'Spartacus: War Of The Damned' Final Season Trailer: War Comes To Rome (VIDEO)

The final season premiere of "Spartacus: War Of The Damned" is a month away, and Starz has released a new action-packed trailer for the gory gladiator drama.

Both the trailer above and Starz' official description of the season preview an epic war between the Spartacus-led rebels and the Roman army.

"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."

Newcomers Simon Merrells and Todd Lasance join the cast this season as Marcus Crassus and Julius Caesar. Liam McIntyre returns as Spartacus after taking on the role in "Spartacus: Vengeance" in the wake of Andy Whitfield's tragic death from non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

"Spartacus: War of the Damned" premieres Friday, January 25 at 9 p.m. ET on Starz.
