    I just discovered Deception. Please keep it on. I’ve bought all the series I missed so I could start at the beginning. Give series a chance to catch on. I’m getting tired of getting interested in something and y’all axing it. TV is over run with reality shows.
    Please keep deception. Thanks

  4. J&J all the way! says

    Oh yes I absolutely love this show and watched the entire season. Excellent writing, plot, characters and the best hottest Couple …Julian & Joanna. WES & Meagan have some electrifying chemistry!! I cant wait to see what is ahead because this show keeps my attention. The ONLY Network show I watch. NBC you have a GEM on your hands, keep it going.

    I think this show should be renewed. It is a well written show that has good acting. A second season to wrap up some of the mysteries and add story arcs should help draw more viewers as they discover the show!
