NBC has renewed their freshman series TAKEN for a second season of 16 episodes.

In addition, it’s been announced that Alex Cary, who developed the TV series adaption and served as executive producer/showrunner on the first season has departed. A search for a new show runner is currently underway.

This thriller drama, which serves as a prequel to Luc Besson’s hit movie franchise, follows the origin story of a younger, hungrier and former Green Beret Bryan Mills (Clive Standen) as he deals with a personal tragedy that shakes his world. As he fights to overcome the trauma of the incident and exact revenge, Mills is pulled into a career as a deadly CIA operative, a job that awakens his very particular, and very dangerous, set of skills. In 30 years, this character is destined to become the Bryan Mills in the Taken films starring Liam Neeson.

Standen is joined alongside Jennifer Beals, Gaius Charles, Brooklyn Sudano, Monique Gabriela Curnen, Michael Irby, James Landry Hébert and Jose Pablo Cantillo.
