We Saw This Coming: NBC Cancels Meagan Good’s ‘Deception’ After One Season
After much speculation regarding the fate of NBC’s primetime soap opera, Deception, the network has officially confirmed that the thriller will not be renewed for a second season, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The murder mystery starring Meagan Good and Laz Alonso had a promising start, earning a 2.0 rating in the 18-49 year old demographic and 3.69 million viewers during the first episode; however, that success quickly diminished, averaging a mere 1.2 by the season finale.
Deception’s suffering ratings have been no secret and greatly contributed to premature reports and rumors of its cancelation. When asked about the rumors last month, actor Laz Alonso responded:
“We will find out in May if we got season 2. We have our fingers crossed, you know Megan and myself. We appreciate all the support we got this year. I mean people love the show and you know we will see what happens. We have good feelings that we will be back for a season 2.”
Once the show’s cancelation was officially confirmed, Meagan took to her Twitter page to break the bad news to fans and express her gratitude for being given the opportunity.
She also shared a message regarding Deception’s cancellation to her Instagram page.
