Will Taken 4 Ever Happen?

For his part, Neeson has already commented on whether or not there will be a Taken 4. While making an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in 2016 (via Entertainment Weekly), the actor was asked about the possibility of a fourth movie. He said definitely that there wasn’t going to be one, adding, “There’s only so many times your daughter can be taken […] Actually if we do have another it will be, ‘Please can you take my daughter?'”

That might be harsh for fans of the franchise to hear, but he makes a good point. As we saw with the TV series, even though the franchise continued, it did so by going back in time to find new setups to hook viewers. Critics were also apparently in agreement about Neeson’s statement. The second and third movies got pretty lousy reviews, with some citing the contrived plots of those later installments as big marks against them. While an action franchise like Taken doesn’t necessarily rely on good reviews from critics to keep itself afloat, when the third movie only gets a 12% on Rotten Tomatoes, it certainly puts a question mark over the possibility of more releases.

And even though the show changed up the formula a bit, it also wasn’t exactly met with critical praise, either. Worse still, although the pilot episode of the series was watched by 7.45 million viewers, putting it up there with The Bachelor and The Big Bang Theory, the second season premiere only netted a viewership of 2.79 million.

So, it’s not entirely surprising that the Taken TV series was canceled and the film franchise was put on ice. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s dead and gone.
