‘Spartacus: War of the Damned’ set to return January 2013 VIDEO

Starz has announced that its gladiatorial series “Spartacus” will come to its conclusion with its third season, “Spartacus: War of the Damned,” which will premiere on Friday, January 25th 2013 at 9pm.

This season will introduce Marcus Crassus (Simon Merrells), who’s faced with the task of defeating Spartacus. And from what series creator Steven DeKnight and star Liam McIntyre have to say, it sounds like Crassus will pose some serious opposition.

Here’s the synopsis for Spartacus: War of the Damned:

“Spartacus: War of the Damned” takes place following the defeat of Roman commander Gaius Claudius Glaber. Spartacus and his men have amassed major victories against the Romans after the Battle of Vesuvius. These victories have not only forged the legend of Spartacus, but have greatly increased the ranks of the rebellion slaves to more than 30,000. Rome is indeed beginning to tremble at the threat Spartacus now represents.

“Spartacus: War of the Damned” sees the return of Liam McIntyre (Spartacus), Manu Bennett (Crixus), Dustin Clare (Gannicus), Dan Feuerriegel (Agron), Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Naevia) and Ellen Hollman (Saxa). This year, Todd Lasance joins the cast as Gaius Julius Caesar, along with Simon Merrells, who will play Marcus Crassus and Anna Hutchison as Laeta.
