Amazon Prime’s new series, The Citadel, looks to take Hollywood by storm with Priyanka Chopra and Richard Madden at the forefront of the show.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Priyanka Chopra in a big-budget series like The Citadel. As a matter of fact, the last time was probably Quantico. And I’m sure we all know how amazing that show was. She’s been involved in a few movies since then but no series. Well, she’s back and better than ever alongside Richard Madden.
The last time we saw Richard on a mainstream series was on Game of Thrones. Since then he’s been pretty busy himself, scoring a role in the MCU as Ikaris on the Eternals. I’m excited to see what more the MCU has in store for the Eternals as a whole but I’m also excited to see him lead a series of his own.
The series is also a result of the directors of Avengers: Endgame, and Infinity war, and was executively produced by the Russo brothers. So you can tell just how much quality has been put into the show. And you can see it right out the gate on the trailer. Insane, Tom Cruise-level action and stunts, lots and lots of drama, and we can be sure to see some twists and turns in the story as the show moves along. The bottom line is that this show looks to be one of the best series releases of the year, and I personally can’t wait for it.
The show costs a whopping $250 million to make, making it the second most expensive series of all time. Honestly, it’s not hard to tell when you watch the trailer. It looks like a big-budget movie that has all the goods.
The series is basically about two random, but not-so-regular, people who have a recollection of knowing each other but seem to know each other. Mason Kane (Kit Harrington) can’t recall anything from the last couple of years of his life, but somehow he manages to remember he’s connected to Nadia Sinh in some way, who also doesn’t know him but has apparently: “seen him in a dream. It turns out that they were both spy agents for an agency called The Citadel. A spy agency that is loyal to no nation. Together they must try to stop a shadow syndicate from carrying out whatever they have planned.
The Citadel releases on the 28th of April, 2023. It’s so close yet so far. If you don’t watch anything at all in March, it should be The Citadel.
