‘Citadel’ Trailer: Richard Madden And Priyanka Chopra Jonas Are Vengeance-Seeking Spies

As we’ve seen with their hugely-expensive Lord of the Rings series, Amazon has no problem throwing around big money for the right series. And clearly, they think Citadel, the new spy series from the Russo Brothers, is worth every penny of the reported $250M budget.

Starring Richard Madden and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Citadel stars a pair of memory-wiped spies who have been brought back into action to discover the truth behind the destruction of their former agency, known as Citadel. And this mission will be a globe-hopping affair, taking the elite agents to Mexico, Spain, the Alps, and more. Of course, there will be hot steamy romance in-between all of the espionage stuff.

The series also stars Stanley Tucci, Lesley Manville, Osy Ikhile, Ashleigh Cummings, Roland Møller, and Caoilinn Springall.

Citadel hits Prime Video on April 28th with the first two episodes.

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.
