‘Spartacus: War of the Damned – The Complete Third Season’ Bonus Clip Bids a ‘Bloody Farewell’

Starz’s epic ‘Spartacus: War of the Damned‘ may have come to its bloody and sandy end this past year, but we’re not saying our farewells just yet. The complete three-disc Blu-ray and DVD release of ‘Spartacus: War of the Damned — The Complete Third Season’ will hit stores September 3, with an option to pre-book now, and we’ve got an exclusive look at the cast and crew giving a “Bloody Farewell” to fans of the legendary drama.

Our exclusive look at the ‘Spartacus: War of the Damned — The Complete Third Season’ special features (shown above) highlights cast members Liam McIntyre (Spartacus), Ellen Hollman (Saxa), Dustin Clare (Gannicus), Manu Bennett (Crixus), Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Naevia), Todd Lasance (Caesar) and executive producer Rob Tapert as they fondly look back on the series, though not necessarily the grueling training that came with it.

“Probably wont miss the waking up at 4:30 in the morning to be covered in blood and scars, and thrown into a river to fight people in, and get punched in the face,” says series lead Liam McIntyre. Co-star Ellen Hollman had a slightly more upbeat take on the matter, saying, “I was like a kid in a candy store. You are surrounded by gorgeous gladiators, and plenty of sharp weapons to play with. Doesn’t get more perfect for me.”

Arriving September 3 (be sure to look out for our Blu-ray giveaway, as well!), the home release of ‘Spartacus: War of the Damned — The Complete Third Season’ also features such bloody good extras as:

  • SPARTACUS: The Legend Retold
  • The Price Of Being A Gladiator
  • A Bloody Farewell (shown above)
  • The Spoils Of War Revealed: Visual Effects
  • Adorning The Damned
  • The Mind Behind SPARTACUS
  • BLU-RAY™ EXCLUSIVES – Extended Episodes and Audio Commentaries!

The ‘War of the Damned’ might be over, but our clock rages on, counting down to ‘Spartacus” best and bloodiest home release yet on September 3. Check out our exclusive look at the “Bloody Farewell” from ‘Spartacus: War of the Damned — The Complete Third Season’ above, and tell us if you’ll bring the gladiators home in the comments!
