The second season of Starz’s Spartacus has finally received a release date. The second season, after being delayed because of the illness (and eventual death) of Andy Whitfield, will premiere on Friday, Jan. 27 at 10/9c.
The story picks up just a few weeks after the climactic bloodshed of the first season finale. Capua is in an uproar and the gladiators are on the run.
“Spartacus is about to embark on this journey where he has to embrace leadership,” McIntyre says. “There is a certain underlying need for these people to stay together. A bond that is, in a way, unbreakable.”
“Not everybody is on the same page about what they should do, where they should go,” adds creator Steven S. DeKnight. “[But] even when they come to blows, they are together in the sense that they belong to the brotherhood.”
