Ausiello will once again interview Lucy who will be bringing a mystery guest with her when they meet again at the San Diego Comic Con. Here is the latest from Ausiello in his regular column at EW:

Question: It's common knowledge that you're going to Comic-Con. But what is not common knowledge is what exactly you'll be doing there. Spill it! --Jason

Ausiello: I don't think I like what you're insinuating. Similar to last year, I will be holed up at Entertainment Weekly's base camp at the [spoiler alert] Hotel conducting non-stop interviews with the casts of The Big Bang Theory, Fringe, Glee, Bones, Spartacus, Castle, etc. Prior to each interview I'll be soliciting questions via my Twitter account -- @michaelausiello -- so Start. Following. Me. Now. And in my down time, I'll be discreetly making my way around the convention floor hoping to get recognized taking in the sights.

Question: Will Lucy Lawless be returning for season 2 of Spartacus: Blood and Sand? I know she was knocking at death's door in the finale, but I'm praying she pulls through! --Jennifer

Ausiello: I'm keeping vigil right next to you, Jen! Unfortunately, I couldn't get a straight answer out of the show's EP, Steven S. DeKnight regarding Lawless' fate. "That's a good question that I can't quite answer yet," he hedged. "But she will be in the prequel. I can guarantee you that." I guess I'll just have to find out for myself later this week when I reunite with Lawless at Comic-Con. Speaking of which, rumor has it LL is bringing a friend with her to the EW video suite. (Hint: The friend in question was a major topic of conversation during our inaugural chat at last year's Con.)
