Citadel has been given the green light for Season 2.

The Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Richard Madden starrer will return for another season on Prime Video after it became its most-watched new original series outside of the U.S.

Joe Russo will return as a director for the upcoming season alongside David Weil as the showrunner.

Describing it as a “truly global phenomenon,” the head of Amazon and MGM Studios, Jennifer Salke dished on the monumental impact of the spy-thriller.

“Our goal was always to create a new franchise rooted in original IP that would grow Prime Video’s international audience. This show has drawn an outsize number of new international customers to Prime Video.

“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,” she continued.

“Given the overwhelming number of our customers who have embraced this show, we are not only thrilled to share the premiere episode of Citadel globally without membership, but also confirm that the series will return for a second season,” Salke added.
