Fans are using social media to request Netflix to revive their beloved show, Deception. This is months after ABC ended Deception's first season. Here’s what we know about why the show was cancelled, whether Netflix could revive it and how you can help make it so.
ABC is now removing some of the lowest performing shows from their catalogue. DesignatedSurvivor was the worst-performing show in their catalog, and Netflix has recently acquired it as an Original.
This series is about the FBI and a magician who help them to solve their crimes. It is similar to White Collar, which was recently removed from Netflix.
Although the show was broadcast on ABC, it was produced and distributed in part by Warner Brothers. Netflix is currently working with Warner Brothers on several projects, including Sabrina.
Netflix has not yet released the show in any country.
When ABC canned 7 shows earlier this year, it didn’t give reasons for each show. It is usually due to poor critical reception, or worse, low viewing figures.
The show is popular with fans who believe it would be a great fit for Netflix. It may replace White Collar, which was dropped by USA Network in January. Crime procedurals are still very popular on the network.
There are many ways to get shows renewed, but one thing is key: Make your voice heard. Twitter fans are using social media to make it happen. Some of the most popular hashtags are #SaveDeception or #PickUpDeception.
The official method of asking Netflix for shows can be used using the title request function.
You can also sign the largest petition for the show’s renewal which has been pitched to Amazon, Hulu and Netflix.
Let us know your thoughts. Do you think Netflix should pick up Deception for a second season. We'd love to hear from you in the comments.
