Too bad about Sparticus being too sick to make the second season.
I'll give it a shot, just because the series was good.
I was thinking about how they would make a second season. I'm not so sure they could do it well. As I understand history, Spartacus and Crixus make an army and take on Rome. That would be a pretty tough transition from the first season IMO. What made the series so good (IMO at least) was that there were SO MANY subplots. Crixus and Nivea, Varo trying to get out, then his wife problems, his wife after his death, Crixus and Lucrecia, Ilithya versus everybody, Ashur vs Crixus, Doctore, Barka, and everyone else, Barka and his homo and on and on and on.
IMO, it would be tough to recreate that deep of a storyline in a second season with ALL NEW people except Sparticus, Crixus, and maybe Mira, Ashur, the crazy German and Doctore.
Pretty tough IMO. I'd be super content just leaving it where it ended.
