A trailer for season two of Starz’s hit swords-and-sandals series “Spartacus” has hit the web. Set to premiere Jan. 27, “Spartacus: Vengeance” finds our hero leading a slave revolution while attempting to take revenge on the man responsible for the enslavement and death of his beloved wife.
It’s been a long wait for “Spartacus” fans and a lot has changed since the show debuted to rave reviews a year ago. For starters, Liam McIntyre has stepped into the titular role, replacing the late Andy Whitfield, and Cynthia Addai-Robinson (”FlashForward”) is now portraying Slave Naevia (Lesley-Ann Brandt left the show to pursue other projects … like Zombie Apocalypse).
The trailer is balls-out bloody and exciting, and provides a peek at a very much alive Lucretia (Lucy Lawless), a deeply disturbed Ilithyia (Viva Bianca), and an arena battling Gannicus (Dustin Clare), last seen in the “Spartacus” prequel “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena.”
