Spartacus: War of the Damned is the fourth installment in the Spartacus series, and the official third season after its prequel, Spartacus: Vengeance. It is the final season of the series, concluding the end of the Third Servile War. War of the Damned premiered on January 25, 2013 and concluded on April 12, 2013.

Six months after the Battle of Vesuvius and countlesss other victories, Spartacus leads an army of slaves that causes the mighty Roman Republic to begin to truly fear for itself. Faced with an enemy like himself, Spartacus and his rebels are thrown into their most difficult conflict yet and are forced to make compromising decisions, uneasy alliances and ultimately prepare for a fight to the bitter end.

SynopsisEdit

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 mistake Glaber and his predecesors have. With a young and fiercely competitve 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.

Historical AccuracyEdit

  • After Crassus ends Spartacus' revolt, over 6,000 surviving rebel slaves are crucified along the Appian Way.
  • Other generals fighting against Spartacus' revolt were Lucius Gellius Publicola and Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus Clodianus, however the war against the Consuls isn't portrayed in the series.
    • War of the Damned combines events that occurred during the rebel's war with the Consuls and the war with Crassus.
  • Historically, Crixus leaves Spartacus' group with a small amount of the rebels and is later killed by Publicola and Clodianus.
    • Crixus had already been killed before the war with Crassus.
  • Historically, Gannicus and Castus part ways with Spartacus during the war with Crassus. This, however, does not happen in the series.
  • Spartacus was presumed to have died in battle, but his body was never recovered.
  • There is no evidence suggesting that Julius Caesar had any part of the Third Servile War. This was done by the creators for creative and entertainment license.
    • it is interesting to note that very little information is known of Caesar during this time. All is known is that he was in Rome and that he was an elected Military Tribune so the possibility does exist that he may have played a role, but this cannot be confirmed.

TriviaEdit

  • This is the first and only season which doesn't showcase previous antagonists in the series.
  • The ending credits differ in this season in that it features changes based upon characters in their introduction and removes those that are no longer involved.
  • Spartacus was initially intended to return to fighting with a sword and shield combo as he did in Vengeance, but due to favour among fans and the lethality of the Dimachaeri style of fighting he almost solely fights as a dual-wielding combatant.
