The debut episode of Spartacus: Vengeance is looming on the horizon and Starz has released a new trailer. Filled with gore and sword slashing action, I’m sure it will live up to the standards of the series’s previous iterations. Check it out below:

So what’d you guys think? I honestly thought this show wouldn’t be able to recover from Whitfield’s passing, but it looks like the new Spartacus played by Liam McIntyre is up to the task.

I just hope we finally get to see the slave rebellion in open war with the Roman Republic.  As long as the battle scenes aren’t entirely inaccurate, a la 300, I’ll be one happy fanboy.

I guess we’ll find out when the series returns January 27th. For more news about Spartacus and Starz original series, make sure you drop by their official website here.
