Citadel is Labeled as a ‘Groundbreaking Global Event’
Citadel is being called a global event, with a mother series and several satellite series planned in different countries. The spin-offs, which will all be a part of the larger universe, are set to take place in Italy, India, Spain, and Mexico.
“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 and Nadia Sinh 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, who desperately needs his help to prevent Manticore from establishing a new world order,” reads the official synopsis.
