OK, I was a tad concerned about this as Bravo has been binned - but fear not anyone else who was a fan of Spartacus: Blood and Sand - the 'filler' before season 2 starts (which is set before Season 1) is due on Sky 1 in Feb (exact date not confirmed).
"Coming soon to Sky1 HD is the highly anticipated sequel to Spartacus: Blood and Sand is Spartacus: Gods of the Arena.
The House of Batiatus is on the rise, basking in the glow of its infamous champion Gannicus, whose skill with a sword is matched only by his thirst for wine and women. These are the times a young Batiatus has been waiting for.
Poised to overthrow his father and take control; he’ll freely betray anyone to ensure his gladiators are in the highest demand. And he’ll have his loyal and calculating wife Lucretia by his side for every underhanded scheme, drawing on the brazen talents of her seductive friend Gaia when it counts. Together, they will stop at nothing to deceive the masses, seize power, and bleed Capua dry in this audacious prequel to “Spartacus: Blood and Sand.”"
