    NBC should renew Deception. It was a good show!! I am disappointed that it was cancelled. Give it a second chance!! or as suggested by DD, Deception should move to another network.

  2. Linda Campbell says

    I love love this show, I never got to see the finale eposide? I think thay should bring it back. Who decides ??? From what I read everyone enjoyed it. Please let me know if it will be returning

    I have to agree that the networks don’t give the shows enough chance before they pull them. I thought Deception was a great show… I don’t think that your ratings are accurate… it makes me not want to start to watch new show’d…it’s just not fair to get people hooked and then cancel them out so fast…

  4. Michelle says

    Please renew Deception!! It was one of the few shows that my husband and I looked forward to watching together. Please give it another season.

  5. Karabo says

    Wow, your networks are really cold. Here in SA we are still on episode 5 and the show is already cancelled. Sad was not given a chance because I think is so much better that some of the popular shows the CSI spin off (boring), Grey’s Anatomy (especially the finale time to end seriously) and NCIS (could not even finish the first episode).

  6. says

    I sure had hoped they would renew Deception. They didn’t give it a chance. I didn’t begin watching until the middle of the season. The networks make me sick. That was a very good show. The actors were superb. I especially liked Meagan Good as Joanna and Ella Mae Peck as Mia Bowers. They were all over the top. I wish Netflix would do the same with that as they are doing with House of Cards.

    Why is it being canceled with one season!? Ur leaving me hanging over here !!! I think it should at least go on for another season gosh ! Lol oh well guess my questions want be answered now thanks NBC thank u oh so much

  9. DD says

    I would like to know why cancel DECEPTION and leave everyone in suspense. I believe it wasn’t give a chance to have viewers to watch it. Maybe it should leave NBC and be shown on another network. However, I LOVE, LOVE it. I looked forward to watching it as I looked forward to watching SCANDAL, GREY’S ANATOMY, NCIS, NCIS: LA, CSI, CSI: NEW YORK AND BLUE BLOODS. I think DECEPTION is not giving a opportunity to prove itself based on being NEW and giving ONE SEASON to be viewed by viewers. I believe it should come back another season. I want to know what’s going to happen next.

    Love it!!!
    Please have a second season. The characters are interesting, the plot suspenseful and exciting. I really want to know what happens :)

    I loved this show I had watched the first two episode’s when they aired however due ot other things going on I was unable to follow it. I did watch all 11 shows on Demand and love it. At least bring it back to resolve it if nothing else.
