I think it should of got promoted more cuz the show was crackin n it ended juz wen it was gettin good. I really dont watch local channels bcuz I have dish. I hate regular tv n I probably wouldnt have known about the show if I didnt kno the new law n orders that I luv *** on channel 4. I hope they give it a second season they need to especially if they keep hannibal

    I loved this show. Each week I looked forward to watching Deception and Scandal. Both kept me wondering what would happen next. Please, Please bring back another season.

  5. Queenie says

    Sick and tired of liking a show, then not having an ending. Seems that there are to many reality shows that should be cancelled and leave our good shows alone.

    I’m said to find out this show may be canceled. The plot was good and kept me wanting more. I hope there’s a season two.

    With regard to Deception, My husband and I just purchased the DVD set of season One, as well as a second copy of the same set for my son and daughter-in-law. That is HOw much WE BOTH ENJOYED THE FIRST DISC! Of course, that was also, prjor to knowing that you were NOT RENEWING THE SHOW!! Why would you not finish what you started, atleast complete it. Do a “mini” siris finale, you could wrap It Up in two episodes, all die hard fans would be happy and stop complaining, make it three..and you can sell another small CD set. We loved all the actors, it was a great show! Bring it back, atleast to finish it up.

    I really loved this show. I was hoping for a second season. I Watched Deception faithfully every Monday.

    I enjoyed the show and hoped for a second season. Season 1 was a cliff-hanger. At least resolve the mystery fully before cancelling. It was as entertaining as the other suspense/crime dramas and with a more believable plot. Some of the other dramas have too many twists and turns and can be very complex.
