Exclusive Interview: SPARTACUS VENGEANCE producer on the latest season

Liam McIntyre in SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE | ©2012 Starz

Starz Network’s SPARTACUS series, Friday nights at 10 PM, has gone through almost as many tribulations as its legendary hero. The first season, SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND, starred Andy Whitfield as the Thracian warrior sent into slavery and trained as a gladiator, only to turn on his master and free his fellows. Then Whitfield was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and the production company did a prequel season, SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA, while waiting for Whitfield to recover. Sadly, Whitfield’s cancer returned. He gave his blessing to the producers to recast the role and passed away in September 2011. Liam […]Read On »

DeKnight Director: Jesse Warn Network: STARZ, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 16, 2012 I was not a person who initially liked the original SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND. I admit to only having watched the first three-fourths of the pilot (before Lucy Lawless and John Hannah even appeared on screen) and I was so unimpressed that I shut it off and didn’t return to the show until DVD. Once I got into it, I was hooked. I had marathons […]Read On »

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. Crixus joins Spartacus’ cause after a betrayal at the end of the last episode of the first season, and he leaves the Ludus to find his lost love Naevia. As this season has proven, nothing is certain even though the former slaves and gladitaors have their freedom. […]Read On »
