We already told you that Spartacus Blood and Sand has been renewed for season two, after changing its lead due to health problems from Andy Whitfield.
But how could we wait for an extra year to see more of the exciting Starz show, and to get dragged to the Arenas once again?
Well, the network was smart enough as to put to the works a prequel for Spartacus Blood and Sand called Spartacus Gods of the Arena, that premiered on January 21st. And now Starz premieres the all new episode, number five, called Reckoning, on Friday February 18 10PM
