The Halo TV series has been in production for quite some time, and eager Halo fans have been wondering how it will turn out. Well, if this first trailer is any indication, then this show is going to be bonkers and faithful to the game. Looks like this is another reason to get Paramount Plus, folks.
In a war for humanity’s very survival, our deadliest weapon is our greatest hope. See Master Chief, Cortana, the Covenant, and the other Spartans of Silver Team more in this epic trailer for the new Paramount+ Original Series, Halo. Find the Halo, win the war.
In its adaptation for Paramount+, HALO will take place in the universe that first came to be in 2001 with the launch of Xbox’s first “Halo” game. Dramatizing an epic 26th-century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant, HALO the series will weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure, and a richly imagined vision of the future.
The series stars Pablo Schreiber (the Master Chief, Spartan John-117), Natascha McElhone (Dr. Halsey), Jen Taylor (Cortana), Bokeem Woodbine (Soren-066), Shabana Azmi (Admiral Margaret Parangosky), Natasha Culzac (Riz-028), Olive Gray (Miranda Keyes), Yerin Ha (Kwan Ha Boo), Bentley Kalu (Vannak-134), Kate Kennedy (Kai-125), Charlie Murphy (Makee) and Danny Sapani (Captain Jacob Keyes).
It’s looking mighty good on just about everything, with the exception of two things; Cortana and Master Chief. I expected Cortana to be, I dunno, bluer. I’m not sure why they choose to go this route, but we’ll have to wait. As for Master Chief, it’s going to be odd hearing someone else voice the iconic character. Especially since Steve Downes has voiced the spartan since the beginning and has the gruff nature of Master Chief down to a science. Just hearing Pablo Schreiber in the series, it doesn’t feel right. Hopefully, he grows on me.
The Halo TV series will debut exclusively on Paramount Plus on March 24, 2022.
