Taken has a new leader. Variety reports former Person of Interest EP Greg Plageman will be the new showrunner for season two of the NBC TV series.
A prequel to the Liam Neeson film franchise, the action drama stars Clive Standen as a younger Bryan Mills, a former Green Beret who embarks on a quest for vengeance after a major tragedy. The cast also includes Jennifer Beals, Gaius Charles, Brooklyn Sudano, Monique Gabriela Curnen, Michael Irby, James Landry Hébert, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Simu Liu, and Ali Kazami.
Plageman is taking over as showrunner from Alexander Cary, who left Taken at the end of its first season. NBC has ordered 16 episodes for the show’s second season.
From EuropaCorp TV USA president Matthew Gross:
We’re thrilled to bring Greg on to run the show. His enormous talent and vast experience with bold broadcast television is a perfect fit. We look forward to seeing what his vision and direction brings to ‘Taken’ and the Bryan Mills character as we move into the show’s second season.”
What do you think? Did you see season one of Taken? Will you watch season two?
Love, LOVE, LOVE This show…… Anxiously waiting for season two….. So glad that Clive Standen and Jennifer Beals are coming back…!!!!!! YAY !!!!!! <3
Absolutely loved the show !!!! The writing and acting was excellent with a history lesson to boot. Who could ask for more !! I truly hope Starz will reconsider #qualitytelevision
I love the show taken it’s my favorite show I hope it stays on the air for a while cause I love the show and I love the star of the show Clive
I watched all of season One. Very Exciting. Love Standen and Beals.
Can’t wait for Season Two!
I’ll definitely watch season 2. Loved the first season.
My family & I really enjoyed the show Taken. It was interesting and I did not have to cover my eyes like in Criminal Minds serial killers yuk. We watch Taken every week and never watch Criminal Minds
Absolutely. I enjoyed season one and glad it is back for another season.
Watched season 1 and enjoyed the first 4 episodes but from then on I got tired of the star being “a loose cannon.” Will watch season 2 for a few episodes to see how the new person runs the show.
Great show glad it will be back
Most definitely! Really liked season 1.
I really like season 1 I hope season 2 is the same if not better great show
Loved Season One and can’t wait for Season Two. The ensemble of characters that make up this “team” complement each other as if they have been together for years. Will love to see how this show grows. Thanks NBC!
I watched season 1 and will watch season 2. Saw the movie but this is a tv series and that is how I watch it. Hope it builds an audience so it will not be cancelled. That is why it is hard to compare the series to the movie. People are disappointed and stop watching.
This is good news. However, I just keep thinking about POI now.
Yes. I will watch taken. Even though it’s not exactly what the original movie portrayed, it is however a very good and exciting show.
I really enjoyed the show. I can wait fro the second season.
