Bryan Mills (Clive Standen), Christina Hart (Jennifer Beals) and the rest of ODNI crew are returning for another season of “Taken.”

NBC renewed the action thriller for a 16-episode Season 2, but Alex Cary — who developed the prequel to the “Taken” film trilogy and served as showrunner and executive producer in Season 1 — is leaving the series. A new showrunner is expected to be named soon.

According to Deadline, Cary’s exit from the show is amicable. The website also reported that the series will likely adopt more procedural elements in the vein of NBC’s “The Blacklist” and “Blindspot” for its sophomore run.

Shortly after news broke that “Taken” was renewed for Season 2, cast members Beals, James Landry Hebert, Brooklyn Sudano, Jennifer Marsala and Simu Liu took to social media to react to the season renewal. See their Instagram and Twitter posts below:

Although “Taken” has not been a ratings standout, the show’s viewership has been consistent. According to Variety, the show’s 10-episode Season 1 averaged a 1.0 rating and 5.1 million viewers in its Monday, 10 p.m. EST timeslot. But despite its modest ratings, the show — which is a co-production between EuropaCorp TV USA and Universal Television — has done great internationally, making money for NBCUniversal thanks to its association with the blockbuster global movie franchise of the same name, starring Liam Neeson. The TV series is also relatively inexpensive to produce, making the Season 2 renewal more unsurprising.

In Season 1 finale of “Taken,” Bryan and his fellow ODNI field agents traveled to Mexico to rescue Asha (Sudano) who got kidnapped by Mejia (Romano Orzari). After finding out that Mejia was throwing some sort of party at a certain mansion, Bryan and his team covertly rushed to the area to save his girlfriend once and for all.

The celebration was cut short when Mejia learned of the presence of the authorities in the area. When chaos ensued, Asha ran for her life. But she stopped in the kitchen after Mejia shot at her. Mejia put his gun away, allowing Asha to attack him with a knife. Mejia managed to get the knife from Asha and wrestled it to her throat as Bryan arrived. To his horror, Bryan witnessed Mejia slit Asha’s throat.

Bryan left Asha in John’s (Charles) trusting hands to chase Mejia, only to find him cornered by Mexican forces. Although the authorities seemed to have the situation under control, Bryan still shot Mejia clean in the head as revenge for killing his sister at the beginning of the season. After killing Mejia, Bryan was taken by the Mexican authorities and was last seen raising his head in a prison cell.

“The very last frame of the first season leaves Bryan in a very, very awkward predicament. Awkward isn’t the right word [but] the way it ends, Bryan will never be the same,” Standen told Global News of how the final moments in the Season 1 finale will affect Bryan moving forward.
