Last month, Starz offered a brief glimpse of Liam McIntyre in the title role of "Spartacus: Vengeance," the long awaited new season set to debut early next year. Although the original Spartacus, Andy Whitfield was forced to step down from his role to battle Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, most fans gave McIntyre the benefit of the doubt based on the strength of the pictures.
And in this newly released teaser trailer from Starz, fans can finally see McIntyre in action alongside the rest of the cast as Spartacus and his comrades wage a full blown slave rebellion against the Romans.
The trailer depicts several instances of the series' stylized violence, the reemergence of Lucretia (Lucy Lawless) and the return of… Gannicus (Dustin Clare)?!
Peter Mensah, Manu Bennett) , Nick Tarabay, Craig Parker and Viva Bianca will also be returning in the new season.
"Spartacus: Vengeance" will debut in January 2012 on Starz.
