In the days following the sad passing of Spartacus: Blood and Sand star Andy Whitfield — who died Sunday, Sept. 11 at the age of 39 from non-Hodgkin Lymphoma — tributes from colleagues and fans alike came pouring in for the late actor.

And the tributes continue: In honor of his memory, Starz announced that beginning at 9 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 2, it will run a Spartacus: Blood and Sand five-episode marathon. The marathon will include show’s premiere and finale, as well as fan-favorite episodes that highlight some of Whitfield’s most memorable moments on the show. In addition to next month’s tribute, the network also plans to re-air the entire first season of Spartacus: Blood and Sand beginning Dec. 16.
