Liam McIntyre in Spartacus Vengeance

Starz released the newest teaser trailer for the upcoming 2nd season of their Spartacus franchise series, titled Spartacus: Vengeance, premiering on STARZ on January 27th.

It stars Liam McIntyre as Spartacus, Manu Bennett and much of the gang from season 1 of Spartacus: Blood and Sand.

This newest preview seems to show McIntyre taking up the mantle role of Spartacus and wielding it and a sword nicely! Need I say more?

Me and the boys, Manu Bennett and Liam McIntyre having some fun back in July:

Spartacus Vengeance picks up the story after the break-out that Spartacus led, leading the gladiator slaves to freedom. Now, they have to contend with the citizenry and army not really liking this new development at all.

I have to say, yes, there’s some splattery gore in the show. Sure, there’s some gratuitous nudity & sex too. But the creative team behind the Starz Spartacus franchise really pulls together an incredibly compelling story between the characters that makes it irresistible.

The series is brought to us from Steven S. DeKnight, Sam Raimi and other wonderfully talented folks. If you have Starz on your service, and you can get past the obvious, I’d say give it a try! I did, and got hooked, hard!

And yes, I did say 2nd season. The first season was titled Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Then there was a prequel, titled Spartacus: Gods of the Arena. I wasn’t sure if they could pull off a prequel, but wow, did they ever. And to see Manu Bennett portray an insecure Crixus was absolutely amazing to watch. The prequel was brought about while the late Andy Whitfield battled his cancer. Starz showed wonderful support for Whitfield during his personal battle, but alas, well, I can’t say anything more on that.

McIntyre was hired to carry on the mantle of Spartacus and it looks like he will do fine and they chose well.

-Thanks for coming by gang, -Bruce
