The newest segment of the beloved STARZ Network Spartacus series is coming out soon — Spartacus: Vengeance. The release date is near and with all the wonderment about the new star Liam McIntyre taking the spot of the beloved Andy Whitfield, who unfortunately died from cancer, people will get to see how he takes on the new lead role of Spartacus. As per the websites synopsis of this new series:
“On the heels of the bloody escape from the House of Batiatus that concluded “Spartacus: Blood and Sand”, the gladiator rebellion continues and begins to strike fear into the heart of the Roman Republic in “Spartacus: Vengeance”. Gaius Claudius Glaber and his Roman troops are sent to Capua to crush the growing band of freed slaves that Spartacus leads before it can inflict further damage. Spartacus is presented the choice of satisfying his personal need for vengeance against the man that condemned his wife to slavery and eventual death or making the larger sacrifices necessary to keep his budding army from breaking apart. Containing all of the blood-soaked action, exotic sexuality, and villainy and heroism that has come to distinguish the series, the tale of Spartacus resumes in epic fashion.
Starring: Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Peter Mensah

As mentioned in previous posts, Andy Whitfield unfortunately was diagnosed with cancer and had to step down from his role as Spartacus.
This role is being replaced, however, by Liam McIntyre. Nobody will be able to replace Andy, but hopefully Liam will be able to help fill in the void.
Starz shall continue with the series obviously and I’m sure it will be just as fantastic as before despite this.
Pictured to the right is Liam Mcintyre. You can now call him Spartacus 2.0 though!
Great news! The role of Spartacus, as played previously by Andy Whitfield before he was diagnosed with cancer, will be recasted. This is good news because the alternative to a recast was the cancellation of the show. While I cannot imagine any other actor playing this character, it’s good to know that the show will go on. On behalf of all the Spartacus: Blood and Sand fans, we wish you the best Andy Whitfield.
