Spartacus: Gods of the Arena
Spartacus: Gods of the Arena rewinds the clock, resurrects a couple of dead guys and introduces two new characters who share in the gladiator-era debauchery and bloodlust.
Set approximately five years before Spartacus: Blood and Sand, the six-part prequel (premiering Friday at 10/9c on Starz) features a more youthful but no less ambitious Lentulus Batiatus (John Hannah), and his randy wife Lucretia (Lucy Lawless) as well as Gladitor Crixus (Manu Bennett) and Oenomaus (Peter Mensah). New to the story are Gannicus (Dustin Clare), a gladiator, and the merry widow Gaia (Jaime Murray), both of whom provide much of the entertainment — and trouble — in Batiatus' world before the arrival of Spartacus.

Rome wasn't built in a day, but Spartacus: Gods of the Arena came damn close.
This is the program Starz quickly green-lit last year when Season 2 of Spartacus: Blood and Sand had to be put on hold due to leading man Andy Whitfield's cancer diagnosis. The powers behind the hit series needed a way to maintain creative momentum and keep their cast and staff together until Blood could resume, with Whitfield's replacement, Liam McIntyre. (Production begins this spring.)
But Gods, a six-episode prequel revealing how the House of Batiatus rose to prominence in the gladiator business, is no mere time-filler. It's just as epic and freakishly compelling as the original series and — if possible — even more gruesome, decadent and scatological...
