Prime Video announced today that Citadel has been renewed for a second season. The news comes less than a month after the spy thriller's premiere garnered big numbers for the streamer. It now ranks as Prime Video's second most-watched new original series outside the U.S. and fourth most-watched worldwide.

"Citadel is a truly global phenomenon," said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon and MGM Studios. "Our goal was always to create a new franchise rooted in original IP that would grow Prime Video's international audience. This show has drawn an outsize number of new international customers to Prime Video. Its massive worldwide debut audience is a testament to Joe and Anthony Russo's remarkable vision, the incredible talents of Richard Madden, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Lesley Manville and Stanley Tucci, and the tireless work of the creative teams, cast, and crew."

In Citadel, an independent global spy agency tasked with upholding the safety of all people was destroyed eight years ago by operatives of Manticore, a powerful syndicate that manipulates the world from the shadows. With Citadel's fall, elite agents Mason Kane and Nadia Sinh had their memories wiped and narrowly escaped with their lives. Remaining hidden ever since, they have built new lives, unaware of their pasts. When Mason is tracked down by a former Citadel colleague, desperately needing his help to prevent Manticore from establishing a new world order, he and his former partner embark on a global mission in an effort to stop it.
