San Diego Comic-Con 2012 : The Last Stand of Spartacus

Named in such a dramatic way because I can't figure out if it is Spartacus's Last Stand or Spartacus'. I blame the school system.

On the heels of Starz’ announcement that the upcoming season, “Spartacus: War of the Damned” (premiering January 2013) will be the final chapter of the internationally-applauded franchise, stars Liam McIntyre and Manu Bennett will join executive producer/creator, Steven S. DeKnight at San Diego’s Comic-Con for what has been one of the most well-attended and lively panels for the past three years with standing-room only crowds. This summer’s event is sure to be no different as fans will get the very first opportunity to see new footage and hear about the upcoming and final season which DeKnight has promised will be “epic on a scale you will not believe.”

Production is currently underway in New Zealand. Liam and Manu will travel around the globe to be with the fans for just one day, before heading back to finish filming (production wraps in the fall). This is the first, and perhaps only, opportunity to hear from Liam, Manu and Steven together and get the inside story on the final season. “Spartacus: War of the Damned” is scheduled to premiere in January 2013 on STARZ.

Liam McIntyre (Spartacus), Manu Bennett (Crixus) and Steven S. DeKnight (subject to change) will be on hand and beheading no one on Friday, July 13th. Panel: 5:45-6:45pm . Location: Room 6BCF

Side note: HOLY CRAP!! Friday the 13th at SDCC!! ~Does happy dance~
