'Spartacus: War of the Damned' to air in January on Starz

By
Spartacus: War of the Damned is to return to Starz in January for the series' final episodes.

Starz announced on Tuesday (November 6) that Spartacus: War of the Damnedis to debut Friday, January 25 at 9/8c. The network also unveiled a teaser for the final season (US only):



War of the Damned will see Spartacus (Liam McIntyre) leading more than 30,000 men in the aftermath of the Battle of Vesuvius, while drawing the ire of Rome in the process.

Spartacus creator Steven S DeKnight and Starz announced in June that the series will come to an end following the War of the Damned episodes.

DeKnight offered an explanation at the time on ending the series: "We certainly could have continued for a few more seasons and stretched it out, but we really wanted to end high and not feel like we were treading water - and really just condense the rest of the history into one amazing ten-episode, badass final season."

Starz president Chris Albrecht also defended ending Spartacus in August by saying he did not want the show to begin repeating itself.

DeKnight is currently developing a sci-fi series called Incursion for Starz.
