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.

Spartacus: Sword & Ashes Novel Preview

Spartacus was a big hit for Starz and has already been renewed for a third season before its second season has even premiered ( read more here ).  After the first season debuted in January 2010, Starz went on to air a six episode prequel series entitled Spartacus: Gods of the Arena . Titan Books publishes many novel tie-ins for various television shows, including Supernatural and Stargate .  Now the publishing house has released its first Spartacus tie-in novel, titled "Spartacus: Sword & Ashes". The novel is meant to take place in the world created by the first season ( Spartacus: Blood and Sand ), although the timeline is before the ending of the first season.  The gladiator Spartacus has been crowned the Champion of Capua and still serves the house of Batiatus and Lucretia.  In Neapolis, a wealthy man named Pelorus is hosting a party at his estate when his slaves escape and kill him.  The slaves have been sentenced to death and Batiatus is scheming to steal Pelorus' estate in order to enrich his own house.

Comic-Con 2011: New 'Spartacus' Star Liam McIntyre Makes Debut Appearance (Video)

Liam McIntyre  made his public debut Friday at Comic-Con, where he and his  Spartacus: Vengeance  team we so well-received with screams that you'd think  Twilight 's  Taylor Lautner  was in the house.   Showrunner  Steven S. DeKnight  wasted little time in making the introduction and also noted that he literally just met McIntyre on Thursday.
