The following message from Andy was posted on the Official Spartacus forum:
To all of you incredibly generous human beings, who have supported, cared and collectively shared your stories, well wishes and inspiring words, all of which have had a profound and moving impact on me. Your time, energy and compassion have been the lift needed to glide over some of the bumpy terrain of the last few months. Thank you.
I am now training again and hungry to reunite with the fantastic cast and crew.
After this unexpected challenge but truly rewarding chapter, I have emerged feeling stronger, with a greater focus, commitment and passion and even more profound love of my family and friends.
I am very grateful for the extraordinary journey that was Season 1 and now after my own personal shake up, am even more determined and passionately committed to having Season 2 be very special indeed.
Thank you all again for your ongoing support.
