STARZ quickly made plans to set up a prequel series to fill the time that Whitfield would need to recover (his recovery is going well, it was announced he will return for a second season ). Now details are slowly starting to emerge about the prequel: see below.
- The series is called - "Spartacus - Gods Of The Arena," which is even more epic than "Blood and Sand"
- Gannicus - A total badass, and the focal point of the miniseries. Think Crixus and Spartacus combined. He will also appear in the second season.
- Many characters will return including - Batiatus, Lucretia, Doctore, Crixus, Barca, and Naevia and Ashur, which is cool because I always thought Ashur departed too soon
I'll be honest, I can't wait for this! I love the series and can't wait for the prequel and the second season.
