There's no longer a mystery surrounding NBC's mystery drama "Deception." It's been canceled.
The series, which premiered in midseason, did not draw a large audience when it started and failed to engage enough viewers.
The show starred Meagan Good as Joanna Locasto, a San Francisco narcotics detective who investigates a murder that has been linked to the Bowers, a powerful and wealthy family that once employed Joanna's mother as a maid.
"Deception" was one of only two network dramas that featured an African American female in a lead role. The other series, "Scandal" starring Kerry Washington, is a hit ABC drama.
