The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Prime Video looks to have given an early second season renewal for its spy thriller series Citadel, just over a month before its first season premieres on the streaming service.
The official synopsis for the series is as follows:
Eight years ago, Citadel fell. The independent global spy agency—tasked to uphold the safety and security of all people—was destroyed by operatives of Manticore, a powerful syndicate manipulating the world from the shadows. With Citadel’s fall, elite agents Mason Kane and Nadia Sinh had their memories wiped as they narrowly escaped with their lives. They’ve remained hidden ever since, building new lives under new identities, unaware of their pasts.
Until one night, when Mason is tracked down by his former Citadel colleague, Bernard Orlick, who desperately needs his help to prevent Manticore from establishing a new world order. Mason seeks out his former partner, Nadia, and the two spies embark on a mission that takes them around the world in an effort to stop Manticore, all while contending with a relationship built on secrets, lies, and a dangerous-yet-undying love.
The report states that Amazon and reps of The Russo Brothers’ production company, AGBO, have declined to comment, as sources tell the reporter that deals have not been finalised yet.
David Weil, who took over the showrunner reins from Josh Appelbaum who departed the project, will remain as showrunner for the second season, and the Russo Bros. look set to direct multiple episodes, though how long the second season could be remains to be seen.
The first season of Citadel, which premieres on Prime Video on the 28th April, stars Richard Madden, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Stanley Tucci, Lesley Manville, Osy Ikhile, Ashleigh Cummings, Roland Møller and Caoilinn Springal.
