The first season, meanwhile, will follow Spartacus who is condemned to the brutal world of the arena where blood and death are primetime entertainment. However, not all battles are fought upon the sands. Treachery, corruption, and the allure of sensual pleasures will constantly test Spartacus. To survive, he must become more than a man. More than a gladiator. He must become a legend.
