"It's such an incredible honor to be invited to return to the world of Spartacus and to be met with unbridled creative support from my colleagues at Starz and Lionsgate. Together we are crafting something truly unique and unusual for the next chapter in this epic story," said DeKnight.

Kathryn Busby, President, Original Programming, Starz, said, "It has been over a decade since Spartacus delighted international audiences and we are thrilled to reimagine and expand this gripping, action-packed drama for our viewers today. Spartacus has deeply invested fans who are eager for its return, and we look forward to working with Steven on this exciting next chapter."

Lionsgate Television will produce the series with Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Karen Bailey, and Directors, Original Programming, Giovanna Desselle, and Alex Alberts overseeing the project for Starz.
