Spartacus: War Of The Damned Series Description

There was one previously (June 4 2012 press release) when the War of the Damned was announced as the last season:

“Spartacus: War of the Damned,” currently in production in New Zealand, 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. source: Starz Media Room

A new one today at Starz Global Media:


Gaius Claudius Glaber is dead. The rebellion has swelled to thousands of freed slaves, and Spartacus is determined to bring down the Roman Republic. Following Ashur’s death, Naevia and Crixus fight as one. Together with Gannicus and Agron, they prepare for war with Rome. The Roman Senate turns to Marcus Crassus, a wealthy, strategic politician, for aid. With a young Julius Caesar as an ally, Crassus must crush the rebellion. The epic conclusion of a legendary journey, “Spartacus: War of the Damned” unleashes a battle unlike anything ever seen before. source: Starz Global Media
