The most expensive science fiction and action series of all time will have season 2: Amazon Prime Video gets its long-awaited franchise and officially renews ‘Citadel’

Amazon has just made official the renovation of ‘Citadel’ for a season 2 just hours before the premiere of its season 1 finale -at the time it was already said that it was counted on, but the official announcement has not come until now-. From the beginning, the intention was for it to become the new great Prime Video franchise and this is the definitive confirmation of that.

The fourth most watched series on Amazon

Additionally, Amazon has clarified that ‘Citadel’ is the fourth most watched series on the platform internationally, rising to second place if only Prime Video viewings outside the United States are taken into account. Come on, it hasn’t been so successful there and we’ll see if that ends up turning against him later.

Yes indeed, jennifer salkehead of Amazon Studios, has assured that ‘Citadel’ is “a global phenomenon” and has announced that to celebrate its success The first episode is going to be made available for free this weekend.. In the United States it can be enjoyed through Freevee for a month, while in the rest of the world it can only be seen without the need for a subscription until May 28 on Prime Video.

Amazon puffs out the success of 'Citadel' on Prime Video but it has a trick and we could be facing another case like 'The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power'

david weil he will continue to act as showrunner of ‘Citadel’ in season 2 and in principle there are returns of Richard Madden, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Stanley Tucci and Lesley Manville. I say initially because they might surprise us with a death in the remaining episode of the first installment, but I wouldn’t count on it.

The great novelty of season 2 is that there will be changes in the direction, since joe russo will be in charge of the staging of all its episodes. We will have to see what he and his brother meant by listening to their fans…
