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?

    I’m so upset this show isn’t coming back. I was just rewatching the episodes because I liked it so much and couldn’t wait for it to come back. This is such a let down.

    I can not believe that ABC did not renew this show. I loved this show!!!!! Maybe decisions like this are causing people to watch TNT, BRAVO, TLC, or Lifetime!! ABC you messed up!

    I am so sad this show is canceled. It was definitely one of my favorite shows and shouldn’t have been canceled. I finished the show on Hulu in 3 days. I loved it :(
