Expected to arrive in the first half of 2022, Halo is based on the best-selling video game franchise and stars Pablo Schreiber as the Spartan super soldier Master Chief.
The drama was first announced back in 2014 when it was poised to bring Xbox into the scripted TV space. The big-budget show ultimately landed at Showtime, which picked up Halo to series in 2018 and tapped Kyle Killen (Awake) as showrunner. Since then, Halo has already parted ways with its original director and added a co-showrunner (Steven Kane), with both having exited Halo after production on season one wrapped. Ultimately, ViacomCBS made the decision to move Halo to its streamer, Paramount+, as the platform — like Amazon and Peacock — looks for its big, broad breakout.
