Starz has renewed its Spartacus
series for a third season ahead of the premiere of season two, Spartacus: Vengeance, on Jan. 27.

Season three (as yet untitled) will begin production in New
Zealand in early 2012.

The most recent version of Spartacus, the prequel Gods
of the Arena
, averaged 6.2 million total viewers per episode across all
linear channels and on-demand in its Jan. 2011 run.

Australian actor Liam McIntyre assumed the title role in Vengeance after the death of original
star Andy Whitefield in September.
