Team Spartacus Previews Final Season: Is [Spoiler] Alive? The Very Last Scene Revealed?

Get More: Comic-Con, Scoop, Video

“Bittersweet” and “epic-sad” are among the words used by the Spartacus cast to describe the mood as the Starz series films its final season, subtitled War of the Damned.

That said, there is a final fight to be fought, per lore – “It’s time to enter the War of the Damned and get to the big finale,” said Manu Bennett, who plays Crixus, during Team Spartacus’ stop at TVLine’s Comic-Con suite — and the show is pulling out all the stops to go out with a bang. “Everything is super-sized this season,” show boss Steven S. DeKnight marveled. “Every single [script] is just ridiculously gigantic.”

As is the intensity, including a scene that series lead Liam McIntyre and Bennett just filmed that they hailed as “one of the biggest [things], dramatically, we’ve ever done.”

But wait — speaking of Sparty women, Lucy Lawless is touring the Con with this troupe. What the what? Alas, the actress was cagey about if and how Lucretia fits into the new episodes, given how Spartacus: Vengeance ended. “She’s hanging angrily from a branch, holding her baby!” she joked… I think. Press play to hear more and arrive at your own conclusions, and scroll down for a few new trailer.

  • I would Love if there was a Lucretia flashback with Batiatus! Just to say goodbye to them.

    BTW, Both Manu and Cynthia look great together :) She looks very pretty with longer hair.

  • I dont want it to end, I’m so sad to know this is the last, with the slower pace of the last season i feel they needed at least 2 not 1 more seasons to conclude, damn you starz.

  • Just started catching up on this show. I had a hard time getting into it at first but I love it now. Sad to hear it has to end after one more season but it has been quality entertainment.
