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, Spartacus is more determined than ever to bring down the entire Roman Republic. Following Ashur’s death, Naevia and Crixus fight as one. 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 Marcus Crassus, a wealthy, strategic politician, for aid. 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.

I was a big fan of the series Rome, and I feel like if Rome had the commitment, resource wise, to go four reasons that would have wrapped up nicely as this one did. A part of me almost feels like it could have gone one more season... but I also fear that could have been a tipping point because this was satisfactory all the way through.
First, there are 4 seasons. The first season is called Spartacus: Blood and Sand. The actor who originally plays Spartacus is named Andy Whitfield and I am very sorry to say after this season he passed away from cancer. The link is [...] if you wish to see who he was. I do have to say it was a bit tough to take to his replacement later on as he was really loved. But it did not take long to fall in love with his character again even with a new actor by the name of Liam McIntyre who does an outstanding job playing Spartacus. After Blood and Sand was done they came up with a prequel called Spartacus: Gods of the Arena. This was 10 episodes long and it shows what events take place before Spartacus arrives and the circumstances in which he finds himself training to be a Gladiator. I will say this was not what he wanted, and the idea of Freedom is a theme that pounds away at you through the whole series due to his new surroundings. So in the Prequel Gods of the Arena, the Champion of the house is called Gannicus. For you ladies, I would suggest you google him....His real name is Dustin Clare and some feel he stole the show with his performance.
I can tell you events in each film but it will really ruin it for you. So after this prequel "Gods of the Arena", the next season is called Spartacus: Vengeance. Now this is where the original actor who played Spartacus was replaced. Again the actor who took this role is named Liam McIntyre and he does a brilliant job from start to the last episode and the conclusion of the series. The 4th and final season is called Spartacus: War of the Damned. Which is what I am suppose to be reviewing. In this last installment, they bring back many of the characters I have not mentioned that you will grow to love and root for which makes the last season War of the Damned brilliant and on your seat waiting for days to pass by so you can get to the next episode. In addition to the character Gannicus who plays in "The Gods of the Arena", the prequel, there is another character I should have mentioned sooner. The character's name is Crixus played by Manu Bennett. He is just as important and amazing as anyone in a lead acting role and in all great series or films, The Hero Spartacus also has to have a counter part to argue and fight with. You will enjoy this character Crixus and the evolution of his character through out his time in the series. In the final season "The War of The Damned", Spartacus faces his most intelligent and fierce opponent from the Roman Army, called Crassus played by Simon Merrells. Spartacus and Crassus att odds and destine to face each other, one fighting for glory of the Republic of Rome and the other Spartacus, the fight For freedom not just for Gladiator's, but for all woman, men, and humanity. The story just builds up until the last episode.
You can google "Starz Spartacus Series" and read about the characters and the story lines if you wish. I gave everyone the names of each series as they aired in order to clear up the confusion. So in telling you what it is all about and giving details and maybe hurting your experience, I will just say that I personally loved this series and it is one of my favorites I have ever seen. If you liked Braveheart, and Gladiator? This is a little like those great films but way more violent, and a ton more sexual content. Not good for children, or even teenagers depending on your flexibility with what age you allow your children to watch Rated R, to soft porn? This is in my humble opinion just for adults only. So just a friendly warning. So everyone asking for the 4th series? You have them all named in here. Spartacus : War of the Damned being the last season. It has everything you could think of or want. Themes of love, hate, Slaves, Freedom with the highest cost, bonds of brotherhood, the complexity of the time period, family dynamics and bonds between fathers and sons, Sacrifice and finally betrayal. It has everything you want in this type of genre of film. There are so many characters I did not mention or we would be here all day. I hope if you love these types of movies you will give this a chance. You will be taken in from the very first episode. They waste no time in any episode moving this along. I loved it and I continue to watch it over and over. Start with the first season Spartacus: Blood and Sand. You will not stop watching I promise you. Worth every dime. Hope this helped and cleared things up for everyone who were confused on how many seasons and why. Enjoy......
