Looks like Gannicus will be back in Spartacus: Vengeance (Season 2) from an article that appeared in the Denver Post today:
As hard-drinking, hard-fighting Gannicus, the Aussie actor has the lead role in the six-episode prequel. The self-destructive gladiator character has a "great arc," he promised. "The man we meet at the beginning of the six episodes and the man we know by the end are two very different men. There's a lot more to him than meets the eye."
What meets the eye, as fans expect, is a great deal of graphic blood and sex, continuing the stylized, graphic-novel look of the genre piece.
Clare is on board for the second season of "Spartacus: Blood and Sand." "We finish filming next November," he said.
