Citadel Season 1: Release Date, Plot Details, Trailer & Where To Watch


The Russo Brothers (Avengers: Endgame) are the creators of this upcoming spy drama that will be landing on Amazon Prime Video very soon. If you’re looking for an action-packed series that takes place in exotic locations around the world, then this might be the next show to add to your watchlist.

Here’s everything we know about Citadel so far.

What is Citadel about?

This is the official plot synopsis:

“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 (Richard Madden) and Nadia Sinh (Priyanka Chopra Jonas) 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 (Stanley Tucci), 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.”

Expect action, intrigue, and a little bit of romance when the series lands on its expected release date.

When will Citadel be released?

The first two episodes of Citadel will premiere on Prime Video Friday 28th April. New episodes will then follow weekly until this first season of the show concludes on Friday 26th May.

How many episodes will Citadel have?

Citadel will have 6 episodes but the story won’t end after the season finale. Amazon Studios and The Russo Brothers have plans to tell interconnected stories to the first season of Citadel which will take place around the world, with acting talent from each country playing a pivotal role in the show. Citadel: India and Citadel: Italy have already been confirmed.

Who stars in Citadel?

Game of Thrones star Richard Madden and Bollywood superstar Priyanka Chopra Jonas (who will soon be seen in the romantic comedy Love Again) take on the roles of the two mind-wiped agents who reunite to take on the mighty Manticore.

Joining them in the cast is Stanley Tucci as Citadel spy Bernard Orlick and Danish actor Roland Møller (Medieval) as a recently freed Manticore agent who wants revenge on the man who put him away – Madden’s character, Mason Kane!

The cast list also includes Lesley Manville (Mrs Harris Goes To Paris) as a dangerous British diplomat who may pose a threat to the Citadel agents.
