Joe Russo will direct all of ‘Citadel’ season 2 as Prime Video makes renewal official

AGBO’s Joe Russo will direct all episodes “citadel” Season 2, making him the latest filmmaker to tackle an entire season in one go. Prime Video announced the news along with confirming what is known for a few months: “Citadel” is returning for a second season. Executive producer David Weil is also returning as showrunner.

“AGBO is thrilled to begin this next phase of the detective story with Jane, Vernon and the entire Amazon team,” executive producers Anthony and Joe Russo said in a statement. “The innovative storytelling of ‘Citadel’ has paved the way for an incredible, worldwide collaboration with creatives in front of and behind the camera.”

Russo joins the ranks of Steven Soderbergh (“The Nick”), Sam Esmail (“Mr. Robot”) and Bill Hader (“Barry”), the latest to direct an entire season of TV solo. And he’ll be doing so without his brother Anthony Russo, with whom he directed feature films like “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers Endgame” and the upcoming Netflix sci-fi feature “The Electric State.”

This is far from Russo’s first stint in TV, though, as the brothers initially served as lead directors on shows like “Arrested Development” and “Community” before joining the Marvel universe with “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” I made my bones.
