Why Is There No Season Two Of Deception?

The decision to discontinue the show was made due to the decline in ratings of Deception’s first season. Seeing that:

  • It only averaged a score of 0.71 in the 18-49 demographic, and
  • It just gathered up to 3.51 million viewers.

Which is quite low as compared to other ABC’s shows like “Scandal” which was watched by more than eight million viewers in total.
