Citadel’s Plot: What Can We Expect From Amazon Video’s Original?
Amazon Prime Video recently released the first trailer for the program. Citadel was unveiled in 2018, with a statement revealing that it will have several satellite spin-offs in local languages in addition to the primary series. These spinoffs are expected to take place in China, Mexico and other locations. Regarding the same, Amazon Video added:
“All local programming is intended to enhance the overall entertainment experience and will allow viewers to immerse themselves in an intended complex universe.”
The story revolves around Citadel, an autonomous global espionage organization whose mission is to ensure everyone’s protection and safety. However, there is a time jump as it is revealed that eight years before the current events of the show, a strong gang known as Manticore has driven out the Intelligence Service and is now influencing the world from the shadows. Denizens of the Citadel were robbed of their memories and now live new lives under new names.
The plot begins when Mason, a Citadel member, is tracked down by a former colleague, Bernard Orlick. Only Citadel can stop Manticore from creating a new world order. Mason then contacts Nadia, a former spy partner, to embark on a mission to save the world.
What the Russo siblings have to say about the new show
The show’s main creators Anthony and Joseph Russo praised it. According to Anthony Russo:
“We are dealing with a huge spectacle. With so many individuals involved, moving, growing, changing and developing can be challenging. Due to the size and complexity of the project, it took a long time.”
Joseph Russo went on to say:
“There are so many wonderful stories to tell in different underserved parts of the world. Because of the ambitions, it has been a very sensitive but beautiful process, and one of the most satisfying of our lives. This program has given us the opportunity to raise a new family around the world to tell a great story in a way that has never been done before.”
Citadel was founded by Josh Appelbaum and Bryan Oh. Anthony Russo, Joseph Russo, Mike Larocca, Angela Russo-Otstot, Scott Nemes, David Weil, Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, Scott Rosenberg, Newton Thomas Sigel and Patrick Moran are among the executive producers.
The program was shot in cities around the world, including Atlanta, London, Morocco and Valencia. The murder took place at the height of the Covid-19 epidemic. Priyanka Chopra Jonas characterized the show’s shooting as “extremely difficult” given the devastation caused by the epidemic. In addition to the program, an Indian series based on Chopra Jonas’ character Nadia and starring Varun Dhawan and Samantha Ruth Prabhu is currently in development.
