Starz recently announced that next season of Spartacus, titled “War of the Damned”, would be the show’s last. Because of that, the cable channel is bringing the show to San Diego Comic-Con one final time.
Liam McIntyre (Spartacus), Manu Bennett (Crixus) and Steven S. DeKnight (executive producer) are expected to attend. The panel will take place on Friday, July 13th from 5:45 to 6:45pm in Room 6BCF of the convention center:
“On the heels of Starz’announcement that the upcoming season, ‘Spartacus: War of the Damned’(premiering January 2013) will be the final chapter of the internationally-applauded franchise, stars Liam McIntyre and Manu Bennett will join executive producer/creator, Steven S. DeKnight at San Diego’s Comic-Con for what has been one of the most well-attended and lively panels for the past three years with standing-room only crowds. This summer’s event is sure to be no different as fans will get the very first opportunityto see new footage and hear about the upcoming and final season which DeKnight has promised will be “epic on a scale you will not believe.” Production is currently underway in New Zealand. Liam and Manu will travel around the globe to be with the fans for just one day, before heading back to finish filming (production wraps in the fall). This is the first, and perhaps only, opportunity to interview Liam, Manu and Steven together and get the inside story on the final season. ‘Spartacus: War of the Damned’is scheduled to premiere in January 2013 on STARZ.”
