Star of 'Spartacus' recovering, ready soon for season two

Fans of Spartacus on Starz can now rejoice. The racey period piece about the Roman Empire is coming back in a six episode prequel early next year, and production is expected to resume soon on season two.

The show was delayed when star Andy Whitfield was diagnosed with early-stage non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Sources at the network say Whitfield is recoving and he will be in season two. On the Red Carpet's Chris Balish caught up with one of the stars of the show, actress Lesley-Ann Brandt, and asked about Whitfield's health. "He’s great. I just got an email from him and he’s doing really good. He’s just about finished his treatment."

Brandt went on to say that fans of the show can expect plenty more of the show, "We’re ready to give you guys another couple of great seasons of Spartacus for sure.”

Spartacus will air a six episode prequel this summer, followed by season two, next year on Starz.
