    This show needs to be continued, still too much left unexplained and i personally can’t wait for it too begin again.

  2. Diane says

    I just started watching this show and have watched all the episodes on demand. I just love it. Hope it returns.

  3. meme says

    I think it should at least be wrapped up all qestions answered i have been watching from the beginning it is becoming more and more what the networks are doing its a shame u almost dont want to watch new tv shows do to fear of ending before it really starts. Ijs

  4. Cathy says

    I’m actually disappointed. I thought it would end tonight. Just one season was enough. I’m not tuning in for next season. It’s not worth my time. I actually just stuck with it because I thought it would only be one season. Now they’re turning it into a soap opera…. I’m done!

  5. Angela says

    I think Deception is awesome. It has more twists and turns that anything I’ve ever watched — and I don’t like crime/cop shows at ALL. Keep the episodes coming. I’m telling everyone I know to watch it……. It can’t end with THIS finale — too many things left wide open. #LoveIT

    Ok you absolutely cannot cancel this show.! I have watched it from day 1 and I’m in love with it. Why cancel a show when your finale ended with Mia, who was VIvians daughter gets drugged by Wyatt who is Sophia’s crazy ex boyfriend and not to mention they finally have clues on Robert bowers who is now the suspect for his daughter. Another thing is Joanna and julian(which is one hot couple) what happens with them?? Please don’t cancel this show its a must see and I know a lot of people who watch it. Cancel it after season 2 if you want but at least finish this show instead of leaving all the possibles open. It’s like a book.. Don’t close it and never open it until you have fully read it.

    Love this show : love all the characters!!!! great acting would not miss it and if they do not renew this one please at least end the show with an ending that does not make you feel like you wasted monday night sitting on the edge of your seat just to end if with a cliffhanger instead of a proper finale!!!!

  8. Jessica says

    Love the show! This show definitely keeps you entertained and wanting more. Looking at the ratings I can see why that it would be on the fence, however i am also a fan of revenge as well. This time last year revenge had very similar ratings and now this year it has sky rocketed. I think with season reruns/marathons of the season and maybe a better time slot or paring with a show that would keep viewers tuned in, would yield the same results! O, and a little bit of marketing as well. Keep the show!!

    This show rocks. Its right up there with knots landing. The chemistry between the characters are hot. Keeps me on the edge of my seat weekly… cannot be finalized and 11 episodes please continue on to find out who killed all of them
