Regarding what made her agree to Citadel, Priyanka Chopra said, "There's nothing like this one out there. I mean that spies have intrigued us as normal people for the longest time because it's a damn intriguing job with betrayal, lies, the suspension of disbelief and there's so much to be done. But, I think what is amazing about Citadel is that it's very character forward and it's not just about the plot twists and the stunts." She added, "You see what is happening between the characters, their relationships and you're really invested in the people that are doing the fun, cool things that you think. And, I think that's what's really different is that you start getting invested in them as people."
Upon being asked to give an elevated pitch about Citadel to the Indian audiences, Richard Madden said, "It's a hard one to give an elevated pitch because we span so many different timelines and different characters. What I will say is it's about a global intelligence agency and the thing that's really intriguing about it is what we're establishing is that it exists in every country. So, they could be in the house next to your's where you are at home and there's something about that a gateway into this world which says there's a lot going on behind the scenes right in front of you."
