Spartacus: Blood and Sand Season 2

While the second season of Spartacus: Blood and Sand has been postponed:

LOS ANGELES, CA—Andy Whitfield, who plays the title role in Starz Original series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand," announced today he has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and will begin treatment immediately in New Zealand. Source

 

I wondered, how many knew that Spartacus was an actual person, or so legend says. Said to be a Thracian slave, he led an uprising against the Roman Government back in 73 B.C.

His wife was a priestess of Orpheus–Dionysus, and just like in the series, she had visions. In a dream, she saw the Orphic serpent wrapped around Spartacus’ head. This meant he would do great deeds and would die a hero’s death. And, alas, her prophecy was brought about when Spartacus led a revolt against the Romans, and even though it was soon brought to an end, he was given a King’s sacred death.

Pretty interesting, hu?

Wishing Andy Whitfield lots of healing and prayers. Here’s hoping he makes a speedy recovery!

  1. I looked Spartacus up when I started to watch the season and found that history to be most fascinating. I add my prayers to yours for his recovery.

    1. Brita,

      Last i heard there will be a second season. As to whether it will be a prequel to this season until Andy is healed, or whether it will be the second story to the one just ending remains to be seen. I know my husband even got into this show. He loved it and was more crazy about not missing one than I was.

  2. I think the show did an awesome job showing the rituals, customs, and Paganism as to how Rome was during that time, especially concerning slaves, the social status and ladder, etc. The rich were ruthless and cunning while to be a slave was…well more gruesome at times than one might think.
