Spartacus Season 4 definitely not happening,it’s over forever. So, yeah, guys. The decision to end Spartacus after season 3 was actually made way back in June of 2012,or around that time,so season 4 is definitely not happening. Why? Well, it turns out that all the troubles and heartaches the show went through with the Death of Andy Whitfield and other issues,just proved to be to got damn much for show creator, Steven S. DeKnight, and he just wanted to end everything on a high note.

Here’s what Steven told IGN, “Starz always does the unexpected. This show has been challenged, to say the least, in many, many ways. We’ve faced many difficulties and tragedies on the show. My original plan was to attack the show in a five- to seven-season arc. Once we got into it and after Andy Whitfield’s passing and looking at the historical story of Spartacus, we came to the decision to basically end on a high note.”

From there,Steven continued to explain how difficult it was to keep the show going, and with any other network,it usually would’ve been canceled sooner, stating, “You know, the whole show was a huge risk from the start for Starz, and it was another huge risk when I decided to try to keep the show going after Andy’s passing. Any normal studio would have just cancelled the show at that point and not risk the financial downside of it not working.

But Starz, thankfully, really stuck by the show, and they really wanted it to be told all the way to the end. They didn’t want to cheat the viewers and just suddenly pull the plug. So they gave us this opportunity to wrap up the story.” So, there you go. That’s it guys,and well, at least you got a reason as to why the show ended, which doesn’t usually happen. Stay tuned.
