'Spartacus: Blood and Sand' Season 2 Potentially Delayed

‘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.

    Nicole here and I can assure you all that Spartacus season 2 is almost here and will be action-packed. I work for DISH Network and we’re all anticipating a prequel to a show that made us all upgrade to HD. There’s no better way to watch gladiators duke it out than in the best HD provided by DISH. Andy I heart you and can’t wait to catch you in HD for season 3!

    This is one of the Best Series ever on TV; I love this show from the very start until the last episode, which was one of the best ever; being a tough guy I almost cried when Spartacus had to kill his best friend vargo. If these actors don’t win some awards then none of those awards show are worth a nickle.
