Starz is working hard to promote the second season of Spartacus, entitled Spartacus: Vengeance. The network is a firm believer in the enduring nature of the series, which was cemented by the fact that Starz already greenlit season 3 before the second season has even premiered (read more here). The first 90 second trailer for Spartacus: Vengeance has already been released (view it at the bottom of the season 3 article), but now Starz has released an advance look at the new season.
New Spartacus: Vengeance star Liam McIntyre introduces the clip below (NSFW), which also contains the opening sequence from the premiere.
Starz summarizes the new season as follows: “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.”
Spartacus: Vengeance premieres at 10:00 p.m. ET on Friday, January 27.
