While that early look at the first scene of Spartacus' return to the savage world of gladiatorial rebellion set the stage—and that first full trailer teased the return of Lucy Lawless—this last trailer before the Jan. 27 premiere promises all the battle, blood and boobs you could possibly want.

There are many things you can about creator-executive producer Steven S. DeKnight's Roman escapade—it's unabashed exploitation, the computer effects can look a little plastic-y—Spartacus can never be accused of not going for it.

I mean, there's a scene in here where some dude's face gets sliced off. COME ON!

Here's the synopsis, just in case you need to know what all that madness is about:

On the heels of the bloody escape from the House of Batiatus that concluded Spartacus: Blood and Sand, the gladiator rebellion continues and begins to strike fear into the heart of the Roman Republic in Spartacus: Vengeance. Gaius Claudius Glaber and his Roman troops are sent to Capua to crush the growing band of freed slaves that Spartacus leads before it can inflict further damage. Spartacus is presented the choice of satisfying his personal need for vengeance against the man that condemned his wife to slavery and eventual death or making the larger sacrifices necessary to keep his budding army from breaking apart. Containing all of the blood-soaked action, exotic sexuality, and villainy and heroism that has come to distinguish the series, the tale of Spartacus resumes in epic fashion.

Me, personally, I was on board once wanton bloodletting and nudity were back on the table.
