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.
