It may not be Sparta, but it certainly is edgy and astounding. Starz visually epic series SPARTACUS: WAR OF THE DAMNED makes it triumphant return to television this January. With Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Dustin Clare, and Todd Lasance joining as Gaius Julius Caesar, this season should be DAMNED good. Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
The show makes it return on Friday, January 25, 2013 at 9pm EST/10pm PST only on Starz.[youtube id="DhT6WnhePpg" width="600" height="350"]
