TV show description:
Based on the Dutch drama series Overspel, this dramatic series revolves around a beautiful photographer who begins an affair with the lawyer for a powerful family.

Following a chance meeting between professional photographer Sara Hanley (Hannah Ware) and top attorney Jack McAllister (Stuart Townsend), the two discover they have an instant and undeniable attraction. Unfortunately, they’re both already married. Sara and Jack realize something is missing in their marriages, and fight against the realization that they’ve met their soulmates in one another.

Sara is married to Drew Stafford (Chris Johnson), a successful prosecutor with political aspirations, and they have a seven-year-old son, Oliver, together.

Unbeknownst to Sara, Jack is the in-house counsel to a powerful and shady entrepreneur, Thatcher Karsten (James Cromwell). Jack is married to Thatcher’s daughter, Elaine (Wendy Moniz). She’s is a smart and determined woman who’s trying to make her Chicago café a success on her own terms — while still being a good mother to their 16-year-old twins, Valerie (Elizabeth McLaughlin) and Victor (Braeden Lemasters).

As Sara and Jack struggle with their feelings and their guilt, Thatcher’s brother-in-law is murdered, and all evidence points to Thatcher’s mentally-challenged son, T.J. Karsten (Henry Thomas).

Things become even more complicated when Sara’s husband becomes the prosecuting attorney in the high-profile murder case, a case that could secure his political future. Jack will be the lawyer for the defense.

The lovers quickly find themselves in an impossible situation -– on opposite sides of a murder investigation.

Series Finale

Loved the ending. Would love to have this show renewed. Would love to see more of Diane. Will be waiting to find out who makes Sara smile like that. She’s dressed up…I think it’s Drew…but having wine which might be Jack. Oh brother! Please come back.

I am hoping for a season 2 more than ever now. This show has kept me coming back every week. Each episode had great surprises, twists & turns. There was never a boring show. The actors are wonderful, especially the connection between the characters Jack & Sara. I love Stuart Townsend in this show!

I love this show and am very upset that it will no longer be on! You always cancel the good shows just when everyone starts liking them! Will be switching to another show away from this Chanel. Bad mistake letting this show go!

Please don’t cancel.. I love this show!!! There should be a second season with that kind of ending…

Please do not cancel Betrayal. It is my favorite show.

How could you end this without telling us who Sara ends up with. This is a great story and needs to be continued.

This has been a program for us a little older people. Why do 18-39 rule the TV world. A lot of us have gone through similiar problems. It was in a bad time slot. Please renew this program for next season


Lily Mia January 19, 2014 at 11:09 pm

Please renew Betrayal. It is a good series.


Veronic January 19, 2014 at 11:08 pm

Love Betrayal and would really hope it’s not cancelled. I just watched the season finale and would really like to know who the glass of wine was for. Not sure who would be the bad guy since Karsten is dead or is he? I guess the focus could be on politics. Not sure.

Love this series and so do my friends. Please do not cancel.

This is one of my favorite shows! We strive for perfect marriages, but does not always happen. Real love only comes once in a lifetime. None of us are ever for sure. These actors are great characters as the show seems so real! It deserves to stay on the air!


Karen January 19, 2014 at 11:02 pm

Love, Love, Love this series…So true to life for a change….Please don’t cancel…
