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?

    As a mom with 2 busy kids I rarely get to sit down and watch show, however, BETRAYAL was my show, the show I made sure I watched every week, and the hour that it was on went by so fast and I could not wait for the next week’s show. I am so dissapointed that this show has been cancelled. The network should definitely give it another chance; great writers, awesome actors, captivating plot, bring it back!!!

    Omg I cannot believe there will be no 2nd series of Betrayal! It was and has been the best drama on television . I am so disapointed that it won’t be back. I have watched every episode on a Friday evening and have recorded all. Please please please bring back Jack (my heartthrob ) and Sarah. Friday evenings won’t be the same . I can’t believe it was because of bad ratings as all my colleagues and many friends watch this without fail.

    Logged into ABC to see when new season would come on. To my surprise to find it was cancelled. This is so disappointing. It was a great show. I’m sure ratings would go up if the advertise during prime times and give it another season.

      I just can’t believe that Betrayal has been cancelled. It is the best program that has been on for years. Everyone I know loves it so can’t believe that it’s been axed due to bad ratings . Some of my friends were annoyed because the last few episodes were put on at different times so maybe that is why the best thing on TV was missed by some. There’s so much rubbish on TV at the moment and this was one programme that they actually got right .Give it another chance and give people what they want….
