I wish we were wrong about this one, but it appears it’s a wrap for one of our favorite NBC shows. In March, we reported the not so good TV news for actors Laz Alonso and Meagan Good.


TV By the Numbers reported that NBC’s new show, ‘Deception’ was likely to be cancelled. For those that never tuned in, the show was created by Liz Heldens, and its plot centered around a famous socialite named Vivian Bowers, who was found dead in a motel room from what appeared to be a drug overdose.

Last month, we chatted with Laz about rumors that the show was being axed and he explained:

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.

Here’s the interview:

Fast forward to the present day and this week, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that the show had officially been axed. The site reported:
NBC has begun notifying producers of the fate of its current programming. CANCELED: Deception. NBC’s attempt to capture some of the buzz surrounding ABC’s soapy thriller Revenge opened with signs of hope, earning a 2.0 among adults 18-49 and 3.6 million viewers on Mondays. However, theMeagan Good starrer quickly faded, wrapping its 11-episode run with an average of 1.2 in the demo.
After hearing the news, Meagan wrote a personal message to fans:
