The show plotline read: “They have 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 in an effort to stop Manticore, all while contending with a relationship built on secrets, lies, and a dangerous-yet-undying love”.
The show also stars Lesley Manville, Osy Ikhile, Ashleigh Cummings, Roland Moller and Caoilinn Springall. It will start streaming on Amazon Prime Video from April 28, with two episodes, followed by a new episode released weekly every Friday through May 26.
The other Citadel series are already in production in Italy and India. The India segment stars Varun Dhawan and Samantha.
