It's been a difficult road for Starz to come up with anything as breakout as the 3.5-season 'Spartacus' saga, but while 'Outlander' will prove to be the next big concept series for the network, Syfy is giving 'Spartacus' another shot in the arena. All 39 episodes of the original run will soon air on the sci-fi network, albeit understandably toned down for content.
We were delighted enough to learn that 'Arrow' season 2 would tackle the DC lore of R'as al Ghul head on, but even moreso to learn that his "child" would play an integral role in the episodes to come! To that end, the CW-DC drama has added fellow 'Spartacus' star Katrina Law in the role of R'as al Ghul's daughter, but probably not the one you're thinking.
Crixus and Naevia live! Earlier we'd heard that 'Arrow' season 2 would continue to expand its DC universe with the addition of famed character Amanda Waller, and it seems The CW's casting choice has already been intimately familiar with one of the regulars. 'Spartacus' star Cynthia Addai-Robinson will take the role, but what will Robinson's Amanda Waller mean for the 'Arrow' universe at large?
Starz's epic 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' may have come to its bloody and sandy end this past year, but we're not saying our farewells just yet. The complete three-disc Blu-ray and DVD release of 'Spartacus: War of the Damned -- The Complete Third Season' will hit stores September 3, with an option to pre-book now, and we've got an exclusive look at the cast and crew giving a "Bloody Farewell" to fans of the legendary drama.
Among some of the more direct news to come out of Starz' TCA press tour panel, including an exceptionally early renewal for Michael Bay pirate drama 'Black Sails,' the premium cable network offered up a few updates on some of its more skeptical properties. 'Spartacus' creator Steven S. DeKnight's 'Halo' meets 'Band of Brothers' project 'Incursion' remains very much in play, though 'Boss' and 'Magic City' fans have a bitter pill to swallow.
There are immediate 'Game of Thrones' spoilers in the next paragraph. You have been warned.
In the latest episode of 'Game of Thrones,' Robb Stark's rebellion was put to a sudden and bloody end at the hands of the spiteful Walder Frey, the traitorous Roose Bolton and the crafty Lannister family. "The Red Wedding" saw Robb's pregnant wife stabbed to death and the King in the North shot full of arrows before being stabbed in the heart. However, the real kicker was the death of Robb's mother Catelyn, who had her throat cut after killing Frey's young wife.
It's the kind of scene you never forget, an event that will radically change the make-up of 'Game of Thrones' forever. There won't be a more memorable set of character deaths in 2013. How could someone top that?
Sad as we were to see 'Spartacus' bite the sand earlier this year, we took great comfort in both the possibility of a spin-off and series creator Steven S. DeKnight's interstellar war drama 'Incursion' potentially moving forward at Starz. Now, reports have emerged suggesting DeKnight's 'Incursion' has cooled in the pre-production phase, but does that mean Starz will pass on the series?
This past weekend, the 'Spartacus' franchise and its multiple iterations finally came to a climactic end with series finale event 'Victory,' closing out 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' on a hopeful, if tragic note that gave true history its due.

Get the latest on the 'Spartacus' closer inside!

Last week’s ‘Spartacus: War of the Damned’ episode “The Dead and the Dying” saw Spartacus capturing Tiberius (Christian Antidormi) to hold gladiator games in honor of Crixus’ memory, while a desperate Crassus tasked Caesar (Todd Lasance) with rescuing his son, so what will the last episode of ‘Spartacus’ final season bring? Will the rebel armies triumph over Rome, or go down in history as a failed slave uprising?
