At long last, fans of Microsoft’s iconic Halo series have something to cheer about. After years of attempts to get a TV or movie off the ground, we finally got our first teaser and the hype is building.

For years, Halo fans everywhere have been waiting for the moment when the popular video game would be brought to Hollywood. Instead of a movie, the FPS is getting its own TV series.


Showtime’s Halo series was first announced back in 2013, with Steven Spielberg serving as executive producer. Since then, production moved to Showtime and was in development for four years until June 28, 2018, when a 10-episode season was ordered.

As things stalled out fans were worried about its future but that fear is now gone as everyone finally got a glimpse of what’s to come.

While fans only got a short clip, the hype is real as people everywhere are already on the edge of their seats awaiting more information.

It’s been a long time coming, but the series is finally on its way for a release in the near future.


When is Halo coming out?

We now know that the first Halo episodes will be coming out sometime in 2022 and will be streaming exclusively on Paramount+. While this may seem quite vague, it still provides us with more information as this project has seen tons of delays.

There is no estimation on what part of the year it will come out, so fans can only hope at the moment that it will be in the early portion.

We will update you when the official trailer is released and a streaming date is announced.

The Halo TV series will notably feature Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief. The actor and the official account revealed a first look at the helmet he will wear in an Instagram post on November 10, 2020.


“Did you think we were finished? We’re just getting started,” the caption read.

Elsewhere, it was announced that the iconic AI Cortana was being recast by Jen Taylor as she played the character in the video game. Also, prominent Hindi actress, Shabana Azmi, will be playing Admiral Margaret Parangosky.

What is the plot of the Halo series?

The Halo franchise is still going strong.

The series is set to take place during the 26th-century conflict between humans and the alien species known as the Covenant.

Aside from this, not very much is known about the show at the moment, though Showtime CEO David Nevins called it the network’s “most ambitious series ever.”

“We expect audiences who have been anticipating it for years to be thoroughly rewarded,” he added.


As the Halo series moves closer to completion, we’ll be getting trailers and pieces of media that should provide more of an indication on the show and the story it will be telling.
