It’s official: NBC has chucked the deuces to its freshman drama “Deception” after just one brief season.
According to reports, the network canceled the series, which premiered on January 7th with 6 million viewers and ended with an average of 3.5 million viewers, due to low ratings.
Star Meagan Good seemed to respond to the bad news quite well. She wrote this message for fans:

Co-star Laz Alonso added, “Thanks 2 all those who loved, supported & fought 4 #Deception!!!#BestFansEver.”
Before the show’s cancelation, it was one of two network dramas that featured Black female lead characters. The other series is ABC’s “Scandal” starring Kerry Washington, of course.
