Series creator EP David Weil told Cinemablen that "We're not officially greenlit for a second season,” when asked about the reports which claimed that the team has already started work on Season 2. "However, what I can say is that you know, the Citadel universe is robust, and there are so many threads by the end of the season that would be very thrilling to pick up in a second season and hopefully beyond. So there's a lot of mythology to unpack,” he had then told the news portal.
Meanwhile, the six-episode series Citadel, which has been created by Russo Brothers’ AGBO and David Weil, features Richard Madden, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Stanley Tucci, and Lesley Manville in key roles. It had nearly 25 million viewers for its OTT premiere, making it Prime's biggest debut since 'Rings of Power'.
