After its success on Amazon Prime, the spy thriller series Citadel starring Priyanka Chopra and Richard Madden has been given the green light for season 2.
Directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, Citadel was highly praised by audiences worldwide, becoming the second most-viewed show on Amazon Prime.
The decision to renew the show for another season was made due to the overwhelming response the first season received.
The production for season 2 of Citadel is expected to start soon. While the first season was directed by the Russo brothers, Newton Thomas Sigel and Jessica Yu, the next season will be solely directed by Joe Russo. David Weil will continue as the showrunner and Anthony Russo as the executive producer.
According to Pinkvilla, the official statement from the creators confirms the comeback of Citadel with season 2. “Citadel is a truly global phenomenon. We always aimed to create a new franchise rooted in original IP that would grow Prime Video’s international audience. 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.”
