According to The Hollywood Reporter, there were "differences in vision led to the exit of half the creative team and has forced the show — a spy thriller that is meant to launch local spinoffs — into a round of expensive reshoots. Now the series is on track to become the second-most expensive television show ever made, after its initial $160 million budget is now having to add a reported $75 due to reshoots."

As shared by Comic Book publication, Citadel, was first announced to be in the works in 2020, with Richard Madden and Priyanka Chopra Jonas set as leading stars.

Amazon Studios had reportedly already ordered several local spinoffs for the series, which would follow spies having their own adventures in Italy, India, and Mexico. According to the report, creative differences began to arise after filming on Citadel wrapped in December, with Amazon reportedly having "some reservations about early footage."

As weeks passed by, other project commitments had whittled down the creative camps to two opposing forces, Joe Russo and Josh Appelbaum, who was the series’ showrunner leading to Appelbaum’s exit. The Russos' production company, AGBO, is reportedly now in charge of Citadel, hiring Hunters' David Weil to rewrite the show, and cinematographer Thomas Sigel to direct the reshoots. The show is reportedly now in post-production.
