Amazon’s Troubled Drama ‘Citadel’ Renewed Early for 2nd Season


Citadel, the expensive and troubled drama from the Russo brothers that has been in the works since 2018, is getting a second chapter. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the series starring Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Richard Madden has been renewed for a second season ahead of its April 28 debut. It’s unclear how many episodes season two will feature; the freshman run will consist of a mere six episodes. The news comes after the series debuted with a clip and keynote this month at South by Southwest.


Amazon and reps for the Russos’ AGBO declined to comment as sources say deals have not yet been finalized.


The global event series was first announced in mid-2018 when Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke unveiled plans for the “large-scope, multi-layered international event series.” From Avengers directors Joe and Anthony Russo, Citadel has already spawned an Indian adaptation as Amazon hopes the spy drama can become an all-important fully owned franchise for the streamer.
