SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA, the audacious prequel to Spartacus: Blood And Sand, will premiere on Friday, July 1 at 10:00 pm on MAX. In these series, popular veteran actors John Hannah and Lucy Lawless reprise their roles as the scheming husband and wife team of Quintus Batiatus and Lucretia, who will stop at nothing to deceive the masses, seize power, and bleed Capua dry in order to take control of the House of Batiatus during its ascent through the ranks of gladiator stables. Spartacus: Blood And Sand alumni Peter Mensah, Manu Bennett and Nick Tarabay also return to the production helmed once again by award-winning producers Sam Raimi, Joshua Donen and Steven S. DeKnight, while Dustin Clare, Jaime Murray, Marisa Ramirez and Jeffrey Thomas join the cast.
