Here’s some exciting news for Halo fans. The Halo series has been renewed for a second season ahead of its official launch on March 24. Just in case we need to spell that out clearly, the show is getting a second season even before the first season starts.

This was announced by Paramount+ where Halo is going to be exclusively streaming. The first season has Kyle Killen (Lone Star, Awake, Mind Games) as showrunner. He'll be joined by David Wiener (Homecoming, The Killing, Brave New World) who is also serving as executive producer for the second season.

In a statement, Paramount+ chief programming officer Tanya Giles shared that Halo offered a world-building opportunity for the studio, so they're thrilled to give fans something to expect by giving a second season. She went on to say that the show is set to offer a thrill ride not only for fans of the game but even non-gamers.

Meanwhile, Paramount+ chief content officer David Nevins revealed that the show is set to delight viewers not only with the visuals but also with the character-driven storytelling. He added that the second season pickup is proof that they have confidence in this epic series and its power to attract and engage viewers.

As a game, Halo was able to reinvent how people thought about video games. Since its initial release, it has become a global entertainment phenomenon and sold more than 82 million copies around the world.

The TV adaptation takes place in the same universe that was introduced in the first game. It’s going to tell the story of the 26th-century battle between humanity and the alien threat known as the Covenant.

The series is headlined by Pablo Schreiber (American Gods) taking on the role of Master Chief, Spartan-117. There is also Natascha McElhone (Californication) as Dr. Halsey and Jen Taylor (Halo game series, RWBY) as the AI Cortana.

Other stars include:

  • Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo)
  • Shabana Azmi (Fire)
  • Natasha Culzac (The Witcher)
  • Olive Gray (Half Moon Investigations)
  • Yerin Ha (Reef Break)
  • Bentley Kalu (Avengers: Age of Ultron)
  • Kate Kennedy (Catastrophe)
  • Charlie Murphy (Peaky Blinders)
  • Danny Sapani (Penny Dreadful)
  • Ryan McParland (6Degrees)
  • Burn Gorman (The Expanse)
  • Fiona O’Shaughnessy (Nina Forever)

Halo is available in all markets that offer Paramount+, including the US, Latin America, Canada, the Nordics, and Australia. Paramount+ is also debuting in other regions within the year.
