SXSW: First Clip for Prime Video’s ‘Citadel’ Drops Online Ahead of Show Premiere

The first official clip for Prime Video’s latest series, Citadel, was released online before the show’s premiere. The clip closed out a keynote conversation during the first day of the South by Southwest Festival with actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon and MGM Studios. According to a press release, the keynote conversation discussed “the next generation of women in Hollywood, global content innovation, and Chopra Jonas’ leading role in the first-of-its-kind franchise.” You can view the full conversation below:

Citadel stars Chopra Jonas, alongside Richard Madden, Lesley Manville, Stanley Tucci, Osy Ikhile, Ashleigh Cummings, Roland Møller, and Caoilinn Springall. Here’s the official plot synopsis:

“Eight years ago, Citadel fell. The independent global spy agency—tasked to uphold the safety and security of all people—was destroyed by operatives of Manticore, a powerful syndicate manipulating the world from the shadows. With Citadel’s fall, elite agents Mason Kane (Richard Madden) and Nadia Sinh (Priyanka Chopra Jonas) had their memories wiped as they narrowly escaped with their lives. They’ve 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”

You can watch the clip below and see the first two episodes of the series on April 28th exclusively on Prime Video:
