The Halo television series that will make its debut on Paramount+ on March 24 has already been renewed for a second season. That’s undoubtedly good news for a project that has been in the works for almost a decade and had several big names attached to it, including renowned filmmaker Steven Spielberg.
David Wiener, who is known for his work on Fear The Walking Dead and Brave New World has been confirmed as the Season 2’s showrunner and executive producer. The show’s season 1 which will start airing on March 24 will star Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief, Natascha McElhone as Dr. Halsey, and Jen Taylor as Cortana.
Because Paramount+ is currently only available in the US, Latin America, Canada, the Nordics, and Australia, not everyone will be able to watch this new Halo television series on March 24. However, the streaming service has teamed up with other distributors to bring the Halo series on SKY in Italy and Germany and on Canal+ in France before Paramount+ launches in these markets in the second half of 2022.
If you live in the UK or other European countries, you’re not completely out of luck. “Halo will debut in England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the Caribbean when Paramount+ launches by this summer, and on Paramount+ in South Korea during that same time frame. The series will also be available on SkyShowtime in select European regions once that service launches,” 343 Industries announced yesterday.
The much-anticipated Halo television series will follow the release of Halo Infinite on Xbox consoles and PC last fall, which had the biggest launch in the history of the 20 years old franchise. Halo’s rich science-fiction universe has already been adapted into several books and other media, and it will be interesting to see if this upcoming Halo TV series can expose the franchise to a brand new audience.
