NBC cancels 'Taken' after two seasons

May 11 (UPI) — NBC has canceled its action-drama series Taken starring Clive Standen and Jennifer Beals after two seasons.

Taken acted as a prequel to the film series of the same name starring Liam Neeson. Standen starred as a younger version of Neeson’s character Bryan Mills, as he becomes a deadly CIA operative who is recruited by Beals.

NBC recently pulled Taken off their schedule, hinting that a cancellation was imminent.

Producers EuropaCorp TV USA and Universal Television will be shopping Taken around as they search for a new platform to host the series, Variety reported.
