To get yourself prepared for the upcoming season, check out HOLLYWOOD SPY's mega extensive spotlight on the show with everything you need to know - from the story and tidbits and characters old and characters new, to amazing new promo pictures!
WAR OF THE DAMNED STORY
Gaius Claudius Glaber is dead. Many months have passed since his defeat, and the rebel army, led by Spartacus and his generals Crixus, Gannicus and Agron, continue to amass victories over Rome. With
 the rebel numbers swelling to thousands of freed slaves, it has become a force that has started to challenge even the mighty armies of Rome. Spartacus is more determined than ever to bring down the entire Roman
Republic. Following the death of Ashur, Naevia and Crixus fight as one with newfound strength and determination. And Gannicus, always seeking to embrace life to the fullest, shares his bed with the beautiful 
and dangerous Saxa. Together, the rebels engage in one bloody skirmish after another and prepare for the inevitable: a full out war with Rome. The Roman Senate turns to its wealthiest citizen, Marcus Crassus, for
aid. A powerful, strategic politician, he respects his opponent and refuses to make the same mistakes Glaber and his predecessors have. With a young and fiercely competitive Julius Caesar as an ally, Crassus
is determined to crush Spartacus and his rebellion. The epic conclusion of a legendary journey, SPARTACUS WAR OF THE DAMNED will unleash a battle unlike anything ever seen before.
WAR OF THE DAMNED WARRIORS
Spartacus (trustworthy Liam McIntyre) has amassed an army in the thousands. He knows he is not only responsible for the lives of every man, woman, and child in his rebellion but also for continuing to inspire them to fight for freedom from oppression and to stand up against the mighty Roman Republic! He is joined by Crixus, Agron and Gannicus. Crixus (handsome Manu Bennet) has had tough times rescuing his beloved Naevia from the Roman mines, but now he has a mind focused on war, and the defeat of the Roman Republic. He’ll do it all with Naevia by his side, and he’ll see hell before being separated from her again. Gannicus (dashing Dustin Clare) is still highly respected as
former Gladiator champion and great warrior but he shuns authority in favor of wine and women, sharing his bed with the beautiful Saxa. Despite his boyish lust for life, he is a key asset that Spartacus depends upon. Brave and hot tempered Agron (irresistible Dan Feuerriegel)
has become Spartacus’ right hand man responsible for his leader’s safety while fighting for the cause. Gorgeous young slave Nasir (delightful Pana Hema Taylor) has become a fearsome warrior thanks to the
 training by Spartacus and Agron. He is still involved in a tender and passionate sexual relationship with brave Agron who develops deep feelings for the young fighter.

WAR OF THE DAMNED ROMANS
Wealthy Crassus (Simon Merrells)  is the last hope the Roman Senate has to defeat the rebellion. Although rich, the honor of military success has always eluded him, so now he has opportunity to gain that recognition using all means at his disposal to defeat Spartacus. Since bringing death to Spartacus will require more than just money, he will call upon a young and battle experienced Julius Caesar to help, much to the envy of his oldest son Tiberius, who wants only to prove himself to his father. Tiberius (Christian Antidormi) is living in the shadow of Julius Caesar; an ambitious and self-important young man who is, in many ways, the son Crassus wishes he had. It’s a fact that
Tiberius is very aware of, and one that causes much friction between himself and Caesar. Julius Caesar (naughty Tod Lassance) is arrogant and intelligent but despite his heritage, and his formidable skills
 as both warrior, tactician, and commander of legions, he lacks the wealth to see his ambitions play out, which is why he sees the hunt on Spartacus as his great opportunity!

WAR OF THE DAMNED LADIES
Laeta (stunning Anna Hutchinson), Intelligent, beautiful, and as independent as any Roman woman can be, was married off to her husband when she was just 12 years old. She has only known life as a
privileged Roman elite but will soon have to rise above that and shed her selfishness when her people look to her for leadership. Kore (lovely Jenna Lind) is a house slave to the Crassus family, proficient in several languages as well as managing the household and well-versed in the
classics. Kore has been serving Marcus Crassus since Tiberius’ birth who, in many ways, looks to her as a mother figure. Sibyl (enchanting Gwendoline Taylor), a shy, sweet and innocent young slave, is given 
her freedom when Gannicus ends her master’s life. From that point on she becomes enamored with him, in his shadow at every turn, hoping to find her affections reciprocated by the brash swordsman. Saxa (sexy Ellen Hollman) is as physically striking as she is rude and brash and
just as violent as any man in the rebellion. When not skilfully playing with twin daggers  she embraces life with the same vigor and passion as Gannicus and has taken to sharing his bed. She finds excitement and kinship with a man who’s every bit her equal.

    1. I had a strong feeling you'd be into Saxa, Melsy :P I wonder how the show will score without Craig Parker as Glaber and Lucy Lawless, I will miss them terribly and will have to focus on my other two faves Agron and Nasir, but this new Laeta girl looks intriguing too :)

    2. Too bad about Lucy and Craig. They are so incredible. Agron and Nasir are wonderful characters. I like their storyline.

    3. I hope the two of them will have glorious ending when the end comes and that they will die defending eachother or something.

  3. Woooooo. Looking forward to this one. Wonder how they will get over the fact that we all know how it ends. Or is the journey more important than the final destination on this occasion?

    1. they said they will end the show by somehow incorporating the message that hope still remains and that what they fought for gave results later on eventhough they were all killed. So it will be a bittersweet ending.

  4. Crixus has always been my favorite. :)

    And I can't believe I'm saying this, but I just started watching the second season, and, wow, it's actually got too much sex and violence for me. Didn't know that could happen. :PP It's always a stunning show to watch, though.

    1. Crixus looks so god with the new longer hairdo :)
      What do you mean under second season? GODS OF ARENA (which was the last great season for me even though it was just a prequel) or VENGEANCE (which was much weaker that BLOOD AND SAND)

      Delete
  5. No, I saw Gods of the Arena and Blood and Sand, so this one must be Vengeance. Yeah, I'm that far behind. I just saw psycho Lucretia come back from the dead. God, I love Lucy Lawless in that role, though I know she will meet her doom ... again.

    1. but you will love the way she jumps into her doom in the final episode :) It is terribly shocking, but totally Lucretialike! That show is not that good without her :)

  6. Woo Hoo!! I can't believe it's already time for Spartacus. Actually, I can't believe this is it for Spartacus. But, I'm glad they are ending it correctly and not trying to draw it out forever and ever.

    1. I've received sad news that another of our fave shows is ending this season, but will post about that tomorrow :( Agreed that it's better to finish on time than to fail miserably later on.

    2. Oh no, Dezzy, it almost makes me not want to tune in later today to find out what it is. Please don't say Walking Dead, Dezzy. Please!!!!!

    3. it's not THE WALKING DEAD, you have a clue in the second promo headbanner above :(

  7. Nice to see there's a gay aspect to the series too -- yay!

  8. I really am missing something good here. I don't think Netflix has it. I'll have to check out Hulu to see if they carry it. Fantastic pics today darling.

    1. glad you like the pics, Annzie, and you would love the show because you would love Lucy Lawless' Lucretia, one of the best written female characters on TV

      Delete
    2. It would also be inspiring to watch while I paint. The costumes and the scenery look fantastic.

      Delete
    3. yes, the show was actually revolutionary in the visual department back when it started because before it we never had such amazing CGI visuals in any TV show, it really set some new boundaries to television production. It is also one of the first shows to be aired in almost 150 countries around the world. The costumes for female characters are stunning, especially what Roman ladies are wearing. And the show is also good for sex life :) because after seeing all the tight slave and gladiatorial buttocks, firm titties and warrior willies, there's no way a viewer won't feel horny :)

  9. giggity... bazinga... whaaat-whaaata...zing-zing-zoom... i made up a bunch of words for your post... i know i am the only one, but i miss and am still saddened by the death of the original actor...Andy Whitfield. yeah!

    Replies
    1. Yes, I remember the tears when I announced his death last year here just two hours after it happened :(((( And we miss him even more because no matter how nice Liam McIntyre is, he just doesn't have the charisma for the lead role and the X factor to fill in Andy's sandals :(

    2. exactly... thank you. did you ever see the film "gabriel"?

      Delete
    3. I haven't, but I've seen the amazing poster and I love fantasy films with angels.Outside SPARTACUS I've seen Andy only on the catwalk as a top model

  10. Wow - sounds exciting! I especially love the strong women characters.

  11. You know, I think it may be the hours that I work, but I never really watched this before. My husband and my neighbor told me how great it was, I just never took the time. I just might now. You I will listen to...them, not so much!

    1. it might make you watch it if I tell you that the gladiators bathe in the show full nude full frontal :) I've seen more willies in that show than in any porn film :)
