Get ready for the blood-drenched, dazzling spectacle of the third and final season of Spartacus. This season, Thracian gladiator (Liam McIntyre) is more determined than ever to overthrow the Roman Republic. Under his leadership and that of his generals Crixus, Gannicus, and Agron, the rebel army continues to grow and sweep across Rome. After the death of Ashur, Naevia (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) and Crixus (Manu Bennett) are now stronger than ever, while Gannicus becomes embroiled with the striking, dagger-wielding Saxa (Ellen Hollman). General Marcus Crassus (Simon Merrells) and a young Julius Caesar (Todd Lasance) join forces to defend Rome against the attacks of Spartacus. The possibility of a full-fledged war with Rome draws near.

The hit gladiator drama promises to deliver another thrilling ride loaded with blood, sex, violence, and twisted, complex relationships between the gladiators and the Romans. In other words, totally addictive historical fantasy.
