More chiseled gladiators fighting to the death?
Starz has ordered another season of its most successful original series, well before the premiere of the second season. Viewers have been raving about Spartacus: Blood and Sand and its prequel, Gods of the Arena, and Starz will not disappoint its fan base.
The second season, titled Spartacus: Vengeance, will star Aussie Liam McIntyre, replacing (with consent) the original Spartacus, Andy Whitfield, who tragically passed away in September.
The second season will premeire in January 2012 on Starz and series favorites, Lucy Lawless, Peter Mensah, and others are set to return as well.
Who's ready for some more Spartacus?
