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?

    Truly I thought the show was over hyped during the first few episodes…. it was the fifth episode that pulled me in … hook, line, and sinker! Remarkable casting. Great writing. Bloody well done! Good luck Andy, may you get well soon.

    I hope that Andy’s health restores and I am completely in love with the show! Parish the thought, but if Andy is unable to continue and his character is replaced, I may have a difficult time watching.

    I pray for andy whitfield and his health. The selfish side of me is in need for a season 2. I hope that you continue on with this series but, above all, I hope that Andy is healthy and happy.
