More blood will spill on Blu-ray this September.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay Entertainment will unleash 'Spartacus: Vengeance - The Complete Second Season' on Blu-ray on September 11.

When it premiered January 27th on Starz, “Spartacus: Vengeance - The Complete Second Season” delivered the highly anticipated continuation of the epic series giving audiences even more spectacle, sex, swords and scandal! Liam McIntyre (Radev) takes on the role of Spartacus, with Lucy Lawless (“Xena: Warrior Princess”) reprising her role as Lucretia. Peter Mensah ('300') returns as Oenomaus, Manu Bennett ('The Marine') as Crixus, Dustin Clare (“Underbelly”) as Gannicus and Craig Parker ('The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers') as the cruel Gaius Claudius Glaber.

“Spartacus: Vengeance - The Complete Second Season” begins on the heels of the violent escape from the House of Batiatus that concluded “Spartacus: Blood and Sand,” the gladiator rebellion continues and begins to strike fear into the heart of the Roman Republic. Gaius Claudius Glaber and his Roman troops are sent to Capua to crush the growing band of freed slaves that Spartacus leads before it can inflict further damage. Spartacus is presented the choice of satisfying his personal need for vengeance against the man who condemned his wife to slavery and eventual death or making the larger sacrifices necessary to keep his budding army from breaking apart. Containing all of the blood-soaked action, exotic sexuality, and villainy and heroism that has come to distinguish the series, the tale of Spartacus resumes in larger-than-life fashion.

The 3-disc set will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Starz Studios featurette, 5 Behind-the-scenes featurettes, Bloopers, and Blu-ray exclusive audio commentaries and nine extended episodes.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $59.99.
