‘Citadel’ Renewed For Second Season On Prime Video

2 mins read

Citadel has just been renewed for a second season on Prime Video, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This is ahead of the series’ April 28 premiere on the streaming network.

The action-packed science fiction series has been an expensive endeavour for the streaming service, and its pre-emptive renewal of the series for a second season certainly illustrates Amazon’s confidence in the series.

The series comes from the Russo Brothers, who have previously worked on such projects as Avengers: Infinity War. Citadel has been in the works since 2018 and was originally billed as a “multi-layered international event series” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The plan for the series includes a local language spin-off series in Spain, Mexico, the Italian Alps, and India. The first season’s budget originally sat at a whopping $160 million dollars, but re-shoots added $75 million to the total.

This drama has not scared Amazon away from renewing the series, however, even as the show has not yet premiered.

The series explores the agents in their new lives as they attempt to bring the group back from the dead, and a first look at this ambitious premise was shown in a recent trailer, as we previously reported.

There is a lot on the line for the series, as it is the second most expensive show ever made, just behind Prime Video’s other large-scale series project, The Rings of Power.
