'Spartacus' has taken us on quite a ride over the past few years, one we'll be very sad to see end once the blood-drenched Starz series begins its final season 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' on January 25. And while you can believe we'll be re-watching the previous three season in anticipation of the final year, how would you like to be brought up to speed on the entire series? Check out Starz' epic 'Spartacus' recap inside!

For as much blood and clothes are shed by 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' in its previous incarnations, fans of the acclaimed Starz series well know that the stories would be nothing if not for its strong villains. Where previous seasons gave us the likes of Batiatus, Glaber and Lucretia, 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' will introduce us to the legendary Crassus, his son Tiberius, and even the infamous Julius Caesar! Learn more about the new villains from Starz's bloody new preview inside!
Sad as we are that 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' represents the last season of Starz's gloriously gory historical thriller, we're sure that our heroes will go out in one seriously epic season. To that end, check out the latest behind-the-scenes featurette of the final season, debuting on January 25, focusing on none other than 'Spartacus: Gods of the Arena' star Gannicus (Dustin Clare)! Now brother to Spartacus and trusted leader, Gannicus will once again resume his bloodthirsty battling and legendary lust, so beware the NSFW action of 'Spartacus: War of the Damned'!
Late last week we talked about Starz looking to shore itself up on the drama side, what with the cancellation of 'Boss,' and the imminent end of one of the network's star attractions in 'Spartacus: War of the Damned.' 'Magic City' will soon resume, along with premieres of 'Da Vinci's Demons,' 'The White Queen' and one day 'Black Sails,' but what new venture with 'Chronicle' producer Adam Schroeder could literally take Starz into the future? Will it be another case of 'Human Error?'
Starz is certainly looking to pick up new dramas, what with the earlier cancellation of 'Boss,' and the upcoming final run of 'Spartacus: War of the Damned,' even 'Magic City' having a somewhat tepid reception. For its latest effort Starz has partnered with rapper and occasional actor 50 Cent for 'Power,' which might have one of the vaguest titles and premises we've ever heard. Get the big (little) scoop inside!
Many a 'Spartacus' fan were both saddened and invigorated by the announcement that the hit Starz series would end its run with the final 10-episode season 'Spartacus: War of the Damned,' but their may yet be hope for the world created by show-runner Steven S. DeKnight. New reports suggest that Starz may be developing a spin-off of the blood-soaked series, to center on Todd Lasance's upcoming portrayal of Julius Caesar! Will the 'Spartacus' universe live on after all?
Come a day within the next few weeks, and we'll no longer have 'The Walking Dead,' 'Boardwalk Empire,' nor even 'Dexter' to satiate our weekend bloodlust. However will we cope? With the final season of Starz' epic uprising saga, 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' of course! While we eagerly await the tragic final season of the bloody drama, Starz has issued an official poster for the farewell year, making 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' its biggest outing yet. Get a first look inside!
For as much critical acclaim (including a Golden Globe for Kelsey Grammer) as Starz's 'Boss' managed to garner in its two season run, it seems even mayors can be a slave to ratings. The pay-cable network has opted not to move forward with a third season of the under-performing Chicago mayoral drama, in spite of a cavalcade of stars hire to beef up its buzz. So what are the Starz brass saying of the cancellation, and what might it make room for?
As excited as we are to check out the new season of 'Spartacus,' to be sub-titled 'Spartacus: War of the Damned,' it comes with a twinge of sadness. For we know that just as quickly as 'Spartacus: War of the Damned begins, the quicker the final season of Steven S. DeKnight's historical epic will come to an end. Thankfully, that doesn't stop us from enjoying the brand-spanking new trailer for the season, full of new footage and insight into 'Spartacus: War of the Damned!'
Earlier this year, we were bereaved to learn that following an epic second (technically third) season of Stephen S. DeKnight and Starz's 'Spartacus,' the series would come to a conclusion with its third official season, 'Spartacus: War of the Damned.' With a run of only 10 episodes, Starz has set its officical 2013 premiere date for the show's bloody end, but when can viewers expect the sword to drop? And what new series might take its place?
