Starz Presents "The Spartacus Saga: Uncut"

Legions of fans have spoken, and STARZ has answered the call! The entire SPARTACUS series will be rebroadcast beginning Saturday, October 26th with "Blood and Sand." Fans will be able to binge view multiple episodes every week, and will also be treated to bonus footage previously available only on the Blu-Ray discs.

Liam McIntyre will host each evening, offering his insights into each of the episodes from "Blood and Sand", "Gods of the Arena", "Vengeance" and "War of the Damned."

SPARTACUS averaged up to six million viewers per episode over the course of its highly acclaimed and successful four year run on the network. Additionally, it is an international smash, airing in over 150 countries and translated into more than 15 languages.

SPARTACUS continues to be extremely popular in social media. In addition to over 3.5 million Facebook followers, the post-season engagement levels have at times outperformed conversations during the series run earlier this year.

For those feeling particularly gluttonous, all 39 episodes of the series will be available on Starz on Demand and Starz Play beginning October 26th.

SERIES OVERVIEW

The House of Batiatus, a gladiator training camp, is on the rise, basking in the glow of its champion Gannicus. A young Batiatus, with his loyal wife Lucretia by his side, is ready to overthrow his father and betray anyone to keep his gladiators in demand. But when Batiatus falls on hard times, it will take a gladiator greater than current champion Crixus to turn his fortunes around. When a Thracian slave named Spartacus arrives, Batiatus senses greatness. Under the watchful eye of gladiator trainer Doctore, Spartacus rises through the ranks to become the new champion. However, when Spartacus discovers that his wife Sura has been killed, he plots to avenge her death and free every slave; a bloody escape ensues. Gaius Claudius Glaber, the Roman responsible for bringing Spartacus and his wife into slavery, sends troops to crush the slave army. But Spartacus, with a rebellion swelling to thousands of freed slaves, becomes a force mightier than Rome had ever imagined. The Roman Senate turns to Marcus Crassus, a wealthy, strategic politician, for aid. With a young Julius Caesar as an ally, Crassus must crush the rebellion. And one final, bloody battle will be unleashed; a battle unlike anything ever seen before in the history of the Republic.
