STARZ ORDERS SPARTACUS
THE HOUSE OF ASHUR SPIN OFF
Well, since they haven't had a hit show in a long time, once glorious Starz has decided to return to their old golden goose and hire Steven S. DeKnight
to return to the arena with SPARTACUS: HOUSE OF ASHUR a ten part historical series which will effectively be the fifth season of Spartacus series which had four seasons before it ended with the death of the hero exactly ten years ago. Nick Tarabay will reprise the role of Ashur, the villain from the original series.
Starz describes the series as a history-bending, erotic, thrilling, roller-coaster experience that builds on the original series! What if Ashur hadn’t died on Mount Vesuvius at the end of Spartacus: Vengeance? And what if he had been gifted the gladiator school once owned by Batiatus (John Hannah) in return for aiding the Romans in killing Spartacus and ending the slave rebellion? And if Ashur survived, does this mean some other characters did as well?
