Starz is planning a possibly spinoff of their popular Spartacus series that will center on Julius Caesar.
The Roman leader is making an appearance in the studio's upcoming third season titled Spartacus: War of the Damned, and will be played by Australian actor Todd Lasance.
Spartacus: War of the Damned starts after the killing of Roman commander Gaius Claudius Glaber. Spartacus (Liam McIntyre) and his men secure key victories against the Romans and grow their numbers to over 30,000 rebellion slaves.
Here is what Spartacus boss Steven DeKnight had to say about the possible spinoff.
"In the halls of Starz, we often whisper about a spinoff. We've set up a world that is just perfect to spin off into other areas during this time period. We are open to, down the road, revisiting this world, whether it's Julius Caesar, whether it's set in the same time period or whether it's a little later in the time period."
Spartacus: War of the Damned makes it debut Friday, January 25 at 9 p.m. ET on Starz.
