Following the death of Gaius Claudius Glaber, this new instalment in the Spartacus saga sees the rebel army swell to thousands of freed slaves. This formidable force, led by Spartacus (Liam McIntyre), alongside his generals Crixus (Manu Bennett), Gannicus (Dustin Clare) and Agron (Dan Feuerriegel) is determined to wage war on Rome. Meanwhile, the Roman Senate turns to Marcus Crassus (Simon Merrells), a wealthy, strategic politician, for aid. With a young Julius Caesar (Todd Lasance) as an ally, Crassus is hell bent on crushing the rebellion, starting with its iconic leader.

Also joining the cast is Cynthia Addai-Robinson as Naevia, the fierce former body slave; Ellen Hollman as Saxa, the physically striking warrior rescued from a Germanic slave ship; Pana Hema-Taylor as Nasir, a young Syrian captive freed by Spartacus; Christian Antidormi as Tiberius, the eldest son of Marcus Crassus; Gwendoline Taylor as Sibyl, A shy, sweet and innocent young slave and Jenna Lind as Kore, a beautiful house worker for the Crassus family.
