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!

For as much as we'll root for the heroes of 'Spartacus: War of the Damned,' there's no denying the magnetism and cruelty of the show's villains. Starz has released a new promo for the coming season, debuting January 25, one which introduces us to our new villainous triumvirate of Marcus Crassus (Simon Merrells), his son Tiberius (Christian Antidormi), and the unpredictable Caesar (Todd Lasance). Will they finally break Spartacus and his army?

Speaking of which, another new promo certainly sews the seeds of tension between Spartacus and his three trusted generals Crixus (Manu Bennett), Gannicus (Dustin Clare) and Aggron (Daniel Feuerriegel), which could lead to their undoing as they face the shadow of Rome.

You can check out both (slightly NSFW) previews below, and tell us what you're looking forward to about the final season of 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' in the comments!
