The prequel to this year's smash hit series SPARTACUS BLOOD AND SAND is just about to start: January 21st brings SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA to Starz and you can check out the stunning pictures showing the main characters in the show lead by John Hannah (THE MUMMY) as Batiatus the owner of the ludus, Lucy Lawless (XENA) as his wife Lucretia, new cast addition Dustin Clare as the main hero Gannicus, Jaime Murray as Gaia, Marisa Ramirez as Melitta...
As you know, the prequel will describe how Batiatus and Lucretia had become successful in their business before the arrival of Spartacus. GODS OF THE ARENA will be set in the time when the
house of Batiatus was on the rise, basking in the glow of its infamous champion Gannicus, whose skill with a sword is matched only by his thirst for wine and women. These were the times a young Batiatus had been waiting for.
Poised to overthrow his father and take control, he will freely betray anyone to ensure his gladiators are in the highest demand. And he will have his loyal and calculating wife Lucretia by his side for every underhanded scheme, drawing on the brazen talents of her seductive friend Gaia when it counts. Together, they will stop at nothing to deceive the masses, seize power, and bleed Capua dry in this audacious prequel to SPARTACUS BLOOD AND SAND.
When it comes to the second season of BLOOD AND SAND, Starz still hasn't find the lead actor who will replace Andy Whitfiled who has, as you know, left the project due to his illness.
