Bummed that we are that 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' will mark the final 10 episodes for Liam McIntyre to play leader to our favorite ex-gladiator heroes, we trust in Starz to make them an ending to remember. Never has that trust been so affirmed as with the latest trailer for 'Spartacus: War of the Damned.' highlighting the endless supply of blood, and the daring leader at his heroic best.
From the season’s official synopsis:
The season opens and Gaius Claudius Glaber is dead. Many months have passed since his defeat, and the rebel army, led by Spartacus and his generals Crixus, Gannicus and Agron continue to amass victories over Rome.
With the rebel numbers swelling to thousands of freed slaves, and Spartacus more determined than ever to bring down the entire Roman Republic, the horde become a force that challenges even the mighty armies of Rome. Together, the rebels engage in one bloody skirmish after another and prepare for the inevitable: a full out war.
In addition to the casting of actresses Anna Hutchinson, Jenna Lind and Gwendoline Taylor, ‘Spartacus: War of the Damned’ will also feature the introduction of two major villains, that of Marcus Crassus (Simon Merrells) with a young Julius Caesar (Todd Lasance) by his side. The extensive additions fill the void left by departed actors Lucy Lawless (Lucretia), Viva Bianca (Ilithyia), Craig Parker (Glaber), Peter Mensah (Oenomaus), Katrina Law (Mira) and Nick E. Tarabay (Ashur).
