SPARTACUS VENGEANCE is cutting a bloody swath across Friday nights on STARZ, and this second season picks up shortly after the first season BLOOD AND SAND left off. Manu Bennett plays Crixus a Gaul gladiator who was once enslaved by the House of Batiatus to fight to the death for his maters’ amusement.

Naturally, the CIA isn’t too thrilled with the idea of one of their own, albeit retired, deploying her Agency skills around the globe. European station chief …Read On »
