Starz’s ‘Spartacus’ Series Finds New Life on Syfy

Spartacus Starz Syfy Series 2014
Starz

It’s been a difficult road for Starz to come up with anything as breakout as the 3.5-season ‘Spartacus‘ saga, but while ‘Outlander‘ will prove to be the next big concept series for the network, Syfy is giving ‘Spartacus’ another shot in the arena. All 39 episodes of the original run will soon air on the sci-fi network, albeit understandably toned down for content.

Where certain reports mistakenly listed that Syfy would produce new episodes of the gladiator-turned-freedom fighter series (historical spoiler alert: he died), for now Syfy only acquired rights to air a cleaned-up ‘Spartacus,’ including prequel series ‘Gods of the Arena’ and subsequent seasons ‘Vengeance’ and ‘War of the Damned.’ Syfy will begin running the franchise on June 26 at 10:00 P.M., following original series ‘Defiance’ and ‘Dominion.’

Said Syfy of the new acquisition to its lineup:

Our strategy of acquiring hit shows to complement our premium original scripted series has really resonated with our audience. With its action-soaked storylines and powerful characters, ‘Spartacus’ will be a dynamic addition to our schedule.

It’s certainly worth a rewatch (though you’ll undoubtedly want to see the series for yourself with all the blood and boobs intact), particularly given that ‘Arrow‘ already scooped up the likes of Manu Bennett (Crixus), Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Naevia) and Katrina Law (Nyssa al Ghul), and will likely continue to do so in the future. Come on, Liam McIntyre for Bruce Wayne!

Well, what do you think? Will you check out Syfy’s rerun of ‘Spartacus’ this June?
