Starz Announces Premiere Date For 'Spartacus: Vengeance'

Gladiator-lovers unite! Starz has revealed that their popular “Spartacus” franchise will return on January 27.

“Spartacus: Vengeance,” with new series star Liam McIntyre, will premiere at 10 PM ET/PT.

The drama picks up just a few weeks after the gladiators of the house of Batiatus killed their master and went on the run, sending Capua into uproar.

This season is expected to see Spartacus and his former fellow gladiator slaves begin the formations of their army.

Liam took over the role of Spartacus, with the blessing of original series star Andy Whitfield, who passed away in September after a battle with cancer.

“Spartacus: Vengeance” also stars Lucy Lawless as Lucretia, the wife of the slain Batiatus, Manu Bennett as Crixus and Dustin Clare as Gannicus.
