To rev our engines for the next and final season of SPARTACUS, subtitled WAR OF THE DAMNED (nice work), STARZ has released a “Strategy of War” video. This video features a recap of last year and a preview of this year, with creator Steven S. DeKnight, Liam McIntyre (the titular hero himself), and Simon Merrells (Marcus Crassus). Enjoy the bloody mess below.
SPARTACUS: WAR OF THE DAMNED returns Friday January 25th, 2013, at 9 PM ET/PT on STARZ. Who can wait that long?!
“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.
