While you wait for Starz to (hopefully) resume Spartacus: Blood and Sand next year (sadly, without Andy Whitfield), tide yourself over with this exclusive trailer for Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, the prequel to the network’s beloved series. And Jupiter’s c—, does it look like appointment viewing! Blood! Sex! More blood! More sex! The prequel — airing Jan. 21 — follows champion gladiator Gannicus (Dustin Clare) and Batiatus (John Hannah), who seeks to overthrow his father. Along with Hannah, expect to see other Blood and Sand alums in the prequel: Lucy Lawless reprises her role as Lucretia, and Peter Mensah returns to play Oenomaus. Enjoy the exclusive trailer — and its shirtless stars — after the jump. Careful parents — this somewhat NSFW trailer isn’t for the kiddies.
