If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” also comes with both its extensive on-demand library (which has many shows available after they air) and 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).

Taken is a crime drama based on the trilogy of the same name. In the series, Clive Standen stars as a younger version of Bryan Mills, who was played by Liam Neeson in the hit franchise.
The series received a straight-to-order request in September 2015, and premiered on NBC in February 2017. The show was renewed for a second season on May 9, 2017. On May 11, NBC announced that June 30, tonight, will be the show’s final episode.
TVLine reports that the cancellation does not come as a huge shock– this season, the show has averaged a .4 demo with 2.8 total weekly viewers, which is down dramatically compared to its first season– a 1.0 demo and 5.1 million viewers.
As the show’s star, Clive Standen has held the reins, and navigated the plot’s many twists and turns seamlessly. Ahead of the second season, Standen gave an interview with Collider in which he was asked about jumping from Vikings to Taken. He said, “Everything is exciting to me. Life is not a dress rehearsal. Every choice you make in life is a chance. You never know how anything is going to turn out. I remember sitting there with Gustaf Skarsgard, when we finished filming Episode 1 of Vikings, and we were both going, “We love it, and that’s what we signed up for, but we don’t think anyone is gonna like this.””
Standen continued, “Everything is a chance. You’ve just gotta enjoy everything you do. That’s what I try to do. Acting is so full of rejection. You spend so much time losing out on jobs you want or getting jobs you don’t want, but then you meet so many actors who get to set and just complain, the whole time, so why do it? You just have to take the rough with the smooth. Work begets work, but I work really hard.”
