The Starz network announced that the next season of Spartacus, titled Spartacus: War of the Damned, will be the show's last, according to Collider. This will mark the show's third season, or fourth if you're counting the short prequel season that premiered in January of 2011. Here is the official synopsis for the War of the Damned, according to a press release from the network:
The final chapter of the series takes place following the defeat of Roman commander Gaius Claudius Glaber. Spartacus and his men have amassed major victories against the Romans after the Battle of Vesuvius. These victories have not only forged the legend of Spartacus, but have greatly increased the ranks of the rebellion slaves to more than 30,000. Rome is indeed beginning to tremble at the threat Spartacus now represents.
The new season is in production now and will begin airing in January of 2013. Unlike other shows that linger around well past their expiration date, it looks like Spartacus is going out on top. If you want to catch up on the entire series before the last season debuts, Starz is re-airing all of the episodes in chronological order starting on June 8.
