spartacus2 New Spartacus Season 3 Poster; Julius Caesar Spin Off in the Works?

It’s a bittersweet time to be a fan of Spartacus. The hit Starz series is inching ever closer to its epic season 3 – subtitled War of the Damned - and while the season will mark the series’ swan song, it is sure to pack plenty of action and memorable showdowns, even if there are undoubtedly more stories to tell in the world that the series has created.

During this final season, Spartacus (Liam McIntyre) will lead the slave rebellion against the forces of the Roman army, including Marcus Crassus (Simon Merrells) and young Gaius Julius Caesar (Todd Lasance). We’ve already seen some behind-the-scenes footage of the upcoming season, which will premiere early next year.

Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we now have our first glimpse of the new poster for War of the Damned. Check it out it below:

It’s remarkable how far a fierce expression and blood-dripping weapon can go in making McIntyre come across as a menacing force of  nature. Couple that with the army of battle-crying warriors behind him and the dramatic skyline, and this poster gives fans a strong idea of the intense conflict they can expect in this last season of Spartacus. However, if recent talk is any indication, the final moments of War of the Damned may not truly be the end.

According to Deadline, executive producer Robert Tapert is considering a spin-off centered on Julius Caesar.  As mentioned, that character will play a major role in this upcoming final season of Spartacus, and the conclusion of that series could easily set the stage for a show revolving around Caesar’s rise to power in Rome. Given the fact that Caesar is a recognizable (and highly marketable) historical figure, it would be easy for Starz to rein in additional interest in a spin-off series, in addition to retaining loyal Spartacus viewers.

Of course, any prospective spin-off would likely depend on how the character is received during his appearances on Spartacus. The character’s rise to power from Roman general to eventual dictator would likely capitalize on the political intrigue of the time and follow the civil war that arose from Caesar’s refusal to surrender his military command. If Lasance and, more importantly, Caesar himself manage to strike a chord with Spartacus viewers, expect Starz to get this one going sooner rather than later.

Would you be interested in a spin-off centering on Caesar? Are you looking forward to the final season of Spartacus? Let us know in the comments.

Spartacus: War of the Damned premieres January 25th, 2013 @9pm on Starz.

  1. Absolutely a must for me spartacus was amazing possibly the best t.v series I’ve ever watched Cesar is a must please make it happen.

    • stand to attention and join cause and say no to Caesar series. anything other than gaius Julius cornholio!

      • OH, JOSH AND SLEAZE WHERE ART THOU?

        • No way. Todd Lasance should be the new batman not Liam. That won’t be possible though because Todd will be too busy playing Ceaser In the new Spatacus spinoff that they just announced. The gods have heard my prayers. Sorry Eric, your a fan boy but I still feel sorry for people like you.

          • bite me jawsh!

          • don’t know what gods heard your prayers for a Caesar spinoff, cause as of 8..9..13 there isn’t any Caesar spinoff mentioned yet. so don’t get too excited there slawsh! HOW YOU LIKE MY CAPS JOSH!

          • ok its been announced! ben Affleck gets to f*ck up another superhero role!(daredevil)now batman! what a joke to give that role to bennifer! and not liam McIntyre. Spartacus as batman was a no brainer,liam is in tip top fighting condition! ready to kick supermans ass! lol..warner bros. and zack Snyder are gonna regret that choice! im not watching bennifer as batman! liams ready for the role as the terminator! arnolds too old! asta lavista baby!

  2. yes they should do another ceasar series or at least continue the story of crassus it would be cool to see him fall to the parthians and the battles would be awesome rome series was good but lacked the battle seens if they can revise this period it would be awesome and it was a time of many wars so the battles should be real intense and bloody.

  3. Yes!!! Absolutly make a spin off with Caesar and company. I would help you write it!! I purchased all 4 dvd’s, I love Spartacus and with I could’ve been apart of it. I love every single character.

  4. R.I.P. ANDY WHITFIELD!! never to be forgotten, forever to be missed!! YOU ARE SPARTACUS!!

  5. Heck yeah I want more!! Everyone I know who loves “Spartacus” would definitely watch and buy a series about Caesar! Especially if Starz can get Todd Lasance to play him again!! ADORED him in “War of the Damned”, bad guy status and all. Please make more shows!

  6. sorry Amanda, true Spartacus fans could care less about a Caesar spinoff! he was a punk! RISE OF THE LUDUS BABY!

  7. Please, please, please do film a spin-off featuring Julius C.

  8. Yes! Would absolutely watch a J.Caesar spin-off. Sparticus is and always will be the best show of all time!

    • yes Danielle. by far the greatest show in this life or the next! would love a spin off. but not Caesar. when he was raped by tiberious. a teenager! and he got his ass kicked by everyone, so to me he looks weak now, I want a rise of the ludus. pre Spartacus times featuring titus batiatus gladiators with fresh actors from new Zealand. WHAT LIES BENEATH YOUR FEET! SACRED GROUND! WATERED WITH TEARS OF BLOOD! AND ON THIS DAY. IT SHALL BE ROME WHO SHEDS THEM! anything gladiators baby!!!!

      • If you want to see the rise of the Batiatus ludus then watch the prequel episodes. Your obviously not a true fan of Spartacus show if you didn’t know about the prequel season.

        I’m looking forward to the new show based on Rome Triumverate (Ceaser, Crassus, Pompei and including the Agron character)

        “many of the cast members have alluded to the possibility. In a recent interview with the Boston Herald, Dan Feuerriegel, who plays Agron, indicated that he’d like a role in any possible spinoff. Agron was the only one of the four primary male characters that survived through the show. Simon Merrells, who functioned as the final season’s chief villain Crassus, has also indicated he’d be interested in reprising his character. Todd Lasance, who played Caesar, has expressed similar interest”

        • im one of the biggest fans of Spartacus. jawsh! I know gods of the arena was a fill in for sick andy. im talking about a show centered on titus batiatus ludus. he said his gladiators easily would of bested gannicus. a series with that story line pre quintus and lucretia would rock cause we never tire of the glory of the arena. Caesar wasn’t even part of Spartacus down fall and he was portrayed as a weak punk in Spartacus so no! to a Caesar spin off. and your wrong it isn’t a done deal like you claimed a while back. even a crassus pompei show with agron in it would be nice.so go watch ben Affleck try to play batman and enjoy your imaginary Caesar spin off too slawsh!

        • how come jules and jawsh have the same avatar? I know why its the same momo who said he would be too busy watching a Caesar spin off. ha ha what channel is that on? I know all about gods of the arena! rise of the ludus 50 years before Spartacus. with titus batiatus champions rise to glory with all new fresh actors is what I meant. but you misunderstood me. guess your too busy hoping for a Caesar and tiberious reunion! I am a true fan I hung out with liam McIntyre and got several things autographed. look him up on twitter and you might see me and my collection

  9. i would love to see another show even if it is about julias ceasar i loved spartacus best show ever and i am loyal fan for life

  10. Julius Caesar had nothing to do with spartacus whatsoever. Giving him a show from the point where they left him after Spartacus would just be completely fleshed out and fictional. Spartacus at least kept the line of things to a realistic point.

    • tell em dude nothing to do at all with spartacus

  11. hey jawsh. diners drive ins and dives guy fieri

  12. It is only rumours now, but if we get united and like this page https://www.facebook.com/MakeAJuliusCaesarSpinoff we can make it happen! Think about it, we are the fans, we decide with our demand!

  13. Ceaser spin offff!! Would be epic andd a whole new story that id love to see with so much story potential come on producersss u know thissss !RIP ANDY WHITFIELD=spartacus show
