SYFY SECURES U.S. CABLE RIGHTS TO SPARTACUS

The original seasons of Starz'  Spartacus  — plus the Gods of the Arena prequel miniseries — will begin airing this summer exclusively on Syfy. Variety reports  that Syfy has secured U.S. basic cable rights to Spartacus, which ended after its third season last year. The gladiator drama had a tragic journey during the show's run, as original star Andy Whitfield died after the first season in 2011. After a prequel miniseries, Liam McIntyre replaced Whitfield as Spartacus for the final two seasons of the series.  Read More... http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/05/22/syfy-secures-us-cable-rights-to-spartacus

Spartacus: First Look at Season 3 Released

Just in time for the first-ever chronological marathon of  Spartacus , Starz has released a first look at the next season. Currently lacking a title (e.g. Blood and Sand, Gods of the Arena, Vengeance), the third season of  Spartacus may not be premiering until January of 2013, but from the teaser below, it looks to be gearing up for war as we speak. Though the video doesn't have any dialogue or reveal any plot points, you get to see a little carnage, hinting that season three will live up to the bloody good time had in the first two seasons (and prequel). At the end of Vengeance, the second season and first without Andy Whitfield, Spartacus and his army managed to defeat Glaber, a victory that may do much for morale but will only bring on hoards of soldiers looking to defeat the rebel army. They now have a target on their back, but with each victory, their mystique grows, as does their numbers. But in order to survive the upcoming onslaught from some of the country's most wealthy, experienced military minds, they're going to need all the help they can get, Spartacus or no Spartacus.
