Spartacus: House of Ashur will be produced by Lionsgate Television for STARZ. Steveb S. DeKnight returns as showrunner and executive producer with Nick Tarabay returning as the villainous “Ashur.”
Spartacus: House of Ashur will be 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, played by fan favorite Nick Tarabay, 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?
Nick Tarabay returns as the villainous “Ashur,” the iconic role he originated in the series’ original run. Spartacus creator, writer and executive producer Steven S. DeKnight serves as showrunner and executive producer.
Spartacus: House of Ashur will be available soon on STARZ.
