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.
The second season is going to be a PREQUEL. It will have all of the same characters plus more and will show how everyone came to be where they were in the first season. There is a good trailer on Starz or you can watch one here....http://www.starz.com/originals/spartacus

"The House of Batiatus is on the rise, basking in the glow of its infamous champion Gannicus, whose skill with a sword is matched only by his thirst for wine and women. These are the times a young Batiatus has been waiting for. Poised to overthrow his father and take control, he’ll freely betray anyone to ensure his gladiators are in the highest demand. And he’ll have his loyal and calculating wife Lucretia by his side for every underhanded scheme, drawing on the brazen talents of her seductive friend Gaia when it counts. Together, they will stop at nothing to deceive the masses, seize power, and bleed Capua dry in this audacious prequel to “Spartacus: Blood and Sand.”
