What is Citadel about? 

Amazon’s official synopsis reads: “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.

The series follows two former Citadel spies who reunite to stop a powerful syndicate named Manticore

“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.”

Has Citadel been renewed for a second season?

Yes! It’s been reported that Citadel is being renewed for a second season, however, as deals are still being finalized, there has not been an official confirmation – watch this space! Given that the show has already become the second most popular series in Amazon’s history, it’s more likely than not that Mason and Nadia will return for another mission.
