Starz "Spartacus" Coming To SyFy

Body

It's learned the popular Starz original series Spartacus is coming to SyFy as the network has acquired the basic cable rights to all 39 episodes.

Deadline has it that Spartacus will debut June 26th at 10PM, following original series Defiance and Dominion.

“Our strategy of acquiring hit shows to complement our premium original scripted series has really resonated with our audience,” said Chris Regina, SVP, Programming, Syfy. “With its action-soaked storylines and powerful characters, Spartacus will be a dynamic addition to our schedule.”

Plot:

Gaius Claudius Glaber is dead. Many months have passed since his defeat, and the rebel army, led by Spartacus and his generals Crixus, Gannicus and Agron, continue to amass victories over Rome. With the rebel numbers swelling to thousands of freed slaves, it has become a force that has started to challenge even the mighty armies of Rome. 

Spartacus is more determined than ever to bring down the entire Roman Republic. Following the death of Ashur, Naevia and Crixus fight as one with newfound strength and determination. And Gannicus, always seeking to embrace life to the fullest, shares his bed with the beautiful and dangerous Saxa. 

Together, the rebels engage in one bloody skirmish after another and prepare for the inevitable: a full out war with Rome. 

The Roman Senate turns to its wealthiest citizen, Marcus Crassus, for aid. A powerful, strategic politician, he respects his opponent and refuses to make the same mistakes Glaber and his predecessors have. With a young and fiercely competitive Julius Caesar as an ally, Crassus is determined to crush Spartacus and his rebellion. 

The epic conclusion of a legendary journey, Spartacus: War of the Damned will unleash a battle unlike anything ever seen before.
