When Paramount + was officially launched, mention was already made of a series based on the ‘Halo’ video game saga. Now we finally have more data, although concise: Microsoft has taught a very short teaser from the ‘Halo’ series at its 20th anniversary event for Xbox consoles. All nine episodes of its first season will air exclusively on Paramount +.
“Hello, Master Chief”
What little we can see promises: the Master Chief’s scarred back as he dons his helmet and is greeted by a female voice through his helmet. Cortana? Any missionary companions? This is the official synopsis that has been included with the video:
“Halo: The Series will launch on Paramount + in 2022. Halo is an upcoming American sci-fi military live-action series based on the Halo video game franchise. The series will focus on the 26th century war between the Space Command of the United Nations and the Alien Alliance The Pact “
The role of the master chief will be played by actor Pablo Schreiber (‘The Wire’, ‘Orange is The New Black’), and Steve Spielberg’s Amblin studio has produced it. 343 Industries, the games developer itself, also took part in the development of its episodes. Other actors who will appear in the series are Bokeem Woodbine, Bentley Kalu, Natasha Culzac and Kate Kennedy.
Paramount + is not available in Spain, but its catalog may arrive with SkyShowtime next year. As the months go by we will have more news about this.
