Spartacus: Gods of the Arena approaches! Believe it or not, the premiere of the highly anticipated Starz prequel series is just over two months away and today Starz released a very intense, bloody, sexy, sandy trailer.
It took me a few episodes to really get into Spartacus: Blood and Sand but once I realized there was more to the series besides sex and violence (of which there is an abundance), I was hooked on it and I expect the same to be said for this prequel series. The trailer (below) seems to sell the sex and violence about as much as Starz did for Season 1 of Spartacus: Blood and Sand but there is a story to be told here. Gods of the Arena takes place before Spartacus arrived and the story will follow Gannicus, the original champion of the House of Batiatus. In addition to some new characters set to be introduced, the prequel will also feature Batiatus, Lucretia, Crixus and Oenomaus (before he was Doctore).
The six-episode season will premiere on January 21st at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Starz and will air on Fridays at 10 after that. Starz posted some photos from the premiere episode on their Facebook Page. Below is the latest trailer and further down is the full description for the series.
Before Spartacus struck down his first opponent in the arena, there were many gladiators who passed through the gates onto the sand. “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena,” tells the story of the original Champion of the House of Batiatus: Gannicus (Dustin Clare) in a more ruthless time before Spartacus’ arrival where honor was just finding it’s way into the arena.The new series adds to the cast Jaime Murray as Capua’s sexy social climber Gaia and Marisa Ramirez as Melitta, a beautiful slave who must face the ultimate decision of the heart. Jeffrey Thomas plays Batiatus’s father Titus, the traditional and cautious Lanista, head of the Ludus. They join returning cast members John Hannah (Quintus Batiatus), Lucy Lawless (Lucretia), Peter Mensah (Oenomaus, before he becomes Doctore, the gladiator trainer) and Manu Bennett (Crixus).
