Halo: the TV series arrives on Paramount Plus in 2022


Paramount Plus will broadcast the new Halo TV series, as confirmed by ViacomCBS during a press conference to illustrate the content coming to the channel. The series will debut in early 2022, a precise date has not yet been announced.

Showtime will produce the series but will not broadcast it on its channels, Halo is now a "Paramount + Original" series and will therefore only be visible and exclusively on this platform. The plans include the production of ten episodes directed by Otto Bathurst with Steven Kane in the role of Co-Showrunner alongside Kyle Killen. In the cast, Pablo Schrieber in the role of Master Chief and Jen Taylor in the role of Cortana, which are joined by names like Bokeem Woodbine, Shabana Azmi, Bentley Kalu, Natasha Culzac, Kate Kennedy, Danny Sapani, Olive Gray and Charlie Murphy.

The Halo TV series is produced in collaboration with Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television while 343 Industries' Frank O'Connor and Bonnie Ross appear as executive producers and supervisors of the opera. Unfortunately, there is no other information and the announcement of the arrival of Halo on Paramount Plus was not accompanied by trailers or promotional photos but only by the artwork you see in the Tweet below, which shows only the logo of the series, probably provisional. Halo debut on Paramount + is expected in the first half of 2022.

Halo TV Series Headed to Paramount+ Streaming Service

Paramount+ has announced that the Halo TV series will be headed exclusively to their platform in 2022, as confirmed via Twitter. The acquisition was announced during the ViacomCBS Streaming Event yesterday afternoon.

Deadline broke the story earlier in the evening that the series would be headed from Showtime to Paramount+.

Steven Spielberg is attached to the production via his production company Amblin Television and is developing the series with 343 Industries.

Chief Creative Officer of CBS and Chairman and CEO of Showtime Networks, David Nevins, spoke to Deadline about how the series will focus on the human element of the Spartan super soldiers.

It delivers the visceral excitement of playing the game, along with a much deeper emotional experience around the Spartans, human beings who got their humanity chemically and genetically altered. The story is about reclaiming what makes them human, and therefore it’s a very powerful story.

Halo’s journey to the small screen has been a long winding road dating back to 2013, and will premiere almost 9 years after it’s original announcement. We received some minor updates in 2018, when CBS and Showtime reassured us that the show was still in development and that Master Chief was set to be the series’ main protagonist.

Deadline reports that the series was about “55%-60%” done when the coronavirus pandemic shut down production last March. It was at this point that the Halo series was being eyed for the Paramount+ service.

The Halo TV series is set to hit Paramount+ in Q1 2022.
