Starz today announced the premiere date for the final installment of their highly successful “Spartacus” franchise, “Spartacus: War of the Damned,” which will return on Friday, January 25, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT.
Starz also shared a series recap and look at the upcoming season with a new “Strategy of War” video, which you can view below. Join creator Steven S. DeKnight and stars Liam McIntyre and Simon Merrells as they prepare you for the final season.
“Spartacus: War of the Damned” takes place following the defeat of Roman commander Gaius Claudius Glaber. Spartacus and his men have amassed major victories against the Romans after the Battle of Vesuvius. These victories have not only forged the legend of Spartacus, but have greatly increased the ranks of the rebellion slaves to more than 30,000. Rome is indeed beginning to tremble at the threat Spartacus now represents.
“Spartacus: War of the Damned” sees the return of Liam McIntyre (Spartacus), Manu Bennett (Crixus), Dustin Clare (Gannicus), Dan Feuerriegel (Agron), Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Naevia) and Ellen Hollman (Saxa). This year, Todd Lasance joins the cast as Gaius Julius Caesar, along with Simon Merrells, who will play Marcus Crassus and Anna Hutchison as Laeta.
