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!


Nadia March 27, 2013 at 8:18 pm

Please renew! This is a great show.. There’s not many shows with a plot but this one has one!


D March 27, 2013 at 7:53 pm

Please renew. Great show.


Kate March 27, 2013 at 7:52 pm

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.

Loved this show from beginning to end, please dont cancel it give it another run and watch how many people start to watch, plus there is nothing like social media FB and so on


Mac J March 27, 2013 at 4:53 pm

Please don’t cancel this show i am tired everyday new rated shows are be canceled like Missing, Alcatraz, Last Resort.. just keep this one up..>>>>”””

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.


Teresa March 26, 2013 at 10:04 pm

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


J March 26, 2013 at 9:41 pm

This show needs to come back


Steve O'Dell March 26, 2013 at 8:04 pm

Please renew this show for another season. I think it has been great so far and I want to find out “Who murdered Vivian?”


sandra sapenter March 26, 2013 at 5:30 pm

Jeannette Wolzen March 26, 2013 at 4:04 pm

Please renew this show.


juanita March 26, 2013 at 1:44 pm

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.


Lisa March 26, 2013 at 1:43 pm

Love this show.. don’t leave us hanging!!!!!!!


Elle Ess March 26, 2013 at 12:39 pm

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