UPDATE: NBC has officially cancelled Deception last May 9, 2013. Read article here.

Hi there Deception fan, do you want the peacock network to renew the revenge-y Monday night drama? On this article, we’ve amassed the facts regarding the past and current status of the freshman soap. Is it still on the bubble, will it be cancelled or renewed for season 2? Keep reading to find out!

NBC introduced viewers to Deception this year to fill-in for Revolution’s hiatus period. The show’s premise resembles ABC’s Sunday sudser Revenge where an old friend of a murdered wealthy woman went incognito to investigate the mystery of her death. Based from the review I’ve read about the premiere, it seemed that the show didn’t bear the potential of a television smash. Apparently, the supporting characters were trite and the protagonist (Meagan Good) doesn’t incarnate the edgy, threatening TV series heroine (read: Emily Thorne).

The ratings at the beginning of the season were weak. The premiere drew 5.66 million total viewers, with a 2.0 rating on adults 18-49. Week two slipped 20% down with 4.14 million total of returning viewers. The succeeding weeks were unimpressive and kept falling. However as the season draws nigh to the thirteenth episode finale, it managed to stay steady with a 1.1 rating on the same demo (3.3 mil).

Some say that NBC could have done better with Deception if it was promoted with a greater scale as they did with the musical, Smash. This subject is moot since despite of its weak marketing strategy, the vindictive drama has registered a thriving fanbase. They thought that the series may have started slow but it is definitely worth sticking around for.

The stars, Meagan Good and Laz Alonso recently spoke to ET where they expressed their hopes of a season 2 pick-up. They were both enthusiastic as they discussed the thickening storyline and the upcoming trajectories set for their characters.

In conclusion, Deception has the potential of being the next Revenge/Scandal of NBC. It has delivered steady numbers, a reasonable amount of supporters and a story that may unravel more interesting twist and character dynamics. However, the ratings are simply below par compared to other NBC’s top tier programs.

Thus far, we predict that Deception is ‘certain to be cancelled’ by May of 2013.

Do you want NBC to renew Deception for a season 2?

    Renew Deception for sure! I have been missing this show every since the season final. I enjoyed everything about this show and the potential alone is enough for renewal. Come on NBC, I need more Deception!

  • Suzyq4U

    Renew Deception, this is the only network show I watch. Come on Wes Brown is hot sexy and the chemistry he has with Meagan makes Julian and Joanna the Hottest couple on primetime. I mean have you seen this duo!! NBC needs to be promoting this hot pairing. Either way there are so many fans now who are all for a new Deception season. Such a guilty pleasure this show is! Every time you think you figured it all out…BAM another twist!! I love shows like this so NBC needs to keep this show on the lineup so much more to tell especially with JOLIAN!!!! Hot pair!!!!

  • SMillage

    Oh come on!! NBC needs to renew! How can they not Renew Deception? It has been off for about a month now and I am patiently waiting for the return. Please Renew, I need the Deception fix…find out what will happen with MIA, More Eddie Spaghetti, Julian exposing his dad’s hands in his mother’s death. I can go on because as you can tell there is more to reveal on Deception. Renew of course.
