‘Spartacus: War of the Damned': Before “The End Begins” Check Out These Dramatic Photos

The beginning of the end of Spartacus’s (Liam McIntyre) epic tale is still a week away, but Starz has released a selection of cast photos and images from the final season, Spartacus: War of the Damned, to prepare fans for the battle-heavy season to come. Check out the gallery below for a sneak peek at the bloody action that lies ahead.

The series will pick up months after the death of Gaius Claudius Glaber (Craig Parker), with Spartacus and his rebel army winning victory after victory over Rome as they creep closer toward an all-out war. Meanwhile, the Roman Senate will turn to the powerful politician Marcus Crassus (Simon Merrells) to stop Spartacus’s rebellion, and Crassus, in turn, will enlist the help of Julius Caesar (Todd Lasance).

It won’t all be strategy and battles though. The death of Ashur (Nick Tarabay) inspires Naevia (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) and Crixus (Manu Bennett) to join forces, while Gannicus (Dustin Clare) will begin a relationship with the dangerous Saxa (Ellen Hollman).

Spartacus: War of the Damned premieres Friday, January 25th at 9PM on Starz.
