Coming out of Comic-Con is the first trailer for the upcoming season of Spartacus: Vengeance. The Starz series continues with its second season following Spartacus: Blood and Sand - though counting the prequel Spartacus: Gods of the Arena it essentially becomes the third season.
Liam McIntyre takes over the role of Spartacus following the health-related departure of Andy Whitfield. The premiere is slated for January 2012.
On the heels of the bloody escape from the House of Batiatus that concluded “Spartacus: Blood and Sand”, the gladiator rebellion continues and begins to strike fear into the heart of the Roman Republic in “Spartacus: Vengeance”. Gaius Claudius Glaber and his Roman troops are sent to Capua to crush the growing band of freed slaves that Spartacus leads before it can inflict further damage. Spartacus is presented the choice of satisfying his personal need for vengeance against the man that condemned his wife to slavery and eventual death or making the larger sacrifices necessary to keep his budding army from breaking apart. Containing all of the blood-soaked action, exotic sexuality, and villainy and heroism that has come to distinguish the series, the tale of Spartacus resumes in epic fashion.
