Return To The Arena!
SPARTACUS Returns for VENGEANCE . . .
Histories most famous Gladiator . . .SPARTACUS, returns to torment his Roman adversaries on Friday January 27th for the premiere of the new season "SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE!" It's been a long off season for the hit STARZ Cable Network show. With the passing of Andy Whitfield who tragically lost his battle with Lymphoma, the show was at a crossroads.
Whitfield was beloved in the lead role and played it with passion and vigor. The network in a bold move decided to continue on with the show and re-cast the lead of SPARTACUS with a new comer named Liam McIntyre. At first glance, McIntyre bears an uncanny resemblance to Whitfield and was exited to take on the role.
There have been two seasons of the show so far, one a full season called "SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND" and a mini- series that was a prequel named "SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA." This season picks up where the last full season left off, with the Gladiators living in the Lourdes of the House Of Batiatus leading a revolt against their Roman captors. Spartacus and his main rival turned ally, Crixus(who was champion before Spartacus took the title from him) have teamed up to lead the slaves/gladiators on a campaign to freedom that will no doubt be as bloody as any gladitorial contest thus far. One thing stands in their way of freedom, the empire of Rome and it's soldiers led by Cladius Glaber, a ruthless Captain who's wife also barters a fierce hatred for Spartacus.
Joining Spartacus in his return will be a host of familiar characters from the previous seasons that you've come to either love or despise. The aforementioned Crixus, the trainer of the Lourdes Anumeaus also known as Doctore, the conniving Ashur, and the sultry but evil Llithyia.
These are but a few of the well known faces you'll see making a return in this next installment of the show. There are bound to be surprises and curves thrown at you along the way. There is also room for characters thought to be dead from seasons past to make re-occuring appearances in the form of flashback scenes or dream sequences. There is even a hint of certain individuals making a "return from the dead" in a way. All in all, this season should be as exiting as the previous two and should not disappoint. Catch the return of Spartacus in "SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE" nest Friday Jan. 27th on the STARZ cable network. Here is a sneak preview of the new season followed by a brief cast listing.
