorry it was cancelled. My husband and I were faithful watchers and we thought it was very good. I wish they would reconsider, maybe try another time or station. I loved that show and have been waiting for it to come back on

    Yes, really disappointed that this is not returning. I thought the ending was a strange one so did wonder! Is this all to do with American ratings?? I don’t think it’s fair, they keep doing this with so many US programmes over here. People like to watch these in England! Make it come back!!
