Spartacus is front and center in the final key art for "Spartacus: War of the Damned," which will premiere on Starz at 8 p.m. Jan. 25.

The image shows the rebel leader, played by Liam McIntyre, holding a broken and bloody Roman eagle standard in one hand and his sword in the other. Behind him, his army of rebels march toward what we can only assume is the final showdown between them and the Roman legions,

"Spartacus: War of the Damned" is the third and final season of the franchise, which also presented a prequel called "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena." here's what Starz has to say about the upcoming season:

The season opens and Gaius Claudius Glaber is dead. Many months have passed since his defeat, and the rebel army, led by Spartacus and his generals Crixus, Gannicus and Agron continue to amass victories over Rome. With the rebel numbers swelling to thousands of freed slaves, and Spartacus more determined than ever to bring down the entire Roman Republic, the horde become a force that challenges even the mighty armies of Rome. Together, the rebels engage in one bloody skirmish after another and prepare for the inevitable: a full out war.

Joining McIntyre this season are returning stars Manu Bennett as Crixus, Dustin Clareas as Gannicus, Dan Feuerriegel as Agron, Cynthia Addai-Robinson as Naevia and Ellen Hollman as Saxa. New cast members include Simon Merrells as Marcus Crassus and Todd Lasance as Julius Caesar.
