Citadel trailer depicts new spy drama from Russo Brothers

Prime Video released the first trailer for the new spy drama series, Citadel, which stems from executive producers Anthony and Joe Russo (Avengers: Endgame).

Richard Madden (Eternals) stars as Mason Kane, an elite spy who used to work for an independent global spy agency called Citadel. The organization was destroyed eight years prior by a syndicate named Manticore. Kane and fellow agent Nadia Sinh (The Matrix Resurrections’ Priyanka Chopra Jonas) had their memories wiped out when Citadel fell, and they’ve each built new lives under new identities.

In the present day, Mason is recruited by his former colleague, Bernard Orlick (Inside Man’s Stanley Tucci), to join him in the fight against Manticore. Mason must find Nadia and remind her of their past lives together to stop Manticore and protect the world. As Orlick states in the trailer, “You need to remember the past to save the future.”

The rest of the ensemble features Lesley Manville (Phantom Thread) as Dahlia Archer, Osy Ikhile (Black Mirror) as Carter Spence, Ashleigh Cummings (NOS4A2) as Abby Conroy, Roland Møller (Skyscraper) as Anders Silje and Davik Silje, and Caoilinn Springall (The Midnight Sky) as Hendrix Conroy.

Citadel is the start of a global franchise available in 240 countries and territories worldwide. In addition to the main series with Madden and Chopra Jonas, there will be spinoff series with interconnected stories around the globe. There are series underway in both Italy and India starring Matilda De Angelis (Leonardo), Varun Dhawan (Bhediya), and Samantha Ruth Prabhu (The Family Man).

Citadel is created by Josh Appelbaum (Without Remorse) and Bryan Oh (Homecoming). David Weil (Invasion) serves as the showrunner, while the Russo Brothers will executive produce.

Butcher powers up in a new trailer for The Boys season 3
The cast of The Boys.

One of the key changes that The Boys live-action series made from the comic book that inspired it is that the main characters have no superhuman powers of their own. They're just regular guys and one woman with enhanced strength. Somehow, they've managed to survive two seasons on Prime Video's breakout hit. However, it's time for Billy Butcher and his team to level the playing field.

In the gore-filled new trailer for The Boys season 3, a significant amount of time has passed since the events of season 2. Outwardly, Homelander was humbled by the revelation that he was dating a super Nazi code-named Stormfront. And while Homelander says all of the right things to the media, it's clear that he's losing his mind. It's so obvious that even Homelander's handlers are terrified of him. That's why Butcher has been given the chance to become the very thing he hates the most: A superhuman. But against Homelander, even having powers may not be enough.

The Kids in the Hall return in new trailer for the revival
The cast of The Kids in the Hall.

From 1988 to 1995, Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Bruce McCulloch, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson headlined the comedy sketch series The Kids in the Hall. To close out their five-season run on television, the "Kids" were all buried alive in the final episode. That's why it's fitting that the first trailer for Prime Video's revival picks up where The Kids in the Hall left off.

Naturally, the guys are somewhat disappointed that they've aged 27 years since the last episode. Regardless, they don't let that get in the way of revisiting a few characters from the original series. For example, Mr. Tyzik/Headcrusher is back to destroy a monument during a police standoff. And the Eradicator is also back to "eradicate."

A Very British Scandal review: Come for drama, stay for Foy
Claire Foy and Paul Bettany stand next to each other in A Very British Scandal.

In 2018, Prime Video released A Very English Scandal in the U.S. The three-episode limited series was written by Russell T Davies and directed by Stephen Frears, and it covered one of the most notorious British news scandals of the past 100 years. However, despite the scandalous nature of the show's story, Frears and Davies worked together to uncover the intimate drama at the center of the series' famous conflict. In the end, A Very English Scandal managed to do just that.

Now, four years later, A Very British Scandal, a new limited series now streaming on Prime, similarly seeks to tell the true story behind a notorious British news scandal, and notably, stars two well-known British performers as its leads. The resulting show is one that isn’t quite as balanced or consistently enthralling as A Very English Scandal but is still powerful and compelling in its own right.
