Raking in 1.4 million viewers for the premiere of the new season ‘SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE’ – Starz follow up season to Blood and Sand added a further 10% to its audience with this new entry. Melbourne local Liam McIntyre stepped into the role after an exhaustive audition process after fellow Australian Andy Whitfield stepped down due to lymphoma (which tragically would claim his life in September 2011 – one of the most unfair and heartbreaking losses to Australian talent in recent years).
It seems the introduction of McIntrye has put paid to any notions of support for the show and its new star as the results are in and they are GANGBUSTERS!
GO AUSSIE GO!!
