    You have to give the show a chance and that can’t happen if you cancel it after only one season! This show has a great storyline and even greater actors! Please don’t cancel because ratings aren’t as high as other network shows. You have a core audience who will be terribly disappointed and probably give up on NBC period!

    Please…please….please don’t cancel Deception. There are no good shows on anymore. I too love Revenge but am slowly losing interest with the storyline. I think Deception started off with a bang and it would be a shame not give it another season. I hope NBC doesn’t make a huge mistake with this one.

    This show is the best night time drama I’ve seen in a long time. The Grayson’s on Revenge look like school teachers compared to the Bowers on Deception. I think the actors do a fantastic job and it would be such a loss for it not to return. NBC has cancelled a lot of good shows in the past. Please don’t add this one to the list.

    Please renew for 2nd season!! This show is as good as Revenge! Not many good shows on TV anymore. This is a fabulous one!!!

  7. juanita says

    I think that this is one of the better night time dramas. I so sick of the same story line
    like dallas, revenge, mad men these always tell the same story. Here is a show that
    has a different flare some mystery. You need to keep this show on give it a chance.

  8. Elle Ess says

    Do bring this one back, for at least 1 more season…SOOOO much better than Revenge or the “reality” shows.
