‘Spartacus: Blood and Sand’ Season 2 Potentially Delayed

Andy Whitfield

Here at The Flickcast there is near unanimous love for the Starz Spartacus: Blood and Sand series. With its blatant gladiator-driven homo-eroticism, 300-level gore, violence and the treacherous characters whose destinies are tied to the sands of the Roman Arena of Capua and the House of Batiatus, there’s something for everyone.

Unfortunately, Spartacus lead Andy Whitfield has been diagnosed with a treatable form of non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, which leaves fans wondering just how Starz will handle Andy’s indefinite leave from the show while he is in treatment. A recent statement from Starz Entertainment indicates that it will postpone production on season 2, titled ‘Spartacus: Vengeance,’ while Whitfield undergoes cancer treatments.

Show writer Maurissa Tancharoe, elaborates via Twitter: “The second season is still happening; however, it is on hold at the moment due to star Andy Whitfield’s health problems.” Another tweet seemed to reassure fans that season 2 is definitely not cancelled declaring, “Season two of #Spartacus has NOT been cancelled. Don’t know where that rumor came from.”

Rumors have also surfaced that a prequel series could be under way with a younger actor filling Whitfield’s role as Spartacus, but it’s not clear if Lucy Lawless and John Hannah will be starring in that as well. NY Magazine seems to be confirming that Starz will be developing a 6-episode mini-series prequel to keep momentum going with the show’s nearly one million weekly viewers. Whatever happens, we wish Andy Whitfield a speedy recovery.

    this is the beast series i have ever watched with its 300 like detail, and episodes that reward you every time but still keep you guessing. Andy i hope you can recover with out any problems.

    P.S. i would much rather see Spartacus delayed and with Andy, then some young punk and sooner on the TV.

    thanks for your time, And get well Andy much love bro.

I look forward to seeing it every week and you will be in all of our prayers. I wish you well in your treatment and hope you are doing well, all things considered. Good luck

    Fucking best show ever made. I agree with you guys.Bruce if you don’t like it don’t watch it. I’m sure you would rather be watching Sex and the City or whatever the gay community is into these days. Leave the bad ass shows to the bad asses. Kill them all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I overheard about Spartacus from my girlfriend, I am not usually a fan of season shows, but decided to give this one a shot. I am very appreciative how detailed the story line is, and how it definatily messes with my mind about what I think is going to happen doesnt, I am like ok nice twist….I, WE ALL HOPE YOU GET BETTER ANDY, I WISH I COULD BE IN THE SECOND SEASON….I WOULD LOVE TO BE A GLADIATOR..to work with the crew of this show would be a dream come true, fantastic is all I can say, one show that keeps me up after I get off work at 6 am in the morning, thank you again. My regards to Andy’s family.
