Before Spartacus struck down his first opponent in the arena, there were many gladiators who passed though the gates onto the sand.'Spartacus: Gods of the Arena' tells the story of the original Champion of the House of Batiatus: Gannicus in a more ruthless time before Spartacus' arrival where honor was just finding its way into the arena.

The idea for the prequel, came from a conversation that creator Steven S. DeKnight had with actor John Hannah. Hannah's character had been killed off in the first season, but Hannah enjoyed working on the show so much that he told DeKnight he'd be more than willing to continue working with it somehow. As it was, production of the second season was on hold due to the declining health of star actor Andy Whitfield. So DeKnight's idea to shoot a prequel to season one was the ideal way to continue working with John Hannah and give audience members something to "feast on" until season two could go into production.

guys nobody is recognizing the role of batiatus.....i see no single comment mentioning about him....it is he who played long duration in all the episodes....and with his performance, has brought life to spartacus TV series...he was the one with highest dialogues in the serial, but he never made us feel bored of his role either in blood and sand or gods of the arena....he really showed us a true lanista......i agree that all the actors performed to their best.Anyways its a great entertainer for our period showing us about the lifestyle during the period of gladiators.I really love the politics in this series especially those played by lucretia and batiatus together in both blood and sand and also gods of the arena.....i really bow before the dialogue writer particularly for the phrase 'jupitor's c**k' during the scenes of frustration..
