I hate to start the weekend off with bad news, but it is being reported by several entertainment sites around the internets tonight that the cancer that side lined Andy Whitfield has returned and as a result he will not be returning to Spartacus. Starz had produced a “prequel” Season (Gods of the Arena) while he was undergoing treatment with the hopes that he would return for a third.
It does not appear that that will be the case now. No word on whether or not Starz will recast the role.
Geekpropaganda wishes Andy a full recovery and will miss him kicking all kinds of Roman ass on Spartacus.
