Spartacus led the gladiators of the ludus owned by the House of Batiatus, in a revolt against their masters. This followed a series of traumatic events whereby Spartacus fights his way to the top of the gladiatorial food-chain and finds out that his beloved wife is enslaved and subsequently murdered, a plot concocted by his owner – Batiatus. Its also worth knowing that, in the prequel series, Gannicus was the champion who won his freedom through combat, and will be making a return to the fore.
If you’re a fan of the show you won’t need much convincing to tune in for yet another series of blood, guts and nudity. And of course featuring the following lovelies.
Lucy Lawless – Lucretia, Batiatus’ wife
Katrina Law – Mira
Viva Bianca – Ilithyia
Cynthia Addai-Robinson – Naevia
Brooke Williams – Aurelia (Varro’s wife)
Hanna Mangan-Lawrence – Seppia
If you do need any convincing (Joe hates it!), even just a cursory glance below should be enough…
