Spartacus: Starz Renews Series for Season Two (Already!)

SpartacusStarz certainly has a lot of faith in their new Spartacus series. They’ve ordered a second season before a single episode has even aired.

The first season of the series, titled Spartacus: Blood and Sand, is set to kick off on January 22nd on the pay-for-view channel. The show revolves around the classic gladiator and stars newcomer Andy Whitfield as the title character. The show also stars Antonio Te Maioha, Craig Parker, Erin Cummings, Lucy Lawless, Manu Bennett, Nick E. Tarabay, and Peter Mensah.

“We couldn’t be happier with the first season. Spartacus delivers on all levels — action, characters, intrigue, romance and excitement,” said Starz Entertainment EVP, Programming, Stephan Shelanski. “Spartacus is the most ambitious original project we’ve ever undertaken, and speaks to the commitment to our subscribers to provide truly original programming along with our unmatched lineup of theatrical features.”

Season two of Spartacus will likely be titled Spartacus: Vengeance but all of the story details are being kept under wraps so as not to spoil season one. The second season will be comprised of 13 installments and shooting is scheduled to begin in the next few months in New Zealand.

What do you think? Are you looking forward to the Spartacus series?

    It’s was a decent series that captured my attention. I would say however, Rome was so much better. And seeing that first was hard to except the Spartacus series in a sense that the dramatics of “realness” bored me and at times deemed itself likea cheap daytime soap show. But, looking forward to more, and hoping they can keep the story line going with much more realistic graphics.
