NEW YORK — Starz network says it is ending its highly successful “Spartacus” saga next season.
In an unusual move announced Monday, Starz will conclude this action-adventure series while it’s still a big hit, and after logging only three seasons (or four, counting a “prequel” season). This season the series drew 6 million viewers, an enormous number for a paid subscription channel.
Creator-executive producer Steven S. DeKnight promises a “stunningly epic” final season that will kick off in January.
