After three movies it seems the we are still set to see more of Bryan Mills after a series order was handed to a Taken prequel, mini series.

NBC have picked up the series, which saw Liam Neeson first took the title role back in 2008, and has since gone on to spin 2 further sequels.

The TV series is being described as a prequel rather than a reboot and will be set several years before the events of the first film. The original move followed Bryan Mills a CIA operative on a mission to save his daughter’s life. NBC’s series will be set in the modern day and follow a young Bryan Mills as he works for the company and will reveal how he acquired the skills showcased in the 2008 feature film. The exact size of the episode order has not been determined, though it is expected to be at least ten 1 hour episodes.

The adaption of popular movies has become a common occurrence with movies such as Minority report, Uncle buck, Rush hour and Training day all being given full series orders.

NBC Universal are currently on the hunt for a writer/showrunner to take the rains of the project.

Neeson will not be returning to the role although it will be set in present day, it will see Mills as a younger man prior to having children or a wife.

But fans of seeing Neeson take on the role in action movies will see him in action movie Revenge which is set to premier in 2017.

More on this as we have it.
