STARZ has provided a look behind-the-scenes at the shooting of the final season of the popular Spartacus series with this new video from the set of Spartacus: War of the Damned. Producers and the series’ stars Liam McIntyre and Manu Bennett talk about what viewers can expect from Spartacus: War of the Damned, promising more of pretty much everything that we’ve come to love and expect from Spartacus.
Currently shooting in New Zealand, Spartacus: War of the Damned will air in January 2013.
Spartacus: War of the Damned takes place following the defeat of Roman commander Gaius Claudius Glaber. Spartacus and his men have amassed major victories against the Romans after the Battle of Vesuvius. These victories have not only forged the legend of Spartacus, but have greatly increased the ranks of the rebellion slaves to more than 30,000. Rome is indeed beginning to tremble at the threat Spartacus now represents.
Spartacus: War of the Damned sees the return on Liam McIntyre (Spartacus), Manu Bennett (Crixus), Dustin Clare (Gannicus), Dan Feuerriegel (Agron), Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Naevia) and Ellen Hollman (Saxa). This year, Todd Lasance joins the cast as Gaius Julius Caesar, along with Simon Merrells, who will be playing Marcus Crassus and Anna Hutchison as Laeta.
