The series stars Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Richard Madden
At a press conference in Mumbai on Monday, Gaurav Gandhi, vice president of Asia Pacific, Prime Video, explained in detail about their upcoming sci-fi spy thriller series Citadel. Present at the event were lead actors of the show Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Richard Madden and also Sushant Sreeram, the country director for Prime Video, India.
“Citadel is the beginning of a new, ambitious, landmark franchise—one built on a completely original IP—with interconnected stories that traverse the globe. This is an amazing way to create a really diverse global community of storytellers and make entertainment truly borderless. The popularity of the genre, the novelty of the concept and the magic of the Russo Brothers, David Weil, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Richard Madden, and everyone else involved with Citadel give us confidence that audiences will love this truly global series,” said Gaurav.
Citadel will have an Indian version, too, starring Varun Dhawan and Samantha Ruth Prabhu. It will be helmed by Raj & DK.
“With Citadel, we are building an interconnected universe that takes borderless entertainment up a notch. Each Citadel series is locally created, produced, and filmed in-region, and stars top talent, forming a distinct global franchise,” added Sushant.
Created by Russo Brothers and showrunner David Weil, Citadel will premiere on Prime Video on April 28 with two episodes and one episode launching weekly through May 26.
