  3. CHICKA 16 says

    please renew, season finale was awesome. I watched every episode and I’m addicted. You cant end a great show without a 2nd season. Please renew there is so many questions left to be answered……

    Fantastic, good looking cast, excellent actors, Love Scandal but really love Deception. It is a AWESOME, fantastic show, great storyline, love the finale, got more story life….so many question, so much potential. Did Robert really kill Vivian or is he covering for someone? Did Beverly reveal more to Julian? What is Julian going to do with the info about his mom? Does he alrady know about Joanna being a cop? Haverstock, my favorite….he becomes attorney general? What happens to Will’s partner? What about Edward? Mia missing? What is Wyatt going to do? Agree with the post, show needs to lean towards, a more dramatic crime show rather than a soap opera. NBC needs to get on Twitterland, have a prechat, post chat, Twitter parties, and have every single Deception actor needs to participate including Wes Brown…he probably will have the most fans, men an women love him…

  8. Michelle Smith says

    I absolutely love this show. My uncle and I look forward to seeing this show every week and we are hoping to be able to view it in the future. I believe that people just didn’t know about this show and if they have a chance to get to know the show they will love it too.

  9. T Scott says

    This show had so many twist and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. Very good show and I hope it will be renewed. As others have mentioned, there are so many loose ends….. The truth behind Bowers deceased wife, Wyatts motive, Vivians murder closure,what will happen with Julian and Joanna, etc…. Enough for an exciting season 2.
