Starz’s Spartacus returns January 27 with “Vengeance”

“Spartacus: Blood and Sand” premiered on STARZ in January 2010, and quickly became one of the most talked about shows on television. The first season ended in an explosive finale, “Kill Them All,” as Spartacus led a brutal rampage at the House of Batiatus that more than fulfilled the promise of the episode’s title.

“Spartacus: Vengeance” begins just a few weeks after that massacre. Capua is in an uproar. The gladiators have escaped and formed an uneasy alliance. Spartacus wants to exact Revenge on the man responsible for killing his wife, but he will soon understand his life is about something greater than avenging Sura’s death. His mission is to build an army, set free the slaves and topple the Roman Empire. STARZ Originals newest series “Spartacus: Vengeance,” premieres Friday, January 27th at 10pm ET, only on STARZ.

The complete press release is included after the jump.
