Starz has renewed Spartacus for a third season.
The swords-and-sandals series will begin production on the as yet untitled third run early next year in New Zealand.
“There is no denying the impact Spartacus has had in the marketplace with fans across the globe thirsting for the continuation of the epic tale,” Starz Media managing director Carmi Zlotnik said.
“The executives at Starz have been extremely supportive in giving us creative freedom and allowing us to tell the story in a rich, yet bold way that leaves an indelible mark on its fans,” said Spartacus showrunner Steven S. DeKnight.
Added Zlotnik: “Vengeanace brings unparalleled action and drama to Starz viewers in January. We are thrilled to come to an early agreement that allows the writers and talent to get right back to work in preparing for Season 3.”
