    My sister got me hooked on this show!!! Every week gets better and better… and FINALLY Joanna & Julian are together!!!! Please give this show a chance…let’s get a season 2!!!!

  2. Mario says

    I will admit that I have seen Meagan Good in other things and I was not a fan and I did not believe she could pull this role off. But I have been hooked every since the first season I have been trying to figure out who killed Vivian and the only people I am sure had nothing to do with it are JoAnna, Mia and Audrey..I’m left in suspense EVERY week..Please please PLLLLEEEAAASSSEEE do not cancel this show..i have stopped watching Revenge for Deception.

  3. Shawanda says

    I really like the show, I also watch Revenge on
    ABC. I don’t understand why they compare
    the two shows, they are totally different. Deception
    Is getting better every week, with more
    secrets to be uncovered. I don’t belive the
    Network is giving the show a chance, at least
    let the show have an ending for the viewers
    you do have. I watch the show the Event on
    NBC and that was canceled and felt like I spent
    weeks watching with out seeing the main event.

    I Love this show. Was just talking to my co-worker about it and we were saying we hope they don’t leave us hanging and cancel, because we gotta find out who killed Vivian. We loved this show. We are hooked. We already have our favorites and it hasn’t even been a hole season yet. Please, give it a chance, maybe even try it on Wednesay like before Law & Order: SVU, but don’t cancel it.

    I love the show . Love Megan and Wes together. Please don’t take off my show. Monday is my favorite day of the week now :)

  6. caterina lim says

    Please keep the show. It is getting better with each episode. The suspense, mystery and the interaction between stars esp. Edward & Robert & Sofia as adysfunctional family is simply out of this world. Julian & Joanna on the other hand gives hope for enduring love. PLEASE RENEW

  7. Stacey Williams says

    This is a great series that has great storyline, actors and overall plot. Hope it returns it is addictive.

  8. LaShawna says

    Please, please keep this show. I love all the twists and turns, the show really gets better every episode. The cast is great and the acting is amazing; there is no other show like this one!!! GIVE THE SHOW A CHANCE, THEY DON’T DISAPPOINT!!!
