With Starz's "Spartacus" series wrapping with the soon to air third season, Starz is looking into a way to continue its successful franchise and has come up with an idea - a spin-off series.
Talks are reportedly underway for a possible series centering around a young Julius Caesar who is introduced as a character in the upcoming season 'War Of The Damned'. Robert Tapert and Steven DeKnight would executive produce.
Todd Lasance plays Caesar in the new season and would thus almost certainly star in any potential Caesar-oriented spin-off.
Lasance made his name working on Australian soap "Home and Away" from 2007-2010, essentially serving as the hunky blond poster boy for the show. "Thor" actor Chris Hemsworth pretty much held that position from 2004-2007.
Meanwhile 'War of the Damned' is scheduled to premiere January 25th and a new poster has gone up which you can see below.
