If you’re a fan of the network cable series, Spartacus, you’ll be happy to know that the series is alive and well. Spartacus: War of the Damned, currently in production in New Zealand, is scheduled to air January 2013.
The final season segues out of the defeat of Roman commander Gaius Claudius Glaber. Spartacus and his men have scored major victories against the Romans after the Battle of Vesuvius. The rebellion launched by the former slave and gladiator has mushroomed to more than 30,000 slaves. We see Rome beginning to tremble at the growing threat of Spartacus and his slave army.
The bittersweet news for Spartacus fans is that the sword-and-sandal saga will conclude with the upcoming final season. The story of a slave who defied Rome has brought a unique visual style to the small screen. The critically acclaimed series has become the most successful on the STARS network. With over six million weekly viewers, last season’s Spartacus: Vengeance drew more than 2.5 million Facebook fans and has aired in 150 countries in more than 15 languages.
“Fans have been tremendously supportive of our show,” says creator and executive producer, Steven S. DeKnight. “We did not come to this decision lightly. It was an extremely difficult and emotional decision for my partners and I. Yet, in the end, the story was best served by rolling all of the remaining action and drama of Spartacus’ journey into one stunningly epic season that will be extremely satisfying for everyone who’s been along for the ride.”
The Emmy® nominated series, promises to deliver even more in the final season with the construction of a full city, a Roman Villa, and the scene of the epic battle along the Appian Way. Spartacus: War of the Damned will bring back Liam McIntyre (Spartacus), Manu Bennett (Crixus), Dustin Clare (Gannicus), Dan Feuerriegel (Agron), Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Naevia) and Ellen Hollman (Saxa). New to the cast will be Todd Lasance as Gaius Julius Caesar, along with Simon Merrells, who will play Marcus Crassus and Anna Hutchison as Laeta.
