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?

    i have to tell the producers of SPARTACUS that i so very much loved the show. I was so dissappointed when the season was finished, i really had no interest in tv. The graphics alone is enough to make you feel as if you were in the show yourself. You guys really out did yourselves with this one. And now i’m estatic with joy to know there will be another season, thank you. This is better than daytime soap opera’s. Maybe this could be an on going show as well. Don’t stop at two season’s. PLEASE

    I enjoyed this show so much. I was truly excited to find out they were going to have a season two. I can’t wait….patiently anticipating season two. There was drama, action, betrayal, love, lust and guts. What more can you ask for in one show.

    What an awesome show. I watch reruns all the time. In fact, after I watched an episode, I would wait an additional hour to watch it again, and then on demand. I re-watched season 1 on demand after the season had ended from episode one, to the final episode. Never tiring. Great show, great characters, love the writing and the acting is fantastic!! I hope this series will be around for quite a while!
