“SPARTACUS: THE COMPLETE SERIES” is the classic tale of Spartacus, the Republic’s most infamous rebel who comes alive in the first season of “Spartacus: Blood and Sand.” Then comes “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena,” the prequel that explores a deadly history before the arrival of Spartacus, and the death he now carries with him. The second season, “Spartacus: Vengeance,” continues to follow Spartacus as he is faced with a choice to either satisfy his personal need for vengeance, or make the sacrifices necessary to keep his growing army from breaking apart at the seams. Finally, in “Spartacus: War of the Damned,” Spartacus will carve his name into history as he plots to avenge his wife’s death and leads Batiatus' slaves in a bloody uprising that will not be forgotten or equaled.
“The gods finally bless us with the complete collection,” says creator and executive producer Steven S. DeKnight. “Spartacus was a true labor of love for everyone who worked on it and I’m incredibly proud to present all 39 episodes in stunning High-def for the fans to enjoy at their leisure, but make sure you watch them in the order they first aired to revel in the experience as originally intended.”
