Amazon Prime Videos has renewed Priyanka Chopra and Richard Madden's spy thriller, Citadel, for a second season, reported Deadline. Joe Russo is set to direct every episode of Season 2 and David Weil will be returning as showrunner on the series, which also features Lesley Manville and Stanley Tucci.
Citadel is produced by Amazon Studios and the Russo Brothers' AGBO. The first season premiered on Prime Video globally in 40 languages. “Citadel is a truly global phenomenon,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon and MGM Studios.
“Our goal was always to create a new franchise rooted in original IP that would grow Prime Video’s international audience. This show has drawn an outsize number of new international customers to Prime Video," she went on to add. "Its massive worldwide debut audience is a testament to Joe and Anthony Russo’s remarkable vision, the incredible talents of Richard Madden, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Lesley Manville and Stanley Tucci, and the tireless work of the creative teams, cast, and crew."
The Prime Video head further added, "Given the overwhelming number of our customers who have embraced this show, we are not only thrilled to share the premiere episode of Citadel globally without membership, but also confirm that the series will return for a second season.”
Citadel follows the story of two elite agents, Mason Kane (Madden) and Nadia Sinh (Chopra), who build new lives under new identities after narrowly escaping their lives from the independent global spy agency Citadel. However, they are tracked down by their former colleague, Bernard Orlick (Tucci), who desperately needs their help to prevent rival agency Manticore from establishing a new world order.
