Life After Spartacus: Starz Plans Action-Packed Genre Lineup
It's "better to leave people wanting more than to risk repeating ourselves and diminish" the power of the Spartacus franchise, Starz president Chris Albrecht told the Television Critics Association at Thursday's fall previews.
In June, the cable network announced that the upcoming third season of Spartacus would be the series' last. Albrecht noted that going into Season 2, when "the rebels were in the hills and the Romans were in the towns" the show had to tell "two distinct stories, which is not the best." So instead of detailing another battle, another argument ad nauseum, it was decided the series would end in a big way with one more season: Spartacus: War of the Damned, which premieres in January 2013.
