The Plot 

Taken 4 will require an interesting plot if the makers want to expand the trilogy. They cannot show one person getting kidnapped again and again. In the first part of the movie, Bryan Mill’s 17-year-old daughter was kidnapped while she was vacationing in France. The second installment began where the first ended. The families of the kidnappers kidnap Lenore, Mill’s wife to get revenge on him. They attempt to kidnap his daughter again. In the third and final installment, Bryan tries to clear his name after his wife is murdered.

In the TV series, Clive Standen played a younger Bryan Mills. Brooklyn Sudano plays Asha, a well-educated, attractive student from an upper-middle-class family. She meets Bryan when she is studying.

Is Liam Neeson Returning for Taken 4?

The short answer is, we don’t know. The long answer is there are conflicting reports regarding the production status of Taken 4. Liam Neeson aka Bryan Mills has neither confirmed nor denied whether he is returning with the fourth movie in the saga. Fans can take this as good news or bad news. This is because nobody has explicitly confirmed the cancellation of Taken 4 therefore we could get an announcement regarding its production status in 2023.

There are also reports confirmed by various media outlets have confirmed that Taken 4 is in production. But despite these confirmation reports, we haven’t gotten an official confirmation from Liam Neeson/ other cast members of the movie or the production house itself.

Why Was Taken Season 3 Cancelled?

The simple answer for why Taken Season 3 was canceled was because of decreasing viewership. Even after it was eventually brought back, Taken Season 2 didn’t get better in terms of viewership, and it was yanked from the schedule altogether. There were also showrunner and cast shakeups in the time between Season 1 and Season 2, though it’s unclear if that had anything to do with the show’s demise.

How many Liam Neeson’s Taken movies are there?

Liam Neeson has starred in a total of 3 Taken movies. He has played the character of Bryan Mills, the protagonist of the movie, who we follow throughout the franchise. But the Taken movies are not stand-alone. Other than 3 Taken movies, Starring Liam Neeson, there is also the Taken Tv Series. The Taken tv series is a prequel/origin story for the movies where we follow a young Bryan Mills played by Clive Standen. The Tv series wasn’t as successful as it movie counterpart and therefore was canceled only after airing two seasons.
