Even before the release of Citadel on Amazon Prime, the epic spy franchise starring Priyanka Chopra is already switching things up.

According to the California Film Commission, not only has the show been greenlit for a second season, but production will also be relocated to California, as per Deadline.

The Russo Brothers production has been granted a whopping $25 million in tax credits from the Film Commission to film in the Golden State.

The move will also be a good one for the 40-year-old Bollywood star, as it allows her to film close to her home in Encino which she shares with husband Nick Jonas and daughter Malti Marie, one.

Priyanka plays Nadia Sinh to Richard's Mason Kane, two former members of global spy agency Citadel, who had their memories wiped and must reconnect after an old colleague (played by Stanley Tucci) tasks them with a globe-spanning mission to stop the syndicate Manticore.

The premise of the show is in its worldwide expansion, as several other countries are developing their own versions of the show to tie into the main series, such as Italy and India.

Per a press release from the Asia Pacific Premiere of the show in Mumbai, Priyanka expressed her enthusiasm for the franchise, stating: "When Jennifer Salke, who is the head of Amazon Studios, presented Citadel to me, she wanted to create an international, global franchise – an original IP that truly connects the world.

"Amazon strongly believes in diversity; and true diversity is represented internationally, not just by having different skin tones, but also by hearing the way people speak, actually delving into the culture. And this show has incredible ability to span across every country and continent. So, I didn't even know the story and I said yep, doing it."
