Starz will bring its “Spartacus” saga to a conclusion in January with “Spartacus: War of the Damned” — and with a title like that, fans needn’t worry that the series will suddenly become a contemplative drawing-room drama in its last run.
The show’s team unveiled a trailer for the final season at Comic-Con over the weekend, and it keeps up the bloody, sexy tradition of previous seasons. Spartacus (Liam McIntyre) looks almost maniacal as he pursues his goal of bringing down the Roman Empire and looks to be very much into the idea of “take no prisoners.”
His chief adversary this season will be Marcus Crassus (Simon Merrells, “The Wolfman”), a new character charged with crushing the rebellion. In the trailer, looks positively giddy at the idea. “War of the Damned” will also feature Australian actor Todd Lasance as Julius Caesar.
Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think — are you psyched for the final season of “Spartacus”?
