Spartacus: Final season to be ‘brutal’
Spartacus creator Stephen S DeKnight has said the show will come to a “brutal” end.
The drama is to end its run after the season three finale and there are set to be some horrific sights in the gory historical show.
Stephen told TV Guide: “It’s a brutal, brutal season. One of the things we wanted to explore is that grey area of mortality. What do the Romans really do to bring Spartacus down?
“On the other side of it, what are the rebels willing to do? The rebels… historically… basically raped and pillaged their way through the Republic. It was not a pretty sight. They do some pretty f**ked up things this season.”
It was previously rumoured that a spin-off show would launch once Spartacus ends with actor Todd Lasance playing the part of Caesar.
However, Todd recently said he was unaware of any plans.
The final series of Spartacus will begin in the UK on Sky1 in March.
