TAKEN -- "Leah" Episode 108 -- Pictured: Clive Standen as Bryan Mills -- (Photo by: Panagiotis Pantazidis/NBC)Bryan Mills' very special set of skills won't be needed anymore at NBC. The network has canceled "Taken" after two seasons.

The action drama was a prequel to the Liam Neeson trilogy of movies, with Clive Standen playing a younger version of the former Green Beret. After a devastating personal tragedy, Mills was recruited by the CIA and began developing the very special set of skills that he deployed in the movies.

Things didn't look good for "Taken" when NBC moved the show in April from Fridays to Saturdays. The show averaged just 4.4 million viewers this season.

The producers are hoping to shop the drama around at other outlets.
