    • Well – Spartacus dies in the 3rd battle (in real life), don’t think they can drag it that long without being killer boring! But I agree, great story line.

      • How do you know he died , no historian has ever said Spartacus died by roman hands only Hollywood it is possible he escaped

        • No spartacus did not die in the dies in the 3rd battle (in real life), Plutarch, Appian and Florus all claim that Spartacus died during the battle, however Appian also reports that his body was never found. Plutarch writes that Spartacus merely wished to escape north into Cisalpine Gaul and disperse his men back to their homes.

  • This should go on for three more seasons… Please

    Comment by Leon Smith – December 23, 2012 04:06 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • To continue loving Spartacus the story line should continue to be catchy, instead of making the season for about a battle for supremacy between Spartacus and crassus, why not make it about fighting them fighting together for the total liberation of Rome, then you offer the avenue for more combat, sex and determination,.an African leader said that there is no liberation until the total liberation of all African countries, so let Spartacus fight and instill democracy in Rome.
    This extention gives room for more combat and that’s all we look forward to……….

    • I get the feeling you (and other commenters here) are unaware that Spartacus is actually based on historical events. Therefore, they can’t just make up a “liberation of Rome” nor can they stretch this to more seasons as the war only went so long.

  • Only good seasons were one and two, even though spartacus wasn’t in the second. STOP STOP STOP spartacus now is not the spartacus we know and luv. This show is now horrible RIP

    Comment by davis – December 28, 2012 11:05 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Spartacus is done, and it has nothing to do with this season being the last one. The show ended the second they left the arena. The only thing they could do at this point would be to make more more prequels, or find a way to return spartacus to the arena.

    Comment by matt – January 1, 2013 03:06 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE SPARTACUS IS ENDING SO SOON BUT ALL THE SAME I JUST WANT TO THAT IT HAS REALLY BEEN A GREAT AND CAPTIVATING MOVIE TO WATCH AND I WANT TO GIVE A BIG KUDOZ TO THE PRODUCERS AND THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE STORY LINE AND THE WHOLE MAKEUP.

  • Wow!!! Can’t believe they are ending it!!! I think they should have gone at least another year! The new shows STARZ have on it suck!

    Comment by Cheryl – January 11, 2013 08:18 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • History has it that Spartacus defeated five(5) Roman armies. Extending the movie to take us through all of the story would be a welcome idea. At least we expect it to last up to Season 6. Thanks to STARZ.

  • Nobody now if spartacus died because the body of the slave who challenged the might and the power of Ancient Rome was never found. There is a legend that he actually managed to escape from the Romans.

  • WHY DID THEY SHOW SPARTACUS FILLING UP THE DITCH WITH DEAD SLAVES TO FORM A BRIDGE TO CROSS?WHEN HISTORY TELLS THAT HE FILLED THE DITCH WITH EARTH,BOUGHS OF TREES AND TIMBER.TO ME THAT IS A PUNCH BELOW THE BELT FOR SUCH A GREAT HERO WITH NOTHING BUT RESPECT FOR HUMAN LIFE.I DON’T GET IT.THEY MALKE HIM OUT TO BE MERCIFUL ETC. AND THEN PUT SUCH A MORBID LIE IN THE STORYLINE,IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENCE.

  • Gannicus, needs to expand his role!!! He needs to play more of (Ancient Roman), or (Greek) myth characters!!!!! Like, (Romulus, & Remus), or (Hercules)!! Too super hot, not to expose his abs!!! Worked hard to get there, now he needs to show them off more!!! Beautiful, teeth, and bones structure!!! Looks great w/long, blonde hair!!! The movie (TROY), would have been perfect for him!!!!!! <3

  • Spartacus is a movie in my eyes.. That it has moved me in many ways from each season. To see that this can not be the END off the story. To F***ing Roman ways, but to see Julius Caesar fall like they really did in 100 BC….Suck Jupiter c***………….

    Comment by Michael – April 13, 2013 01:25 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • This is the best series i have never seen,although spartacus died in the battle but we need to know how other people take in charge of the revolution of roman empire after spartacus fall?we need to know how Crassus,Julius Caesar,Pompo and the whole republic of rome ended?i think the series should continue on other people who dared to take the spartacus position to watch the end of roman empire!Please director of Spartacus let us know more what happen after Spartacus fall and the end of roman empire!

  • I presume the story of Spartacus is based on Roman history and the legend himself, the story cannot be extended it has to be played according to history. The movie makers are awesome they are doing a great job, well done.

    Comment by Steve – May 2, 2013 12:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The shows from the first SPARTACUS to the last one WAR OF THE DAMMED were done very well from all the actors . The passing of Andy Whitfield was a great loss he made a very good Spartacus.The show took on a diffrent path just the way it was suppose to and as we all know the show must come to an end and it did. The good thing is we can buy the movie in sept.
