I was wondering how Starz was planning to bring more Awesome after the final season of Spartacus next January. This could be really awesome or a dismal failure. Like Spartacus this will be an adult show...

Spartacus creator Steven DeKnight had one of the most thrilling announcements of Comic Con, even though it didn't happen on a panel or press conference. He's creating a brand new TV series for Starz, about a huge interplanetary war, in which humans fight aliens on a slew of exotic planets.

Talking to CinemaBlend at Comic Con, DeKnight explained a bit more about how Incursion will work. Each season will take place on a different planet — and they'll actually film in a location with the proper climate: "Let's do a jungle, let's do a desert, let's do an ice planet. Let's really explore those environments, and unlike Spartacus, we're actually going to go these locations. So, it won't be on green screen." There will be a cast of core characters on the show who come back every season — but this being a war show, there will be a lot of unexpected deaths as well.

“Incursion,” an epic science fiction action-thriller that follows a squad of soldiers caught in a war against a hostile alien race. Each season the battle will be fought on a new, exotic planet as humanity punches deeper into enemy territory. Grittily realistic combat, darkly complex characters and intrigue on a cosmic scale will permeate the tale of fighting men and women facing the pressures of war and an enemy unlike any ever seen.
