Citadel – Series Review

Citadel is an Amazon Studios series from the Russo Brothers.

Amazon Studios has now released three episodes of its latest action-packed series, Citadel. It is a global thriller produced by the Russo Brothers, best known for directing Marvel’s Avengers franchise. The show features a star-studded cast, including Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Richard Madden, and Stanley Tucci. New episodes air every following Friday. The will debut on May 26th, 2023.


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 to stop Manticore while contending with a relationship built on secrets, lies, and a dangerous-yet-undying love.

This show delivers an adrenaline-fueled thriller that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. It is a cinematic experience offered from the comfort of your couch. The unique blend of action, drama, humor, and espionage will leave you craving all the episodes simultaneously. The story and international setting are grand as it takes you around the world. One of the most remarkable aspects of the creation of this show is that there will be versions of the show being produced in India, Italy, and Mexico. In addition, they will have their own local cast and storylines. This multi-layered approach will add to the show’s global appeal and provide viewers with a unique viewing experience.


I give Citadel 3.5 out of 5 stars. It is fun entertainment from the comfort of your couch. This series breathes life back into the action-spy thriller genre. Read more Reviews on Nerdtropolis and Subscribe to our YouTube.
