Eight years ago, Citadel fell. The independent, global spy agency tasked with ensuring everyone’s safety has been destroyed by agents of the Manticore, a powerful syndicate that manipulates the shadow world. With the collapse of the Citadel, elite agents Mason Kane (played by Richard Madden) and Nadia Sinh (played by Priyanka Chopra Jonas) have their memories erased as they fight to escape with their lives.
Since then, they have been living in hiding, building new identities and unaware of their past. Until, one night, Mason is located by his former Citadel colleague, Bernard Orlick (played by Stanley Tucci), who desperately needs his help to stop Manticore from establishing a new world order. Mason searches for his ex-partner, Nadia, and the two spies embark on a mission that takes them around the world in an effort to stop the Manticore, while dealing with a relationship built on secrets, lies and a dangerous but everlasting love. .
