    Hopeful of good news from the nextwork of a “Season Two” for Deception, I along with so many others just have fallen in love with this show. The finale, there are so many things that we need closure to, please don’t let this show fall to the waste side. I believe it was a replacement for Revolution which it was on hiatus, I never even watched that show and just happen to come across Deception a few days prior to it being aired when searching on the Internet for another show. Yes, we very much enjoy this night time show/drama and again, am hopeful for another season plus. Sincerely, a loyal viewer.

    Seems like when NBC gets a good show they cancel it! AND they wonder why they are so LOW in ratings. Why not stck with a winner and keep Deception on the air…..then again I am preaching to NBC

    I really enjoyed this series. A show that ends with you wanting more every wk is a good bet. I certainly hope they will continue it.There are so many reality shows on that it is quite refreshing!

    I loved this kept you thinking and second guessing who killed Vivian Bowers….I really want this series to continue….Is it Edward..?

    A big fan

    I liked the show even though it gets confusing at times with all the layers of people especially when the name of someone gets brought up in episode 5 that was killed off in ep 2 and he had a small part. This is ok when watching a soap opera thats on every day but when you’ve got 7 days between each ep and they go back to ep 2 that’s a lot of time gone by and requires a liitle too much recollection. It’s a little uneven at times and I’d like to see more continuity between episodes. I can see why the viewing audience steadily declined each week. Too much thinking and remembering! I watched to the end and I would watch season 2 if they make it, great cast except I would have picked someone else to play the part of Joanna like Sanaa Lathan.

    Deception is a really good show. NBC needs to give it a chance to gain momentum, and they need to work hard at keeping the show on the air (for instance, more advertisement, have the actors to visit different morning and late night shows to let the audience know that this is the show to watch). I look forward to watching it every Monday night. I hope it returns for a second season!

    I love Deception. Every episode had me sitting on the edge of my seat. There are so many twists and turns and unanswered questions. I really hope they renew the show. This is actually the first new show that has held my attention in years. Go Deception!!

  8. Tia says

    Please renew. I love it on Monday nights but if moving nights gets it the attention it deserves so be it. I will be watching….avoid Sunday nights. LOL
