The global hit series Citadel has been renewed for a second season by Prime Video, with Joe Russo directing every episode and executive producer David Weil returning as showrunner.
The spy thriller, starring Richard Madden and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, as well as Lesley Manville and Stanley Tucci, continues to have international success in countries such as India, Italy, Brazil, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It is Prime Video’s second most-watched new original series outside of the United States and the fourth most-watched globally.
“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. 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. 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.”
“AGBO is thrilled to embark on this next phase of the spyverse with Jen, Vernon, and the entire team at Amazon,” said executive producers Anthony and Joe Russo. “The innovative storytelling of Citadel has paved the way for an incredible, worldwide collaboration with creatives in front of and behind the camera.”
Beginning Friday, May 26, all episodes of Citadel’s first season will be available to Prime Video subscribers.
