Are you guys ready for yet another round of blood, gore and sex that'll be splashed all over Spartacus: Vengeance? We know we are. And in order to whet our appetites, Starz has released another trailer to show you just how sexy and bloody season two will get.

From the trailer and what we've seen so far, it seems safe to assume that Liam McIntyre will (hopefully) grow on us in the title role of Spartacus. He looks, and sounds, awesome.

However, it's Lucy Lawless that we can't wait to see in her turn as a now bat-$#!% crazy Lucretia this season. And is it wrong of us to hope that that Ilithya (Viva Bianca) will soon get her comeuppance?

Here's the synopsis:

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.

Spartacus: Vengeance returns with a ... um ... vengeance on Starz Jan. 27, 2012.

Are you looking forward to it?
