Taken Officially Taken Out by NBC

The prequel spin-off has been canceled after two seasons

Liam Mathews

Taken has been officially canceled by NBC after two seasons, TVLine reports.

The action series based on the Liam Neeson movie trilogy was already all but canceled after being removed from NBC's Friday night schedule for a month and moved to Saturday nights to be burned off. It will return for its final three episodes on May 26, with the series finale airing June 9.

It premiered in early 2017 to lackluster reviews, but it performed solidly enough in its post-The Voice Monday time slot to earn a second season. But it declined sharply after the move to Fridays for Season 2.

It stars Clive Standen as a younger version of Bryan Mills, the character played by Liam Neeson in the movies. Jennifer Beals co-stars. The rest of the cast was replaced between Seasons 1 and 2.
