The world of Spartacus is expanding once again with a new series at Starz. The cabler has ordered a 10-episode season of Spartacus: House of Ashur, starring Nick Tarabay as the villainous character he played in the original Spartacus series, which aired for four seasons from 2010 to 2013.

Spartacus creator, writer and executive producer Steven S. DeKnight is also returning as showrunner and executive producer.

Starz describes House of Ashur as a “history-bending, erotic, thrilling, roller-coaster experience that builds on everything that made the original series a colossal hit. The series poses the question: what if Ashur … hadn’t died on Mount Vesuvius at the end of Spartacus: Vengeance? And what if he had been gifted the gladiator school once owned by Batiatus in return for aiding the Romans in killing Spartacus and putting an end to the slave rebellion?”

So many questions to answer!

“To be afforded the opportunity to return a decade later to a series you loved is such a rare, wonderful opportunity,” DeKnight says in a statement. “I could not be more excited to craft this next chapter in the Spartacus saga with Starz, Lionsgate, and the incomparable Nick Tarabay.”

Adds Kathryn Busby, president of original programming at Starz: “A decade ago the groundbreaking original Spartacus’ captivated viewers worldwide and we’re excited to deliver more enthralling, high-octane drama that our fervent fans have been anticipating. It is an honor to team up with Steven again as he expands upon the storytelling within this thrilling, action-packed universe.”
