Here's the message from Andy courtesy of Starz:
To all of you incredibly generous human beings, who have supported, cared and collectively shared your stories, well wishes and inspiring words, all of which have had a profound and moving impact on me. Your time, energy and compassion have been the lift needed to glide over some of the bumpy terrain of the last few months. Thank you.
I am now training again and hungry to reunite with the fantastic cast and crew.
After this unexpected challenge but truly rewarding chapter, I have emerged feeling stronger, with a greater focus, commitment and passion and even more profound love of my family and friends.
I am very grateful for the extraordinary journey that was Season 1 and now after my own personal shake up, am even more determined and passionately committed to having Season 2 be very special indeed.
Thank you all again for your ongoing support.
Spartacus: Gods of the Arena focuses on the House of Batiatus, in the days before Spartacus arrived. Hannahís Batiatus is not yet the head of the family, or the ludus. Gannicus is the undisputed lead gladiator in the Ludus, but in the class-conscious world of ancient Capua, the House of Batiatus still hasnít earned the respect of local society, or the right for its gladiators to fight in the championship bouts. Gannicus must survive the arena to not only keep his place in the ludus but also rise to become the champion in all of Capua.
