The Russo brothers’ spy thriller has been renewed for a second season on Prime Video and will be directed in full by Joe Russo.
Starting May 26th, the first episode of Citadel will be available for free on Prime Video for a limited time, and the first season will be fully available on the platform.
Prime Video today announced the renewal of the worldwide hit series Citadel for a second season, with Joe Russo as director of all episodes and executive producer David Weil as showrunner. The spy thriller, starring Richard Madden, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Lesley Manville, and Stanley Tucci, continues to enjoy great success around the world, including in India, Italy, Brazil, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States. This is the second most-watched original series on Prime Video outside the United States and the fourth most-watched worldwide. The last episode of the first season will be available for Prime Video customers starting this Friday, May 26th.
Additionally, the first episode of Citadel will also be streamable without an Amazon Prime membership in over 240 countries and territories from Friday, May 26th through Sunday, May 28th.
“Citadel is truly a global phenomenon,” says Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon and MGM Studios. “Our goal has always been to create a new franchise based on new intellectual property that will grow Prime Video’s international audience. This series has attracted a large number of new international customers to Prime Video. Its large worldwide audience is a testament to the extraordinary vision of Joe and Anthony Russo, the incredible talent of Richard Madden, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Lesley Manville, and Stanley Tucci, and the tireless work of the creative team, cast, and entire production team. We are excited to share the first episode of Citadel worldwide without a subscription and confirm that the series will return for a second season.”
“AGBO is excited to embark on this new era of the spyverse with Jen, Vernon, and the entire Amazon team,” said executive producers Anthony and Joe Russo. “Citadel’s groundbreaking storytelling has lit the way for an incredible worldwide collaboration with creatives in front of and behind the camera.”
It’s been 8 years since Citadel ended. The world’s independent spy agency charged with ensuring everyone’s safety has been destroyed by agents of Manticore, a powerful syndicate that manipulates the world from the shadows. After Citadel’s demise, elite agents Mason Kane (Richard Madden) and Nadia Sinh (Priyanka Chopra Jones) try to escape with their lives, but they lose all their memories. Since then, they have gone undetected, building new lives with new identities, unaware of their past. One night, Mason is tracked down by former Citadel colleague Bernard Orlick (Stanley Tucci) who desperately needs his help to stop Manticore from establishing a new world order. Mason seeks out his former colleague, Nadia, and the two spies embark on a mission that takes them across the globe in an effort to stop the Manticore, while also grappling with a relationship built on secrets, lies, and a dangerous and sometimes eternal love.
Citadel arrives via Amazon Studios and AGBO from the Russo brothers, with Anthony Russo, Joe Russo, Mike Larocca, Angela Russo-Otstot, and Scott Nemes executive producing for AGBO, and David Weil serving as showrunner and executive producer. Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg serve as executive producers for Midnight Radio. Newton Thomas Sigel and Patrick Moran are also executive producers.
Citadel is the debut of a global franchise. Citadel and the spin-offs, all produced by the Russo brothers’ AGBO, traverse a world with interconnected stories. Each Citadel series is created, produced, and directed in one region and stars great talent, forming a different global franchise. Currently, spin-offs are being filmed in Italy and India, starring Matilda De Angelis, Varun Dhawan, and Samantha Ruth Prabhu, respectively.
